Eesha Khare, who is only 18 years old, just created the device of our dreams.

It’s a tiny a gadget that fits inside cell phone batteries, and allows them to fully charge within 20- to 30 seconds. Typically, it takes several hours to get a full charge. 

We first saw the news over on SF Gate.

Khare demoed her “super-capacitor” last Friday at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. The 18-year-old genius from Saratoga, Calif. walked away with a $50,000 prize for the energy storage device that can last for 10,000 charge cycles. Compare that to standard batteries, which are typically only good for 1,000 cycles. 

“With this money I will be able to pay for my college and also work on making scientific advancements,” Khare told the audience after receiving the prize.
