Startup Ample Is Working on 10-Minute Battery Swapping for Electric Ve

Startup Ample Is Working on 10-Minute Battery Swapping for Electric Vehicles
Swapping depleted battery modules for new ones can fully charge an electric vehicle in 10 minutes, as long as the vehicle is built to use Ample's own batteries.

Silicon Valley startup Ample is testing out a few battery swapping stations in California's Bay Area for fleet drivers.
The company says that its stations can swap out a vehicle's specially built battery modules and packs in 10 minutes.
Ample says that it's working with five automakers, without saying which ones, to build vehicles with battery structures that work with the company's battery-swapping stations.

With all the sturm und drang surrounding Tesla, .... all of the many things they can be legitimately strongly praised for, and some things they can be legitimately criticized for, their approach to their swapping effort (and in my opinion, their disingenuousness about it) is one of the most criticizeable, though I haven't heard a single other person say it.

I don't know how many American drivers will be into swapping, but I do know that for years I noted to others that the topic was not quite gone (particular since it was kept alive by at least a couple of Chinese companies) and here we are and we're going to find out more about whether and how many drivers might want to try it.  It will be interesting to find out more, in my view.
