Futuristic Battery Can Charge A Smartphone In 30 Seconds [Video]

Supercharge your devices in less than a minute.

Tiffany Nesbit

For many smartphone users it is unlikely to get through an entire day without recharging your phone, but that could soon be a thing of the past.

StoreDot, an Israeli firm, has just released a prototype charger that they say will fully charge your smartphone in 30 seconds. Designed for the Samsung Galaxy S4, this speedy charger uses biological semiconductors to reduce charging time.

StoreDot’s charger is currently the size of a laptop charger, but engineers are hard at work to reduce it. The company also intends to make futuristic batteries for other phones. The current chargers are planned for production in 2016, and will be priced around $60.

To witness the super charger at work with your own eyes, see video below.
