An Israeli startup named StoreDot claims to have developed a technique to charge a mobile phone in just 30 seconds.

StoreDot has revealed a prototype of its charging device, showing it charging a handset in a matter of seconds. 

Watch the video below: 

StoreDot, which emerged at Tel Aviv University from research into Alzheimer's discovered crystals occurring in nature two nanometers in diameter that show interesting properties.

The crystals are short chains of amino acids called peptides, can store a charge or emit light, are easy and cheap to make, and are non-toxic, the company claims.

The firm is working on using the crystals, which it calls NanoDots, for displays and semiconductors as well as batteries.

The Israeli firm aims to play a pivotal role in shaping next-generation mobile device components by applying unique technology that is based on natural processes and materials which are cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly.

StoreDot’s focus is to replace current mobile device technology with components that are of superior performance, cost-effective, energy-efficient and sustainable.

StoreDot innovative bio-inspired nanotechnology, by changing the rules of device capabilities, has the potential to disrupt multiple industries such as energy and memory storage; semiconductors; computer monitors; imaging and bio-medical sensors; bio- labeling for the food industry and more.
