I was wondering what people thought of a 'battery changeing station' Lets say GM builds an electric vehicle with a battery that can easily be removed and replaced with one that has been charging for however long it takes.

As I understand this changing the output power drastically will not drastically change the radius. So I dont see a polywell fitting on a train or truck...
"...forecast that we're going to be hitting $12 and $15 per gallon,” And i'll riot in the streets... But seriously, i could see this happening in the next few decades (years?) as oil supplies run low and the dollar continues to weaken.
