18 Years Old Student Invents a Device to Charge Cell Phone in 20 Seconds

Have you Ever thought of fully charging your mobile phone with-in 20 seconds? If yes – then your wishes are going to meet reality very soon.

An Indian American girl, who is just 18 years old, has invented a super-capacitor device that could potentially charge a cellphone in less than 20 seconds.

Eesha Khare from Saratoga in California has developed this tiny device that fits inside mobile phone batteries that could allow them to charge within 20-30 seconds. This tiny device — that can pack a lot of energy into a tiny space — can keep powering cellphone for even longer duration than the conventional batteries.

Eesha demoed this tiny so-called super capacitor this week at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, and for which she won a prize of USD 50,000.

Eesha’s invention has already attracted Google’s attention, along with various other tech companies who have been trying for long for such a rapid-charging solution.

According to the Eesha, her device can last for 10,000 charge-recharge cycles, compared to 1,000 cycles for conventional rechargeable batteries.

The gadget has, so far, only been tested on an LED light, but the good news is that it has a good chance of working successfully in other devices, like mobile phones, expert say.

“It is also flexible, so it can be used in rollup displays and clothing and fabric. It has a lot of different applications and advantages over batteries in that sense,” she added.


  • Please sell this Product around the wold with the name of made in pakistan . let pakistan earn money don’t give technology any country

  • She is an American. The word America means diversity. India has nothing to do with her. I am just thinking aloud.
    Her invention is too good to be true. But actually, it is true. I cant judge the practical applications of this device but i do not think there will be a problem.

    • Hey pal, shes got indian brains!!….not american :) btw..i dont live in india either..but tht doesnt mean we r not indians.

    • Check the release again please. It says:

      Two Intel Foundation Young Scientist Awards winners – Eesha Khare of Saratoga, Calif. and Henry Lin of Shreveport, La. – each received prizes of $50,000 from the Intel Foundation.

    • If it existed since 2010 then why on earth has it not been used in charging devices? This would either be the biggest invention of modern era or the biggest blunder!

      • For the same reason wireless electricity has been “invented” over 100 years ago by Tesla but isn’t used for anything but charging phones or other small devices today. There are operational & design flaws.

  • that super capacitor has been discovered by a british scientist he even used the term charging in 5 seconds and that element is graphene i think and you guys can see his video on youtube but hey guys where the heck this lady gets the credit…???? any body???? is this another drama from indians

  • She invented a super capacitor which can hold enough charge to light a led for few seconds. This technology can be used in mobile phone by replacing battery with super capacitor .The advantage over battery is that super capacitor can be charged very fast. But its not going to happen any time soon. it will take around 5 to 10 years . Title is misleading.

  • When u got the aim ” To work for the Humanity not for cast country bounded ” but for all you will got great ideas and power of implementation … We will bring true revolutions not by words but by our hard work and ideas… True Pakistani Thinkings
