The current era is witnessing rapid technological innovation. Have you ever imagined that your phone can be charged fully in just one minute? It may soon become a reality.

Ankur Gupta along with his team has developed a groundbreaking technology highlighted in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

This technology boasts the capability to charge a dead laptop or phone within a minute, or an electric car within 10 minutes, as per claims.

Gupta, an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, sees this breakthrough as a gateway to more efficient energy storage devices like 'supercapacitors'.

The significance of this discovery extends beyond personal devices to power grids, ensuring efficient storage during low-demand periods and rapid delivery during high-demand periods.

Relying on ion collection in their pores, Supercapacitors offer swift charging times and longer lifespans compared to traditional batteries.

The key advantage of supercapacitors lies in their speed, providing a crucial edge in energy storage technology.

Recent advancements allow for the simulation and prediction of ion flow within intricate networks of interconnected pores in a matter of minutes.

This breakthrough promises to revolutionise energy storage solutions, impacting various sectors from consumer electronics to grid management.

The research opens doors to faster, more reliable energy storage technologies, ushering in a new era of efficiency and sustainability.
