Israeli start-up StoreDot charges smartphones in 30 seconds and laptop in just minutes

Dr. Doron Myersdorf, founder and  CEO of nanotechnology driven Israeli start-up StoreDot, took the wraps  off the prototype model of his new and certainly revolutionary charging device at Microsoft’s Think Next Conference held in Tel Aviv. Dr Myersdorf claims  that his new device will make the tedious process of charging a cell phone  a matter of seconds rather than hours.

According to Dr. Myersdorf,  StoreDot’s Nanodot core technology while not necessarily changing the entire concept of mobile technology will certainly make it a lot more user-friendly, with people on the move being able to rapidly charge their mobile devices almost in real time.

And the good news is that StoreDot batteries will not only be capable of being charged considerably faster than the  current crop of batteries, but they will  be capable of standing up to the stress of  considerably more charging and discharge cycles , making for a considerably prolonged battery life.  That piece of good news will be offset, if only partially by projections that StoreDot batteries will be twice as expensive as those currently available-a fact that will fade into insignificance if Dr. Myersdorf and his development team at StoreDot stand by their promise to provide batteries that will be capable of charging in such record time.

Dr. Myersdorf, established Ramat Gan  based StoreDot in 2012, and received a major boost in power the following year when the company picked up around $6 million in venture capital funding, describing the  investment as not only being important as a source of capital, but also as a vote of confidence in the company’s novel approach towards utilizing synthesized bio-nanomaterials in order to shape the next-generation of mobile devices.

At this stage all that Store Dot  has to show is a prototype model and a fairly bulky one at that. However, this  exciting new product is scheduled to go into  commercial production by the end of 2016- and is looking likely to take a lot of the stress that hundreds of millions of mobile appliance users throughout the world call through almost on a daily basis- making sure that their battery is charged.

Dr. Doron  Myersdorf graduated with a Ph.D. in industrial engineering and management, as well as two other degrees from the Technion, the Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, later going on to study the unusual subject of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, California.

After completing his studies in 1999 Dr.  Myersdorf established his first start-up Siftology which develops content creation enabling solutions for interactive television space. Siftology, in which Dr Myersdorf still has an interest is based in Redwood Shores, California, whilst retaining their research and development operations in Haifa, Israel.

Other cutting-edge management  positions that  Dr.  Myersdorf has held was as the head of marketing and business development at SanDisk SSD division, during which time he was responsible for generating over $100 million in income for the company.  Dr. Myersdorf also acted as corporate Vice President with special responsibility for research and development  for Tefen Management Consulting, during which time he was responsible for the establishment of a corporate presence in the Silicon Valley, prior to founding StoreDot in 2012.
