JFE Engineering Create 5 Minute Electric Car Charger

JFE Engineering have debuted a new battery charging technology capable of recharging electric cars in a matter of minutes rather than a number of hours as is currently the norm. The charger allows a car to be 50% recharged in just 3 minutes, about 10 times faster than current capabilities. A 70% charge reportedly takes just 5 minutes, roughly the amount of time the average person spends buying gasoline at a standard service station.

The JFE rechargers are fully compatible with the CHAdeMo standard for electric cars that was agreed upon by a number of Japanese and International companies in March this year and JFE expects to have them installed at service stations and convenience stores across Japan by March 2011. Is this the big break electric vehicles have been waiting for? Time will tell.
