Battery life for mobile devices has dramatically improved with countless innovations over the years (including a big reduction in cost) but our need for energy seems to be insatiable -- countless innovations have changed apps as well: more apps, bigger apps, more complex apps and much higher power requirements.
Now, a Harvard student, Eesha Khare, has developed a small, "super battery" (called a Super Capacitor Energy Storage Device) capable of storing dramatically more energy and recharging a mobile device much quicker. In fact, she doesn't want to sell her technology until she can charge a mobile device in less than a minute. I can't wait!
This new technology uses nanotechnology to charge a mobile device quickly and hold that energy energy for a much longer period of time. It is manufctured from carbon fiber and metal oxides.
