StoreDot's Next Generation Smartphone Battery Fully Charges Your Mobile in Just 30 Seconds!
TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--
Nanotechnology pioneer StoreDot
unveiled today a ground-breaking battery capable of charging your
smartphone and other devices in just 30 seconds.
At Microsoft's (News - Alert) Think Next symposium in Tel Aviv today, StoreDot
demonstrated the prototype of its ultra-fast-charge battery for the
first time. Incredibly, this means smartphone users will be able to
charge their phones in less time than StoreDot needs to explain how this
cutting-edge technology works.
Here's the short version: StoreDot specializes in technology that is
inspired by natural processes, cost-effective and
environmentally-friendly. The company produces "nanodots" derived from
bio-organic material that, due to their size, have both increased
electrode capacitance and electrolyte performance, resulting in
batteries that can be fully charged in minutes rather than hours.
For the more technically-minded, here's how it actually works. Those
multifunctional nanodots are chemially synthesized bio-organic peptide
molecules that change the rules of mobile device capabilities. These
nanocrystals are made from peptides, short chains of amino acids, the
building blocks of proteins. Still with us? Here's comes the really cool
StoreDot's bio-organic devices such as smartphone displays, provide much
more efficient power consumption, and are eco-friendly; while other
nanodot and quantum-dot technologies currently in use are heavy metal
based, like cadmium, and, therefore, toxic, StoreDot nanodots are
biocompatible and superior to all previous discoveries in this field.
StoreDot's technology will allow them to synthesize new nanomaterials
that can be used in a wide variety of applications.
Manufacturing Nanodots is also relatively inexpensive as they originate
naturally, and utilize a basic biological mechanism of self-assembly.
They can be made from a vast range of bio-organic raw materials that are
readily available and environmentally friendly.
Based in Ramat Gan, near Tel Aviv, StoreDot, bio-organic innovators, are
developing and commercializing peptide-based technology based on their
discovery of self-assembled nanodots of biological origin.
"The fast-charge battery is the result of our focus on commercializing
the materials we have discovered. We're particularly pleased that this
innovative nanotechnology, inspired by nature, not only changes the
rules of mobile device capabilities, but is also
environmentally-friendly," said Dr. Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot.
StoreDot Ltd. is a privately owned nanotechnology startup, incorporated
in Israel in 2012, which develops technologies that apply bio-organic
Nanodots to mobile displays and energy storage devices. Additional
target products of StoreDot technology include flash memory, image
sensors and semiconductor materials. StoreDot Ltd. has received funding
headed by Kenges Rakishev and Moshiko Hogeg.
