A smartphone charge in five minutes

17.05.2017 | Tech Xplore | www.techxplore.com

Charging time endured is just a fact of life when you are depending on your mobile gadget. Now there is news of a phone that charges fully in just five minutes—and it could be on the scene next year.

The spotlight is on StoreDot, an Israeli startup, which has the technology. StoreDot has produced mock-ups of a smartphone charging in a special dock. The company said this was not just about smartphones charging faster but could serve any mobile device.

Super fast charging

But what makes their battery technology stand out? Technology uses organic nanocomponents that allow for a faster ion transference between the anode and the cathode or the battery, best known as the positive and negative ends.

The “non-traditional” nanomaterials used by StoreDot make these reactions happen way faster, and they make batteries charge devices way faster too as a result. What these materials are, however, remains a mystery.
