A Smartphone Battery that Recharges in 30 Seconds – Dario Borghino (Gizmag)
On Monday at Microsoft’s Think Next symposium in Tel Aviv, Israeli startup StoreDot demonstrated the prototype of a nanodot-based smartphone battery it claims can fully charge in under 30 seconds.
With the company having plans for mass production, this technology could change the way we interact with portable electronics, and perhaps even help realize the dream of a fast-charging electric car.
StoreDot produces nanodots, chemically synthesized bio-organic peptide molecules that improve electrode capacitance and electrolyte performance. The end result is batteries that can be fully charged in seconds rather than hours.
The membrane looks and feels like plastic wrap, it can be cut with a pair of scissors to fit any bone in the body and is naturally absorbed into the body after 10 months. The material has already been used in dental procedures to replace bone grafts. (Yahoo)
