An Indian-American teenager has captivated the attention of tech giants Google for her possible groundbreaking invention which charges a mobile phone in 20 seconds fixed. The super-fast charging device is actually dubbed a super-capacitor by 18 year old Eesha Khare, of Saratoga, as she took home $50,000 from the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix.
The device can certainly make waiting hours for mobile phone to charge a thing of the past along with the gizmo packs more energy into a lesser space compared to conventional phone batteries and takes the charge for more time. The super-capacitor is elastic and small , and is capable to manage 10,000 recharge cycles, a lot more than regular batteries by a factor of 10.
Until now, Khare has only utilized her super-capacitor to power a light-emitting diode (LED), however she views a bright future that one day will see her device powering mobile phones, cars as well as any gadget that needs a rechargeable battery.
Proceeding to Harvard, Khare told CBS San Francisco that this is simply the beginning which she will 'be setting the world on fire' from here. When NBC News questioned what motivated her to work with the energy-storage technology. 'My cell phone battery always dies', she told NBC News.
Devoted to nanochemistry able Khare to reduce the size of her invention. 'Really working at the nanoscale to make significant advances in many different fields.'
