While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    A Two-Minute Full EV Charge?

    This Company May Have Solved the Electric Car Charging Problem; Sometimes design thinking can solve engineering problems

    Brady Dale, April 25, 2016 (UK Observer)

    “…[The new solution for electric car charging from TankTwo can fully charge a car in minutes rather than hours…[T]he batteries are not especially different in terms of how much juice they can hold per square inch…[because TankTwo] didn’t solve the problem with engineering so much as with design…[Its] “string batteries” look like little eggs, with a bunch of contact surfaces…[They each have “brains” that allow] the batteries to determine how to best route the power in and out…[E]lectric cars could still be powered using a plug-in, which would still take as long as it takes any other car to charge, normally…[but] if a car needs a charge quickly, it can roll up to a station equipped to service TankTwo systems, suck out all the string batteries and then replace them with fully charged ones in under three minutes…[The] batteries don’t need to be wired together. They just need to be touching and their internal processors sort it out…The company promises the batteries will cost less to consumers…[and will] stay usable longer, lowering the replacement cost for [an EV’s] most expensive part…” click here for more
