Ahmad was walking near campus a few years ago when a homeless man asked her for money. She bought him lunch instead. The meeting left a deep impact, so she soon devised, along with classmate Chloe Tsang, a way to get campus food waste onto the plates of local people who were going hungry . Her initiative sparked food waste “forwarding” programs on other campuses and inspired an app that has fed almost 600,000 people in the San Francisco Bay area alone.

By far, the “coolest” new feature is the liquid-based cooling system, which keeps the Supercharger’s temperature close to ambient, up to and including the charging cable itself. The previous versions were air-cooled, but the chillier liquid model allows the Supercharger to be smaller, lighter, and possibly produce a faster charge.
