This won’t be the last time you hear of Eesha KHARE, the eighteen-year-old American of Indian origin, who has just created a new system to store a great amount of energy by offering the ability to recharge a cellphone in 20 seconds (as opposed to the several hours that are usually required today).
Though this is still a prototype, the device created by this little genius with an angel’s face, could support up to 10,000 charge cycles, which is 10 times the life-span of the current batteries.
“I have created a new super capacitor which is in reality a storage space that can hold a lot of energy in a tiny space,”, announced the winner of Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award 2013‘s third prize of $50,000.
If I had a daughter, I’d force her to invent a battery that NEVER requires charging…. I mean seriously….#hatersaregonnahate
