Israeli firm working on 30-second phone charger

Jerusalem (AFP) April 08, 2014


An Israeli startup said on Tuesday that it was working to develop a bio-organic system that can recharge a smartphone battery in just 30 seconds.

Tel Aviv-based StoreDot's prototype battery and charger is currently being tested with Samsung's Galaxy phones, but the startup's founder and CEO Doron Myersdorf told AFP that a product compatible with all makes of smartphone should be on the market by 2016.

He said that at the core of the new technology was the use of peptides, compounds containing amino acids.

"We are modifying the surface of the electrodes with bio-organic compounds, peptides, to increase the chemical reaction to produce extra energy," he said.

"It allows us to avoid the most annoying aspect of our smartphones, of which we are demanding more and more, and to ensure that we have a charged telephone all day," he said.

A video of the prototype was posted on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DhJZAhjbcI).

StoreDot has not received capital from global smartphone market leaders Apple or Samsung but is getting backing from a Chinese manufacturer, Myersdorf said, without naming the investor.

How electrodes charge and discharge
Boston MA (SPX) Apr 04, 2014
The electrochemical reactions inside the porous electrodes of batteries and fuel cells have been described by theorists, but never measured directly. Now, a team at MIT has figured out a way to measure the fundamental charge transfer rate - finding some significant surprises. The study found that the Butler-Volmer (BV) equation, usually used to describe reaction rates in electrodes, is ina ... read more
