Charge your handset in just 30 seconds. Seems crazy, isn’t. An Israeli firm has created a new material inspired by nature that can charge smartphones within seconds.
The Israeli company StoreDot has unveiled a prototype for a new kind of battery based on amino acids and peptides.
The idea to have such battery was conceived by one of its founders, Professor Gil Rosenman, when he was researching a cure for Alzheimer at the Tel Aviv University ten years ago.
Professor Rosenman and his team were able to isolate specific amino acids that interfered in the brain’s electrical charge, so his team could create nanocrystals from these amino acids that could charge devices much faster than regular batteries.
The tiny conductive nanocrystals can charge the battery of a smartphone from zero to 100 percent in half-a-minute, providing up to two hours of battery back-up.
The company says, its working to improve the time to allow the user to have a full charge the whole day, not just two or three hours.
The size of the actual battery and charge is similar now to that of a laptop computer, but the firm believes that it will take only one year to bring it down to a regular size.
