Battery Charges in 30 Seconds

A battery that can charge in under 30 seconds has been shown off at a technology conference.

The device is made up of biological structures and was demonstrated by Israeli start-up StoreDot at Microsoft's Think Next conference.

In the demonstration, a battery pack the size of a cigarette packet was attached to a Samsung S4 Smartphone. The battery went from dead to full power in just 30 seconds.

The bio organic battery utilises self-assembling nano crystals that were first identified during research for Alzheimer's disease.

Founder, Dr Dorn Myersdorf said: "We think we can integrate a battery into a smartphone within a year and have a commercially ready device in three years.

"Batteries are just one of the industries we can disrupt with this new material. It is new physics, new chemistry, a new approach to devices."
