It’s time to take technology one step further with a battery that can charge your phone in 30 seconds.
Charging and re-charging every day is one of the most irritating parts of owning a smartphone. Due to excessive social networks and application usage, phones’ batteries don’t last up to even a few hours. But all hassle is going to vanish in the coming years. An Israeli company, StoreDot has posted a video introducing a unique technology that can charge a cell phone battery in just 30 seconds.
According to the video, the technology was born out of Alzheimer’s research at Tel Aviv University. “During that research, specific amino acids were isolated and we managed to use those amino acids and peptides to create nanocrystals,” said Doron Myersdorf, founder and CEO of StoreDot. “These have special properties that enable us to use them in various devices, such as a battery.”
Besides charging battery within 30 seconds, the new technology continues to charge your battery once you’ve unplugged it from the outlet, according to Myersdorf.
As they say, greater the invention, greater its cost; the firm says the new technology will cost about double that of a standard battery pack, and the company is on track to make the device small enough to pack into a standard smartphone by 2016.
However, the real challenge is to make it available and adaptable on all smartphone devices because the battery featured in the video is about the size of a cigarette pack.
