According to WSJ.com, 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 Samsung’s Galaxy 4, Store Dot says it plans to make chargers for other smartphones, too. According to WSJ.com, 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.
