Revolutionary nanotechnology charges smartphone in mere 30 seconds
Charging you gadgets in a matter of seconds could become a reality as an Israeli based company has invented a revolutionary nanotechnology which is a collection of nanodots of biological origin which have enhanced electrode capacitance. Add to that the increased battery life expectancy that can survive thousands of charges and you have a battery charging solution that will ridicule all other methods without question. At Microsoft’s Think Next conference Tel Aviv University revealed its prototype charging device called StoreDot that can juice up your smartphone in just 30 seconds using Multi Function Electrode and that technology could be in your hands come the year 2016.
StoreDot phone charger can be made easily under manageable costs since it requires naturally available organic compounds called peptides (short chains of amino acids) and use a very basic biological method of self-assembly.
The demonstration was done on Samsung Galaxy 4 and the firm claimed that it is making similar charger for other phones too. At this point, the charger is almost the size of a laptop but they are hard at work to reduce the size considerably. Although the charger is going to cost almost twice more than an average charger at around $30 but owing to the benefits it can put forth, this amount is very small.
This technology is quite similar to the supercapacitor made by 18-year old Eesha Khare which also charges your phone in under a minute and lasts for thousands of charge/discharge cycles.
