Abstract:
How many times you could not attend that important call because the battery was low? A California based teen has developed a super-capacitor that could lead to a 20 second phone charge. Eesha Khare, 18, of Saratoga, California has achieved what many phone manufacturers were trying for decades. This also mean that you no longer need those mobile applications which constantly tracks battery usage per application.

Breakthrough in mobile charging technology

San Francisco, CA | Posted on July 17th, 2013

"I will be setting the world on fire," she told CBS San Francisco.

"The super-capacitor I have developed uses a special nanostructure, which allows for a lot greater energy per unit volume," Khare said in a video interview at last week's 2013 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix. A phone could be fully charged in 20 to 30 seconds since Khare's tiny device fits inside cell-phone batteries. This sort of advancement in energy storage could also be applied to laptops and electric vehicles, among other devices.
This development can open flood gates to new style of mobile application development with rich graphics or even 3D technology. The mobile application developers will no longer need to be conscious about battery usage by their application. Various gaming applications are rich on battery usage which has discouraged users for installing such applications.

It may be a while before this technology is made available by manufacturers. We will like to congratulate Eesha Khare for her achievement and with her good luck for future studies in scientific advancements.
