According to, a A Tel-Aviv based start-up nanotechnology company called StoreDot Ltd. is introducing a prototype charger that promises to recharge a smartphone’s battery in about 30 seconds. (See demo below.) While the prototype was designed for Samsungā€™s Galaxy 4, Store Dot says it plans to make chargers for other smartphones, too. According to, the prototype charger is currently the size of a laptop charger, but the company says it has a parallel engineering effort aimed at reducing its size. The estimated cost will be twice that of an average phone charger, which is up to $30. StoreDot says commercial production in planned for late 2016.
