There are few things more annoying than having to put your phone on aeroplane mode to conserve battery on your commute, or having to position your bed close enough to a plug so you can blissfully browse and charge your phone before you go to sleep.
Thankfully, it sounds like those days might well be a thing of the past soon.
And by ‘soon’, we mean maybe in the next few years or so, but still, we’ll take it.
Thanks to British start-up firm Zap&Go, those painstaking hours it can sometimes take to charge your phone will be reduced to mere minutes with a brand new battery.
The new batteries, which have the rather cool-sounding name of supercapacitors, can withstand thousands of charges and will power up your devices in no time at all.
Zap&Go have already (kind of) mastered the problem of the electric scooter battery, designing a pack that delivers 12 minutes of staying power after only six minutes of charging, as opposed to the usual six-hour charge time.
OK, we know electric scooters are cool and all, but can we please prioritise the phone-charging tech? We’re not sure we can cope with lying on the wrong side of the bed for much longer.
