Nanotechnology might just be about to change smartphone charging forever, by “manipulating matter on a tiny, molecular scale.”
Yeah, we don’t get it either, but it sounds good. And anything that will charge my phone from empty to full in just 30 seconds gets my thumbs up from the get-go.
The geniuses behind the ‘StoreDot’ claim that the batteries in the charger will work like a ‘super-dense sponge’ which soaks up power.
The Roman Abramovich backed company already has a prototype, and unbelievably, it actually works. The prototype can absorb a full day’s power in just around 30 seconds. Decent.
Currently, the prototype is way too big to go to market. However the Tel Aviv company say they could have a slim, working version ready to go in 2016.
Doron Myersdorf, founder of StoreDot said:
These are new materials, they have never been developed before. Fast-charge phones would cost around £65 more than current models.Advertisement
