Is Your Laptop Too Hot to Handle?

We rely on our computers for many tasks throughout our days. From browsing the internet to crunching numbers in Excel, to creating vibrant Power Point presentations and writing copy, we’re using our laptops to multitask and get our jobs done. And now in these times of COVID-19, many of us are using our laptops to tackle our work from home, or children are using them to attend their classes remotely. We demand our computers to work hard, churning through gigs of data to create videos, play games and more.

And that means many of us find our laptops heating up. Unlike desktop PCs, laptops are much smaller in size, not allowing much room for the internal components to have space for air movement. Thermal stress can cause irreparable damage to your laptop. Persistent overheating can fry the motherboard, video card and other internal components of your laptop. It also can decrease your laptop’s lifespan. Overheating can also make the laptop’s battery lose a charge quickly, and if left untreated, could even cause the battery to explode.

Global Graphene Group has the solution to laptops’ thermal management problem. Our heat spreader thermal films dissipate heat throughout a laptop, or any other consumer electronic device, to keep it cool and operating efficiently and safely.

Our AT1500 thermal film dissipates heat twice as fast as a commonly used graphite sheet. Just a thin layer of our thermal film will help laptops run cooler, extending their lifespan. Your laptop will be more reliable, continuing to work hard just like you. And don’t worry about a potentially exploding laptop battery! Our thermal films keep the heat moving away from the battery, eliminating the chance for a fire to spark.

This thermal management technology isn’t years away – it’s available NOW. G3’s thermal film is a drop-in solution, letting computer manufacturers easily incorporate it into their existing production process. Computer manufacturers can leverage graphene’s thermal management properties now in our thin thermal film solutions, which can be cut and sized to exact measurements needed for each laptop model. Our thermal films will keep your laptop cool while you put it to work.

On Demand Webinar- Si-Anode EV Battery Technology

EV battery technology is a hot topic now. Many EV OEMs are looking for ways to improve their battery performance. Unfortunately, many solutions are still 7-10 years away. But Global Graphene Group has EV battery solutions available today.

Dr. Bor Jang, G3 CEO and co-founder, presented a live webinar on EV battery technology and the suite of solutions G3 has developed, patented and has available now for EV OEMs. Our drop-in solutions can easily be incorporated into EV OEMs’ existing manufacturing processes to significantly improve their battery performance, extending driving range, improving energy density and lowering costs.

EV Adoption is Sooner than You Think

Years ago, Hanna-Barbera would have us think that we’d be living in 2020 driving flying cars. George Jetson zipped off to Spacely Sprockets for work in his flying car and made the idea of crazy advanced transportation being accessible to everyday people seem possible. All these years later, we’re still driving our gas guzzlers, but there are electric vehicles on the roads today. (Yes, we don’t have flying cars, yet…)

Electric vehicles are still in their early stages of adoption, especially in the US. 2019 EV sales in the US totaled 330,000. However, US EV sales account for only 2.2% market share. There is still major room for growth in the automotive sector for electric vehicles.

There are several factors for why EV’s have been slow to take off:

  • EV’s are expensive.
  • EV battery’s take long to recharge.
  • EV battery’s pose safety risks, with many accounts of EV’s catching fire.

Our Global Graphene Group headquarters of Dayton, Ohio, USA, is a Midwestern city known for its extraordinary innovation history. (Everyone has heard of the founders of flight, the Wright Brothers, right?) We have a population of around 800,000 in the metro area. We are situated along several large interstate highways, with gas stations always nearby. There are 82 charging stations in a 15 km radius of Dayton. That’s a far cry from the hundreds of traditional gas stations dotted around the region. Seventy-nine percent of the EV charging stations are free to use. Most charging stations have one or two available slots, meaning you may be forced to wait your turn to charge up your car. We’re used to quickly fueling up and going on our way. Who has time to wait 30 or more minutes to recharge their car?

Electric vehicles are the future and graphene helps that future become a reality now. Global Graphene Group’s experts have developed and tested graphene-enabled battery technology that is proven to allow EVs to:

  • Run for 1 million miles without replacing the battery
  • Drive for more than 500 miles on a single charge
  • Cost 40% less than current EV batteries
  • Recharge in 2-6 minutes
  • Be 100% safe from flammability problems

With G3’s innovative battery solutions, EVs will become less expensive. Consumers will trust that their electric vehicle won’t catch fire in their garage while recharging. Longer road trips will be possible without the need to find an out of the way charging station as your EV will able to go further on a single charge. Suddenly, an electric vehicle becomes transportation that people can easily fit into their lifestyle. And that’s when EVs will be more adopted and explode in popularity. Graphene is the key to making electric vehicles safer, cost-effective and more sustainable.
