Innovation Watch: 60-Second Phone Charger

If there’s anything else you’d want your smartphone could do, what would it be? Download actual food? Cough out real money?


How about having a battery that charges in just about 60 seconds?

While the drawback is that aluminum battery produces just half of the voltage of a lithium-ion battery – remember, this is still the initial stage of the discovery. And definitely, more improvements are to follow.

As they say, just ‘count your blessings’!

It’s bendable. Nonflammable. Eco-friendly. And compared to the average lithium-ion battery which only lasts 1,000 cycles, this aluminum battery lasts 7,500 charge cycles without losing any capacity.

Cool, right?!

So, hopefully, its only drawback would be corrected sooner than we think.
