New technology lets you recharge your smartphone in just 30 seconds

When it comes to unexciting YouTube videos you might think watching a phone charge is up there with drying paint, but not in this case.

The video below shows what could prove to be the future of smartphone charging, with StoreDot, a start-up based out of the Nanotechnology department of Tel Aviv University demonstrating its method of returning a handset to full charge in just 30 seconds.

Having reportedly been shown off at Microsoft’s Think Next conference, the super speedy charger, which makes use of biological semiconductors, is shown returning a Samsung Galaxy S3 from just 2 per cent charge to 100 per cent in little more time than it takes to turn a phone on.

Although StoreDot has claimed the charger would cost just twice the amount of a standard, current charger, you are going to have a wait to make use of such technologies.

The company has revealed that commercially available chargers will not start shipping until the end of 2016 at the earliest.

Until then, and the dramatic advancement of technologies on the move, you’re going to have to make do with charge times of well over an hour and battery lives that struggle to get past a day.
