A teen from Saratoga has invented a super capcitor that can fit in a phone battery which will allow you to charge a phone in 20 to 30 seconds, this tech can be applied to most batteries including car batteries! Google are already on her case trying to no doubt get it for cheap before it goes to market

The device will make waiting hours for a phone to charge a thing of the past and the gizmo packs more energy into a smaller space than traditional phone batteries and holds the charge for longer.
So far, Khare has only used her supercapacitor to power a light-emitting diode or LED - but she sees a bright future that one day will see her invention powering cellphones, cars and any gadget that requires a rechargeable battery.

What an astonishingly short length of time. I'd love for that annoying "always dead when I actually need it" phenomenon to be cured in a matter of nothing.
We all know it's going to go the way of the great Tesla inventions, though. It's simply too good to be allowed by the profit-driven industries. -_-

Side note: Military and Law Enforcement have been using quick charging caps for years. Their main downfall are the short, very short, charge holding time while in constant use. True, they can be recharged in seconds, but they don't do well during constant use. They just don't have the total capacity vs a battery with constant use. A cell phone would need to be charged every 15 mins at best...while idle.

Better off with an hour or two of charging time that'll last more than a day vs charging it 3 - 4 times per hour... And that is just standby time. With the cap, you'll need to recharge after every call or after every forum post.

A for effort, but F on realistic implementations that the masses will accept.
