This charger uses nanotechnology to fully charge your battery in less than a minute
Even in our wildest dreams we have not imagined that we could charge our smartphones to 100% for under a minute. Yet, thanks to nanotechnology, this might become reality very, very soon. StoreDot, an Israeli company, demonstrated a new battery charger at Microsoft's Think Next event. In a video demo, it charges a Samsung Galaxy S III's battery from 27% to 100% in exactly 29 seconds!

StoreDot's charger makes use of the so-called Nanodots – these are bio-organic nanocrystals with superior energy storage capabilities. Speedy battery charging is just one amount the multiple uses of the Nanodots, as the unique characteristics of the biological semiconductors make them perfect for flexible displays, data storage, and imaging sensors.

The existing prototypes are the size of a regular laptop charger, but it is stated that the company is working on decreasing the overall size of the nifty accessory. However, StoreDot is not ready to release a Nanodot charger yet, and the gizmo is planned to go into mass-production in late 2016.

Without further ado, you can watch StoreDot's demonstration video below.

Combine this with those supposed graphine batteries that they're trying to make and battery life will become an issue of the past.. In 2014.. Ha do you remember when computers had 8MB of RAM? In 2030.. Ha do you remember when we had to charge our phones every day and ALL night? Pretty useful in electric cars too if you could charge the cells this quickly?

So, what's wrong with charging it through the night? it's not that useful, I'm sure making the battery last longer (between charges) and make it live longer would be much more useful

Say goodbye to charging your phone through the night! Just plug it in when you wake up, and have it ready when you leave! Really love the idea!

They have to turn that big black box on the back of the phone into a small charger compatible with microUSB

I guess in 2 years, they can make it safe. But well... Buying a cheap crappy chinese charger when this technology is available will be a suicide for sure.
