Teenage girl invents supercapacitors for super-fast battery charging

May 20, 2013


Teenagers are not expected to excel in mature and serious. It’s okay to have a good time for now. But while your teenage son or daughter is having a good time with all the worldy stuff, some 18-year old is making a difference. Eesha Khare invented a new tech that could instantly charge battery. Batteries are usually charged for a few minutes or hours but this kid’s supercapacitor invention could possibly charge batteries within a few seconds.

Eesha Khare won $50,000 for her invention. Yep, it’s a girl. She joined the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and ended up as one of the winners, together with Henry Lin and Ionut Budisteanu, 17 and 19 years-old respectively. Khare and Lin were partners.

Winning $75,000 was Ionut Budisteanu who received the Gordon E. Moore Award. He developed a new AI model that could someday be used to make a self-driving car.

The supercapacitor is said to have the ability to charge batteries within seconds only. If the charging system becomes a reality, expect these super fast chargers to be available and sold out soon.
