Electric car can charge four times faster than previous models

Electric vehicles can now be charged faster than an iPhone—reducing what previously took four hours down to less than one hour.
This new fast-charging technology was developed by ABB, an energy engineering company, at N.C. State.
Ewan Pritchard, a professor from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at N.C. State, demonstrated how the fast charger worked on a Nissan Leaf.
“When the charger was originally installed last year, it was the first one on the east coast,” Pritchard said. “What this does is it puts direct current straight into the batteries at 500 volts. So, by doing a very high current and high voltage, it allows the electrons to get in very quickly.”
