+ - EV fast charging standards in flux->

Submitted by savuporo
savuporo writes: With the first battery electric vehicles becoming available on markets worldwide, there is an increased push to establish standards for fast charging plugs. Unfortunately, the story is far from simple. US hopes to establish its own DC fast charging standad by 2012, and Europe cannot come to an agreement about their version. Meanwhile, CHAdeMO fast charge standard developed and widely deployed in Japan, used on both Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi MiEV is gaining momentum with deployments underway both in US and Europe. CHAdeMO is limited to 62Kw charge rate, able to charge smaller battery packs to 80% SoC in 15-30 minutes.
