She was awarded the Young Scientist Award by the Intel Foundation after developing the tiny device that fits inside mobile phone batteries, and could allow them to charge within 20-30 seconds.

According to Khare, her device can last for 10,000 charge-recharge cycles, compared with 1,000 cycles for conventional rechargeable batteries.The so-called super-capacitor , a gizmo that can pack a lot of energy into a tiny space, charges quickly and holds its charge for a long time.
