Flash Battery Charges Your Phone In Seconds
StoreDot demos Ferrari-fast device charger
It’s been said that battery life is the largest hurdle to overcome in consumer tech. But technology on display at this year’s CES conference may have breached the ability to charge our smartphones and other devices in under 60 seconds. It’s called the StoreDot flash battery and charger and comes from a former SanDisk employee who helped develop flash memory at the company.
About eight months ago, the Israeli startup posted a demo video of their product fully charging a Samsung phone in under a minute. The size of the battery and charger were impractical for daily use, but it reportedly got the job done. Recent advancements have allowed the company to develop a much slimmer version for their CES showcase.
