StoreDot Charges Smartphone Battery in 30 Seconds [Video]

At the Microsoft Think Next conference in Tel Aviv, StoreDot unveiled a prototype charger that can recharge your smartphone battery in 30 seconds, reports the WSJ. The Israeli startup was born out of the nanotechnology department at Tel Aviv University. The initial prototype was developed for the Galaxy S4; however, the company plans to make chargers for other devices as well.

StoreDot has been developing biological semiconductors, made from naturally occurring organic compounds called peptides, or short chains of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. The technology can be used, among other things, to speed charging times, the company says.

The prototype charger is around the size of a laptop charger; however, StoreDot is working on reducing its size. Production is planned for late 2016 and the charger is expected to cost twice that of an average phone charger.

Smart arse! the point is, this girl came up with this innovation when like you said company's have been trying for years it's still going to take 2yrs before they release it, if the student had the proper resources back then we would have this technology already available to us!

There are plenty of technologies that have been successfully demonstrated but take decades to be released. Demonstrating something and mass producing it are two completely different things. MIT demonstrated rapid charging in 2009 and I'm sure there have been others long before that.
