That Was Quick: New 30-Second Cell Phone Charger

A new tech start-up claims they've developed a cell phone charger that can fully charge a phone in 30-seconds. For reference, that is 29-seconds slower than the cell phone charger I'm developing with the help of alien technology. "GW? Why is there a curly phone cord poking out of your butt?" Relax, it's all part of the process.

StoreDot was born out of the nanotechnology department at Tel Aviv University and developed its prototype for Samsung's Galaxy 4. It unveiled the device at Microsoft's Think Next conference in Tel Aviv. StoreDot says it plans to make chargers for other smartphones, too.


StoreDot has been developing biological semiconductors, made from naturally occurring organic compounds called peptides, or short chains of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. The technology can be used, among other things, to speed charging times, the company says.

Heck yeah, phones are gonna be exploding left and right. You wanna charge your phone quickly? Here's what you do: okay, I don't actually know. I heard turning it off or in airplane mode helps though. Or you can get a pager and only have to replace the batteries once every couple months. Technology is cyclical, remember -- pagers are gonna make a comeback. *click click click click* Did you hear that? That was the sound of a million hipsters hitting eBay to be the first of their friends to get one.

Keep going for a video demo, but turn the volume down because for some reason the audio is all interference. Not a good sign for a tech company claiming they can charge a phone in 30-seconds.

Thanks to Thaylor H, who uses the old 'two soup cans and a taut string' method of telecommunication and never has to charge a battery. Heck yeah, call my treehouse!
