And there's the rub. Who has time to sit for an hour to fully recharge your car? On a road trip, I usually travel close to 1,000 kms in one day. Would be great if the restaurant we stop at for lunch or dinner had a charging station, but that is not going to be the case.
I know they are working on new battery tech that will allow them to "super" charge the batteries without the risk of them exploding. Fully charge the battery in 10 minutes. Just enough time to stretch the legs, take a piss and grab some snacks. So in a half dozen years, electric cars will be useful.
