A Startup Is Building A Device That Could Fully Charge Your Phone In 30 Seconds

Israeli startup StoreDot has built a prototype of a charger that boosts your phone’s battery from dead to fully-charged in 30 seconds.

It demoed the product at a Microsoft conference in Tel Aviv, according to Mashable.

Here’s the video of the prototype in action:
