Nanodots facilitate half-a-minute battery charging

StoreDot Ltd. has engineered a battery that is capable of charging mobile devices in as fast as 30 seconds, the prototype of which was demonstrated at Microsoft's Think Next symposium in Tel Aviv.

The battery is based on the company-developed "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.

These multi-functional 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 currently in use are heavy metal based, like cadmium, and, therefore, toxic, StoreDot nanodots are biocompatible and superior to all previous discoveries in this field. The technology will allow the company to synthesise new nanomaterials that can be used in a wide 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.

"The fast-charge battery is the result of our focus on commercializing the materials we have discovered. We're particularly pleased that this innovative nanotechnology, inspired by nature, not only changes the rules of mobile device capabilities, but is also environmentally-friendly," said Dr. Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot.
