New player claims technology leap in electric vehicle charging

What they’re saying: “There is no doubt that one could definitely do better than the standard CCCV charging protocol through some of these more exotic charging protocols, but the question is how much better could you do,” says Venkat Viswanathan, an engineering professor at Carnegie Mellon University.

He says the speed they are claiming seems possible.
“The main question is whether you can do that without degrading the battery pack,” Viswanatha adds. “If GBatteries has accomplished that, it is certainly a very interesting accomplishment.”
