Whiz Kid Invents 20-Second Phone Charge Method

Eesha Khare, a whiz kid from Saratoga, California invented a 20-second method of charging your cell phone. This method was part of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in which she participated and won the 1st Prize which was $50,000.

Who hasn’t been exasperated by the half hour wait for a cell phone to recharge? Well, the wait is over thanks in no small part to a new invention by a whiz kid. Eesha Khare who is barely 18 years old, won 1st Prize at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair held in Phoenix, Arizona for a project which just might solve the mobile phone energizing problem once and for all.

According to CNN, this youthful girl made an electronic capacitor that can be fully charged in 20 to 30 seconds. The specific qualities of this device are that it can hold a lot of energy for a long time. Also there is the fact that it can be charged and recharged in the blink of an eye. Ask Eesha Khare and she will tell you that it has a load and reload capacity of 10,000 cycles as opposed to the puny 1000 cycles of a normal battery.

The inventor won $50,000 with which she plans to go to Harvard on a scholarship and in her own words “set the world on fire.” The journey began when she faced issues with recharging her mobile device. So she started tinkering around and working with nanotechnology and super-capacitors. She has also powered a light emitting diode with the help of a super-capacitor. Eesha sees the future as literally bright indeed. She wants her invention to go on and free the mobile phone technology of the world from over-reliance on electrical power outlets. This is a worthy goal indeed. Furthermore, she says that her device is versatile and may be used in conjunction with anything from flexible screens to clothing items. In other words, it has many applications.
The power of the youth of the global village we inhabit today is a very potent source of new inventions and discoveries in science, art and literature. With fresh talent arising from the ashes of the old and by now defunct thoughts and methods of the past there is hope for the future as a time of surplus and plenty. And as long as creative and skilled people like Eesha keep experimenting and inventing new stuff the innovative light of the world will never get extinguished no matter what.
