Comments on Quick-Charging Batteries Needed For Vehicles
3D films made by coating a surface with self-assembled nanoscale spheres may hold the answer to fast 'fill-ups' at vehicle recharging stations. (Read
the complete story)
|"I wonder if anyone is working on the other side of this process, a power cable capable of handling 2 MW of energy transfer that can be lifted and handled by a human. If the batteries can hold 200-300 KWHours, recharging them in 10 minutes will be nearly 2 MW. I like this research, it bodes well for the future of the all electric vehicle."

|"I'm not so sure that fast charging batteries are the way to go. Why not do an automated battery swap at a vehicle recharging station? Batteries and cars would have to be standardised, but there's no problem there..."

|"Batteries are cute, but they have intrinsic problems with electrolytes and their component materials. eeStor has/had a novel approach, but the company has gone black, though they have contracts with Lockheed Martin. Zenn Motors is hanging onto the concept, as did (once upon a time) Tesla Motors. Based upon the Barium Titanate dielectric, there is promise, but the problem is in buffering the BaT and getting uniform grain size."
