Teen's invention could charge your phone in 20 seconds

NBC News- Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student's invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds. (Gadgets)

I really hope this innovative idea of her's isn't buried. There's a lot of potential in this If she can manage to avoid being bought out.

The world needs more peoples like her. ^_~

They will do what they all do, buy -> patent it -> seal it away for some god unknown time.

hopefully she patented the stuff, because if not she wont get any money from now on.

why dont cell companys have this stuff? makes sense that they would have this in order to make people buy their phones. battery tech companys have no reason to try and hide this tech really. the only type of batterys people rebuy are the AA, AAA, and similiar type batterys. as far as pc,cell phone, handheld and such people dont buy multiple batterys for those or at least i never dide. so battery tech companys need to get on this now.

They make way too much money from replacement batteries.

Money, that is all. Major companies always buy smaller companies that have made a break threw in something and seal their findings. Look at medicine companies, they waste money on a lot of research projects that help them sell more. That's Y you see a lot of stories each month contradicting each other on whats healthy and whats not.

Apple...grab this invention if you want to make comeback :)

Yea right. They'd probably sue her for stealing the idea they were thinking of thinking up.

Nice invention, till some crappy company buys it and sells it us for $300

I'm pretty sure a lot of car companies investing in battery tech on their EV/Hybrid automobiles would want to make this on a bigger scale.

Guess she was inspired by iron man movies

Truth is in fiction! Sooner or later the tech will catch up and someone's going to try and make a real life suit of amour.
