An Israeli startup StoreDot on 8 April 2014 developed a new smart phone battery called Nanodots. The new battery can recharge a smart phone in just 30 seconds. The firm demonstrated the battery Nanodots at the Microsoft's Think Next symposium in Tel Aviv, Israel.


The Nanodots batteries are made of naturally occurring crystals made of short chain of amino acids called peptides. These are two nanometers in diameter with significant chemical properties. These are:

  • Due to their small size they can help improve electrode capacitance and electrolyte performance.
  • It can fully charge a dead battery of a smart phone in seconds rather than hours.
  • These are environment friendly and non-toxic as compared to other Nanodot and quantum-dot technologies that are heavy metal based.
  • These batteries are cheap to manufacture because nanodots are naturally abundant, and it employs a basic biological mechanism of self-assembly.

In essence, Nanodots are a new generation of electrodes with new materials called Multi Function Electrode

Although the battery demonstrated is the size of a small brick, but the company has announced to develop the device small enough to pack into a standard smartphone by 2016.

The advance could change the way we interact with portable electronics, and perhaps even help realise the dream of a fast-charging electric car.
