An Israeli startup has said it was working to develop a bio-organic system that can recharge a smartphone battery in just 30 seconds.

Tel Aviv-based StoreDot’s prototype battery and charger is currently being tested with Samsung’s Galaxy phones, but the startup’s founder and CEO Doron Myersdorf told AFP that a product compatible with all makes of smartphone should be on the market by 2016.

He said that at the core of the new technology was the use of peptides, compounds containing amino acids.

“We are modifying the surface of the electrodes with bio-organic compounds, peptides, to increase the chemical reaction to produce extra energy,” he said.

“It allows us to avoid the most annoying aspect of our smartphones, of which we are demanding more and more, and to ensure that we have a charged telephone all day,” he said.

As it stands, the company’s technology is still limited, however.

The prototype tested on the Samsung device was much larger than the battery normally used in the phone, but had a lower power capacity.

The company hopes to be able to overcome these issues within the next year, however.

StoreDot has not received capital from global smartphone market leaders Apple or Samsung but is getting backing from a Chinese manufacturer, Myersdorf said, without naming the investor
