In this technologically advanced world, every smartphone user is expecting that their screen shines brighter, connects at 4G speed, and runs faster but with the battery that would not drain so quickly. The thirst for powerful battery in smart phones and tablets has urged the mobile brands to come up with the long lasting batteries.
Interestingly, in this regard, a Young Pakistani entrepreneur Abdullah Somroo realized this genuine problem and after working around the clock he invented the power bank which charges in just 14 minutes. Mr. Somroo, who is a mechanical engineer, by training validated the innovative ideas with his university professors. The government of Chili also gave him US$35,000 as seed capital, and he also spent six months in the country along with his co-founder.
Pakistani Invents Power Bank that Charges Smartphone in 14 minutes
According to the young entrepreneur, he adopted this idea from hybrid-cars that have fastest electric charging procedure as compared to the traditional batteries. He further claimed that:
“And that’s the fundamental problem with power banks. If you have to charge them with the same speed that you’re charging your phone, what’s the point. With Flashpack, users don’t even need to plug their phones into their wall chargers anymore.”
As we all know that Pakistan has already won three gold medals at the regional tech award, the aim of Abdullah is further giving boast to the technology world in Pakistan. The innovation of Abdullah is to simply make life easier for the people as he said that:
“The idea is to simplify your life. If you’re traveling, or constantly on the go, we don’t want you to carry a bunch of chargers – one for every different device you own. Just take this one and have peace of mind.”
Abdullah aims to develop more power banks with the 5,000 mAH variant which will retail as cheaply as US$70. The future of Pakistan is bright if enthusiastic candidates like Abdullah come forward and contribute to the progress of our country.
