Is Graphene Just An Overhyped Myth?

Graphene, the wonder material of the 21st century, boasts a laundry list of amazing properties which you’re probably tired of seeing by now. 

Unfortunately, it also has a much shorter list of drawbacks. 

Perhaps the most negative characteristic of graphene is the very hype which made it so famous to begin with. 

I’ve been writing on the topic of this strongest material ever discovered for years now, and if there’s one consistency in the comments and responses I get, it’s that graphene has failed to deliver on any of its purportedly world-changing promises. 

Failed… Because it’s simply never materialized in the marketplace the way everyone was led to believe it would. 

From mainstream media’s point of view, graphene hype came to a crescendo around the mid 2010s, and since then, everything’s gone quiet. 

The doubters, more than likely, declared themselves right and wrote off the controversy as resolved.

Graphene Commercialization Has Been Going On For A Decade

In reality, it was anything but. 

Because while Graphene was once a super-exotic material that cost twice as much as gold to produce, today, we’re starting to see it produced by multiple companies for far less. 

And more importantly, we’re starting to see the material appearing as an additive in a variety of familiar products. 

There is a graphene-coated aluminum foil available, offering superior electric conductivity. 

There were graphene-coated skis available years ago, as well as graphene coated helmets and graphene-‘enhanced’ athletic shoes

Graphene has been incorporated into modern racing bicycles, with one company — Dassi — producing a frame that is 1% graphene and weighs less than 2 lbs.

As early as 2016, portable graphene-based sensors capable of detecting small molecules in real time, were already making waves in the biotech sector. 

A Chinese company, FiiO Electronics, is making and selling next-generation ear-phones with graphene diaphragm-drivers reportedly capable of unmatched clarity and depth of sound. 

Graphene Is Plastic 2.0

These products and many others entered the market without most of us noticing. Today, many of them are available on Amazon. 

All of this points to one thing: Graphene is no longer just another mythical super material, but a bonafide industrial additive.

As the case was for many once overhyped technologies, including the compact disc, the DVD, the MP3 player, the cellular phone, and a host of other now iconic consumer products, graphene went mainstream while most of us were looking the other way. 

And as it gets cheaper to produce and becomes a more prevalent component of more and more products, we will see a radical increase in the quality of the things we own. 

The one application which graphene has potential to completely revolutionize, and my personal favorite, is the rechargeable battery. 

There is a company operating out of Brisbane, Australia, that’s currently producing early production batches of lithium-free, graphene based rechargeable batteries in coin and pouch format. 

The performance figures on these batteries are nothing short of otherworldly. 

Charge Your Tesla In 1 Minute With Graphene Batteries?

We’re talking 2-3 times the charge capacity and lifespan as lithium, and up to 70x the charge speed. 

That means you could have charged your phone, or even your car, twice, in the time it’s taken you to get this far in this article.

Just imagine: EV charging that’s quicker than pumping fuel, in a market where charge delay stands as the main hurdle to first-time adoption. 

These batteries aren’t just quicker, longer-lived and more energy-dense, but they’re also far safer with no fire risk to speak of. 

The company behind this battery is able to do what it’s doing thanks in large part to a proprietary graphene production method requiring just natural gas and electricity as building blocks. 

The result is some of the cheapest, highest quality graphene ever made — a perfect fit for next-gen batteries. 

The Real Graphene Bull Market Hasn’t Yet Started… Get Ahead Of It

This company is small, hyper focused on graphene, and is already trading on two North American exchanges. 

And like most things graphene related these days, it’s been overlooked, with the market cap barely breaking $50M. 

Once these batteries hit the market, however, it could just be game over for the $85B/year lithium ion battery industry

But just imagine what we can do with lighter, smaller, more powerful, faster-charging batteries on this level?

It could transform the world in just a few short years, opening the door to further advancement that’s hard to imagine today.

Remember, the best time to buy isn’t when the MSM starts touting something… It’s before.
