A battery that can charge in under 30 seconds has been shown off at a technology conference in Tel Aviv.
Israeli start-up StoreDot displayed the device – made of biological structures – at Microsoft’s Think Next Conference.
A Samsung S4 smartphone went from a dead battery to full power in 26 seconds in the demonstration.
The batteries are likely to be 30 to 40% more expensive to manufacture compared to traditional ones and the final product will be twice as expensive than those on the market today.
The battery is currently only a prototype and the firm predicts it will take three years to become a commercially viable product.
