    I enjoy your reports on EV's and the LEAF in particular. You and others continue to refer to charging times of 30 minutes to 8 hours; no one is commenting on the potential of 5 min charges presented in a recent report about JFE Engineering (steeringnews.com/game-changer-jfe-engineering-develops-5-minute-ev-charger) in Japan. Rapid charge technology would seem to be a real game changer; is anyone looking into this further? If not, why?
