Standard EV batteries on all Vehicles

Quick fit EV power pack

Standard quick fit battery for all vehicles a smaller quick fit for town use (lighter weight), mixed sizes for longer range.

Battery not purchased with vehicle, lower purchase costs more appealing

Battery supplied from a central system as a fully charged power pack which you charge or exchange as needed. Built in metering extended for energy payments (payments include network distribution, energy costs, and a return of investment for the pack manufacture) similar to mobile phone top ups it releases the paid amount from the installed power pack activated by the authorised user this can allow for small top ups and allow your prepaid energy use in other vehicles, the same tech could help you share power credits with friends.

The Power pack and stored energy is the property of the provider and should have no value or other use. security, encrypted keys, tracking etc. technology is currently available and proven to work would help stop misuse

Implementation ideas listed below

KEY ADVANTAGES: -

No essential need for charging stations only battery swapping points + charging if required

Roadside battery swapping

Mass charging depots near generating stations also allowing off peak power management with possible network insertion to cover national grid peak loads

Removing the need for fast charging points

Removing the concerns regarding battery life span

Removing the initial cost of battery

Managed disposal recycling and reuse of battery materials and components

Constant safety checking

Standard packs help emergency services deal with incidents

familiarity for all users would reduce any risks

Extended life of the vehicle

Faster recovery of stranded vehicles

No congestion at charging stations

Better charging characteristics for the type of battery technology and not trying to achieve fast charging times extending the life span

There are many other advantages to this arrangement and many obstacles to be addressed. It would remove the need for new infrastructure and widen the geographical area for EV’s
