Refueling electric cars in seconds! Is that possible?

Refueling electric cars in seconds! Is that possible?

At the University of Scotland a team of scientists have developed a liquid battery which can charge electric cars in minutes.
The scientist use an ‘exotic rust’, a metal oxide that can be charged when added to water. Now it can take hours to charge an electric car. This new liquid battery could be the way to get rid of fossil fuel cars.

The same infrastructure for 'rust liquid' as for petrol

The nice thing of this new technique is that refuelling your liquid battery goes the same way as fuelling fossil fuel cars. So no different behaviour is needed at the fuel station. Of course the proto type still has to be scaled but if it works it will be a game changer!
At the pump station you need nozzle to withdrawal the spent ‘rust liquid’ where after you need another nozzle to refill the battery with fresh liquid. The range of the liquid would be the same as the conventional fuel.

Making the liquid is not so difficult at the moment but scaling up the process is still a challenge. A prototype is upscaled already and is working according plan. Another advantage is that we still can use the existing infrastructure of fuel stations. There even could be a transition time where petrol and liquid battery are both used for a while at the 'fuel station' where after hopefully ‘rust liquid will take over.
