Going by the title, its hard to believe that such a technology exists as of today. But believe it or not, an Israeli start-up firm named Storedot has developed a new battery technology that can completely charge your phone’s battery within 30 seconds. Still cant believe us? Watch the video below to believe it.
The ultra fast battery charging technology which is still in a prototype stage was demonstrated on a Samsung galaxy S3. In the demo video, we can clearly see that the prototype charger, along with the battery is exactly the size of an laptop charger. But according to Storedot, they’re putting their efforts into reducing its size, which they’re expecting to achieve exactly in a year or so.
The technology behind Storedot’s ultra fast charging technology is called as “Nanodots” and as of now Storedot has already received 6 millions in funding for its further development. The new technology isn’t just limited to smartphones only, the company also has its plan to develop it further for use in industries such as mobile displays, energy storage, memory storage, semiconductors, imaging and bio-medical sensors, food bio-labeling and more.
The estimated cost of Storedot’s ultra fast charger will be twice that of today’s average phone charges and most possibly it will be priced around $30. However the mass production of the chargers isn’t expected to begin until late 2016.
