StoreDot Ltd, an Israeli startup, has unleashed what it says is an innovative battery that can charge smartphones and other devices in just 30 seconds. The company, which specializes in technology that is inspired by natural processes, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly, has demonstrated the prototype of its ultra-fast-charge battery.

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.

StoreDot's battery technology

These multifunctional nanodots are chemically synthesised 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.

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 are heavy metal based, like cadmium, and, therefore, toxic, StoreDot nanodots are biocompatible and superior to all previous discoveries in this field, the company stated.

The technology will allow StoreDot to synthesise new nanomaterials that can be used in a variety of applications.

Manufacturing Nanodots is also relatively inexpensive as they originate naturally, and utilise 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.
