One of the biggest downfalls of the smartphone era is the fact that we’re constantly charging our cell phones. Old Nokias used to last almost a full week without needing a charge, yet the average iPhone can barely make it through a work day. But a new product from Israel may eliminate that concern.
StoreDot is developing a phone charger that could recharge a smartphone battery in just 30 seconds. The prototype was revealed at Microsoft’s Think Next conference in Tel Aviv.
At the moment, the charger is about the size of a laptop charger, but the goal is to shrink it to the size of a cell phone. StoreDot uses bio-organic raw materials so it’s friendly to the environment. The developers are aiming to set a $30 price for the device, making it affordable for just about any smartphone user.
StoreDot’s accelerated phone charger is schedeuled to hit store shelves some time in 2016. Little information is known about which phones it will support or how long the charge it provides will last, but this could certainly change the way the world uses smartphones in the future.
