18 Year-Old Eesha Khare Invents Device that Charges Cell Phones in 30 Seconds
18 Year-Old Eesha Khare grew tired of her cell phone losing power so quickly.
So this brilliant young lady invented a device that charges phones in 20-30 seconds max!
Creating the supercapacitor solved Khare’s issue and also piqued her interest in “really working at the nanoscale to make significant advances in many different fields.”
The high school senior is headed to Harvard University in the fall and she’s toting her invention with her. The supercapacitator received a huge boost at the 2013 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair where Khare won the Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award. She was awarded $50,000 – sure to come in handy at Harvard – and a chance to showcase her invention to potential investors.
Khare hopes her creation will “set the world on fire,” eventually having enough energy to power automobiles.
This young lady is destined for very big things. Good luck at Harvard, Eesha!
