A California teen has attracted the attention of tech giants Google for her potentially revolutionary invention which charges a phone in 20 seconds flat.

The super-fast charging device has been dubbed a super capacitor by 18-year-old Esha Khare, of Saratoga - as she took home $50,000 from the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, which took place in Phoenix this week.
 
The device will make waiting hours for a phone to charge a thing of the past and the gizmo packs more energy into a smaller space than traditional phone batteries and holds the charge for longer.'My cellphone battery always dies,' she told NBC News when asked what inspired her to work on the energy-storage technology.
 
Specializing in nanochemistry allowed Khare to reduve the size of her invention. 'Really working at the nanoscale to make significant advances in many different fields.'

'It is also flexible, so it can be used in rollup displays and clothing and fabric,' Khare added. 

'It has a lot of different applications and advantages over batteries in that sense.'

The supercapacitor is flexible and tiny, and is able to handle 10,000 recharge cycles, more than normal batteries by a factor of 10.
 
How an 18-year-old girl has managed to figure out something that multi-national corporations have not has led to her being flooded with offers for her amazing leap forward.
