super capacitor charge in 20 seconds

Today we are going to tell one story of an Indian student who made our country proud. Instead of writing about her invention, I personally want to congratulate her for taking our country name to ‘ Intel International Science and Engineering Fair’ held in the US. Ladies and Gentle men she is Eesha Khare – 18-year-old Indian-American teen who has invented an earth breaking super-capacitor device concept that could potentially charge every Smartphones in less than 20 seconds. For this invention she was awarded “Young Scientist Award” by the Intel Foundation. She has been awarded a USD 50,000 as a reward for the invention. The next good news is that her tiny device has attracted the attention of Google and the tech giant is ready to bid for her future research.

According to Khare, the super capacitor device can  withstand 10,000 charge-recharge cycles. Please note that our conventional rechargeable batteries will start gasping after 1,000 cycles.

“My cell phone battery always dies,” her simple answer about the inspiration for the research on the energy-storage technology. This super-capacitors turned her focus to nano chemistry and she wants to bring more work to the advancements in different fields. Right now, the Super capacitor gadget has successfully tested on LED light. It has a fair chance to work with other gadgets like Smartphones, tablets and laptops. So at the moment we are far from the charger of our dreams, but its potential is so high because it has aroused the interest of Google and they already contacted the girl. Google has been already behind new inventions. We have seen many examples like Google Glasses, Google Smartwatch (Not released), Google Shoes etc. Can Eesha khare create another history by her invention with Google? My answer is a big YES! What do you think?


The gadget has so far only been tested on an LED light, but the good news is that it has a good chance of working successfully in other devices, like mobile phones, the report said.

Khare sees it fitting inside cellphones and the other portable electronic devices proliferating in today’s world.

“It is also flexible, so it can be used in rollup displays and clothing and fabric. It has a lot of different applications and advantages over batteries in that sense,” Khare added.

The student has demonstrated the operation of your device providing power to an LED, so at the moment we are far from the charger of our dreams, but its potential is so high that seem to have aroused the interest of Google , which would have already contacted the girl. What is certain is that if a student aged 18 where he could multinationals across the world have failed so far, it would be a considerable setback for everyone, including us, that sometimes we have to jump through hoops to get to evening with a single battery charge.
