Even if you don’t drive an electric car, you are probably aware of the way these vehicles are charged. Depending on the car (how modern it is) and the charging station (which electricity options and ports it has), topping up a battery may take some time – from 15 minutes to a few hours. Since gasoline car owners may regard a charging station that no one is using as a free car park, conflicts are inevitable.

Toshiba has a solution for long road trips conducted on an electric car

Electric cars, scooters and bicycles are here already, but conducting a long road trip on a fully electric car has a problem: range. For instance, manufacturers of compact electric cars may specify a 200 mile / 350 km range for their vehicles, but in reality, the range can be one-fourth or one-third shorter than that. Toshiba’s solution to the problem is the SCIB vehicle battery that fully charges in six minutes.
