New technology lets you charge cell phone in 30 seconds

Running out of battery halfway through the day and being disconnected all afternoon may soon be a thing of the past.

An Israeli company called StoreDot has created a prototype that can charge a cell phone back to 100 percent in only 30 seconds.

CNN reports that StoreDot's new device will continue charging a phone once it has been unplugged.

A Youtube video shows the device that's slightly bulkier than a smartphone that attaches to the back of the phone. Now, the company is working on creating a version small enough to fit inside the phone instead.

StoreDot hopes to have the prototype ready within the next two years, with a product on the market shortly after that.
