A battery that uses nanotechnology to charge your smart phone in 30 seconds may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie but an Israeli startup claims to have created just that.
StoreDot unveiled its battery charging prototype Monday at Microsoft's Think Next conference in Tel Aviv.
StoreDot's prototype is able to completely recharge a smart phone battery from 0%-100% in just 30 seconds. It relies on bio-organic nanodots, tiny conductive crystals that help enable rapid charging.
Currently, the device is closer in size to a laptop charger than a smart phone charger, but the company says it expects the final product will be about the size of a typical smart phone battery.
