Charge Your Phone in 30 Seconds

Reuters reports about an Israeli company that claims to have developed a prototype that could charge a mobile phone in 30 seconds.
“Using nano-technology to synthesize artificial molecules, Tel Aviv-based StoreDot says it has developed a battery that can store a much higher charge more quickly, in effect acting like a super-dense sponge to soak up power and retain it.”
The technology could eventually charge a car in minutes, rather than hours – this would be something of a massive breakthrough for electric cars, with battery charging being one of their biggest drawbacks.
The company says that the technology now exists, but needs to be refined before it can be implemented into consumer devices. They’ve received $48 million in funding to help them achieve that goal and say that it could be ready for all of us in 2016.
