Start-Up Promises Smartphone Charging in 30 Seconds
StoreDot unveiled the device Monday at Microsoft's Think Next Conference in Tel Aviv. The prototype charger is capable to charge your Smartphone 100% within few blinks of your eyes, all in about 30 seconds. It depends on bio-organic quantum dots that are nano in size, tiny conductive crystals that help enable nimble charging.
StoreDot is a Nanotechnology Research Company and came across the technology while creating biological semiconductors that can, among other things, store a charge, emit visible light and be used to produce high-capacity, or quick-charging, batteries.
In the present, the size of the prototype charger is same as of a laptop charger, but the company says it working on reducing its size.
This charger prototype has been developed for Samsung’s Galaxy 4 and company says it has plans to make chargers for other Smartphones as well. The Wall Street Journal reports the company hopes to begin production in "late 2016."
For the moment, the estimated cost is up to $30, as the company has not revealed its actual cost; just provide a rough idea that it will be double the cost of a normal charger.
