Teenager Supercapacitor Invention Could Charge Cell Phones in 20 Seconds

Eesha Khare of Saratoga, CA was tired of waiting for her phone batteries continually dying so she invented a solution. That solution was a fast charging device capable of getting a full charge in as little as 20 seconds. The invention won Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award – a total of $50,000.

What’s even more remarkable about the nano-scale battery is its ability to last for 10,000 recharge cycles unlike traditional rechargeables that lasts for about 1,000 cycles. Khare mentions that the battery is also flexible – it can be rolled up like fabric. Intel’s website also mention that the invention has potential application in car batteries as well. Congratulations Eesha!
