Graphene Could Help Change Batteries as We Know Them

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is a Research Alert Issued by Century Capital Research

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/28/12 -- General Electric Focus Forward is an unprecedented new series of 30 three-minute stories about innovative people who are reshaping the world through act or invention, directed by the world's most celebrated documentary filmmakers. THE SUPER SUPERCAPACITOR is a Finalist in the $200,000 FOCUS FORWARD Filmmaker Competition and is in the running to become the $100,000 Grand Prize Winner.

In this short clip (http://vimeo.com/51873011) graphene, already a well known substance, was being put through the phases to be produced in large quantities and for a low cost. During this process it was discovered that graphene can hold a charge similar to a battery. A small piece of graphene, when charged for 2 to 3 seconds, lit a small light for upwards of 5 minutes. By developing a supercapacitor made with graphene, one could theoretically charge a consumer electronic device in a fraction of the time it currently takes.

Apple, Samsung, GM, Toyota and other companies that look for innovative ways to power their products they will inevitably turn to the possibility of using graphene. As companies look to expand into the potential of graphene, more graphite will need to be mined. The closure of graphite mines in China, which produces 75% of the world's graphite, has resulted in a fall in global graphite production to 1.3 million tonnes per annum in 2011. Like rare earths, China is restricting the export of graphite to protect its own domestic industries. The second largest producer is India, followed by Brazil, North Korea, Austria and Canada.

USA Graphite (OTCQB: USGT), an exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of world-class graphite properties in North America, recently announced their intent to conduct both a bulk sampling program and detailed mapping study over the entire extent of the graphitic hornfels units at its flagship Blue Wing Mountains graphite project in the first quarter of 2013.
