    Default 18-year-old Nerd Goddess will solve one of your key Smart Phone Issues

    Battery power and charging. Doc Brown would be so proud.

    Eesha Khare won a $50,000 prize for her demo of a supercapacitor (battery) making an LED light up. Her supercapacitor charges in 20 seconds. Imagine having your phone battery completely recharged in a couple of minutes or less.

    Her supercapacitor also has 10,000 charge cycles, instead of the usual 1,000. Doing that math, that would mean your phone battery would last 27 years instead of just under 3.

    She explains her project in her wonderfully enthusiastic and rapid-fire way.

    If could have just one of her brain cells in my oldest kid, my stress level would go down.

    Good for her!! It is so awesome when a kid or young person comes up with a great idea. Not only do we gain the use of a great new product, it can change that persons life. When will this be on the market??

    As soon as some company steals the idea from her.

    I hope she gets the patent and reaps the benefits from her idea.
