    If you do a bit background checking you'll find that the story is mostly hype. There's a number of researchers looking into super capacitors, and indeed the specific chemistry the teen girl Eesha Khare has been looking into. While she has done some interesting research in the area (especially for someone her age), the claims made in relation to charging a phone in 20 secs are just media 'extrapolation'. All she's saying is that 'one day' we may be able to charge cell phones quickly using a super capacitor, but not in the foreseeable future.

    So, much like cold fusion power, much ado about nothing.
