Imagine being able to charge your phone in 20 seconds.  Or having a battery that can survive 10,000 charges compared to today's 1,000 charges per battery.

This is all a reality now because of 18 year old Eesha Khare, a high school student in Saratoga, CA.  She created her invention because her cell phone was always losing charge.  So Eesha created a supercapacitator which is incredibly small, fast charging, and as she says, "It is also flexible, so it can be used in rollup displays and clothing and fabric."

Her invention earned her the "Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award" and $50,000.

 



And that's what's good,
