Eight years ago, China’s Xinhua News Agency started a viral rumor when it went public with a speculation that Tesla’s next battery may be 100% lithium-free and still deliver a then unheard-of highway range of 500 miles.
The mystery material at the heart of this theoretical new battery was graphene — a highly experimental form of carbon that just four years prior in 2010 won its researchers the Nobel Prize.
In the years since these rumors first made the news wires, the situation has evolved substantially.
Graphene is no longer the largely experimental material that it was. Today, mass production of the two-dimensional nanostructure is making the material cheaper and easier to work with, and that, in turn, is making all of those theoretical applications more and more real every day.
One of the most notable applications now emerging from the theoretical realm is the mythical graphene-based rechargeable battery.
As you read this, there is an actual company in operation whose sole mission is building and marketing a functioning graphene aluminum-ion battery.
Before I get into that, however, let me give you a taste of what this new technology will offer the world.
Here’s just a taste of what it has to offer…
From Zero to Full Charge in Less Than 60 Seconds
Up to three times longer service life… up to 70 times the charge speed… zero lithium used in production.
While the first two advantages will make EV producers like Tesla and Rivian (not to mention owners) salivate, it’s the third item that could prove to make the real difference.
You see, lithium, which is essential in the construction of almost every rechargeable battery in the world today, is also one of the most troublesome supply chain conundrums faced by modern industry.
China, whose communist regime is anything but friendly with the West and the U.S. in particular, is rapidly buying up lithium production capacity and reserve-bearing properties across the world.
By the end of the decade, as much as 70% of global reserves might be in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
And that’s not even taking into account that spiking demand for lithium-based storage capacity is already outstripping supply.
By contrast, graphene, which can now be made using natural gas as the primary raw material, is about to become more abundant than ever.
There are no supply chain issues, and the end product, as the service life and charge-speed figures clearly indicate, is in a different universe in terms of performance.
Just imagine being able to charge your Tesla in less times than it takes an owner of a gas-driven vehicle to fill the tank.
Imagine being able to own it for three times longer without major repairs or overhauls.

In 10 Years, Every Battery You Own Could Run on Graphene
That’s just the beginning of the story for graphene battery power. Enhanced reliability, safety, and even more improvements in performance will soon render the lithium standard completely obsolete.
The company I mentioned that’s pioneering graphene battery technology is already a good ways down the road of research and development.
In December 2021, the company initiated operations at its first battery production facility in Brisbane, Australia.
Just three weeks later, the company sent out prototype graphene batteries to prospective clients around the world for testing and validation.
In March of this year, the firm signed an agreement with Wood PLC, one of the world’s foremost engineering consulting brands, to develop expansion plans to scale up graphene production.
All of this points to several facts. First of all, the technology is viable. Second of all, the company is starting to move away from research and development and toward commercialization.
That makes now the Holy Grail moment for investors, because while the market capitalization for this company still hovers in the $300 million range, it is now closer than ever to taking a serious piece out of the $40 billion-per-year lithium-ion market.
The Next Few Minutes Could Make All the Difference
Unlike most companies in this pre-commercialization stage, this particular firm is already public and trading on multiple North American exchanges.
You can literally buy its stock online right now, sit back, and wait for the revolution to start.
Before you do anything like that, however, you should get all of the facts and understand all of the risks.
To make this easier for you, I’ve put together a quick and concise video that explains the science, the engineering, and the market that it will impact.
It will take a few minutes, but you will emerge informed and ready to make a decision.
Access is instant and completely free of charge, but the information you receive just may be priceless.
Just bear in mind that this stock has seen some unprecedented activity in the last few weeks, for obvious reasons. It’s one of the biggest bargains on the market at the moment, but that will likely not last much longer.
