    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
