Battery Fueling Claims to Have Invented a Breakthrough 4-Minute Battery Recharging System

How Does it Work?  It Doesn't

How Does it Work? It Doesn’t

Forget Tesla’s supercharging.  Why would we ever need that when we can “refuel” an electric vehicle in just 4 minutes using this breakthrough system by Battery Fueling?

Well, once you’ve wrapped your head around this breakthrough tech, then you might end up deciding that supercharging is still the way to go.

So, without further adieu, let’s dive into this game-changing technology, presented below by the mind-blowing technical folks at Battery Fueling:

“The inventions provide a computer-controlled cyclical system that includes a specially manufactured battery dispensing bowser that dispenses a choosable sequential plurality of small volume charged batteries to a specially manufactured battery powered Electric Vehicle. The Battery Fueling method parallels, mimics or improves upon the sequentially metered manner by which a fossil fuel bowser dispenses fuel to a conventional fossil fuel vehicle at a roadside service station.”

“At the same time, the cyclical system also retrieves a similar plurality of depleted batteries from the Electric Vehicle. They are returned to the bowser; and from there to a battery recharging bay.”

Got all that?  Still thinking this 4-minute fuel-up works?  Here’s more from the Battery Fueling experts:

“The Battery Fueling inventions provide two separate improvements to known prior art:”

“The first improvement relates to apparatus, sequences, applications and know-how for a system to sequentially provide, by metered bowser dispensing means, an individual battery to an Electric Vehicle, as the smallest measurable unit of meterable flow between a battery dispensing bowser and a battery powered Vehicle, that also provides a parity system that parallels, mimics or improves upon the conventional flow system that treats an individual small volume of fossil fuel as the smallest measurable unit of meterable flow between a conventional fossil fuel forecourt dispensing bowser and a conventional fossil fuel powered vehicle.”

“The second improvement relates to apparatus, sequences, applications and know-how for a system to provide an individual battery as a small-volume rechargeable Battery temperature reducer, fire-inhibitor and/or fire-extinguisher; that a system may convey to any precise position within a system, especially within a vehicle, for a battery to be placed adjacent or near any compromised battery; for use to provide temperature reduction, fire-inhibition and/or fire-extinguishing facilities relating to that battery, that the computer controlled system has identified as a faulty battery, an overheating battery, a thermal propagation cell-module, a thermal runaway cell-module or an ‘on-fire’ battery.”

Still with us?  Does any of Battery Fueling detailed info make sense?

Battery Fueling would love to commercialize its “invention,” but to do so the company needs investors.  Its current list of investors includes not a single soul.  We certainly wouldn’t jump on board and doubt any other knowledgeable individual would.  But that promise of a 4-minute recharge sure is enticing.  It would be more so if any of Battery Fueling’s information made even a bit of sense.

    Mixing used chemical fluids from thousands of cars together will not work. It’s a dead and expensive system from day 0.

  2. TeV says:

    I may be way off, but I’m envisioning a firearm magazine-style battery compartment (or compartments), let’s say filled with AA-type batteries. The system described above would therefore remove the old/used/defective batteries using some sort of computerized selection process, while simultaneously loading in the new/charged/working ones.

    Not saying this is what they’re proposing, or that it would necessarily work, but that’s how I interpreted the description.

  3. Gary H says:

    “sequentially provide…an individual battery to an Electric Vehicle, as the smallest measurable unit of meterable flow”
    And
    “The inventions provide a…cyclical system that…dispenses a choosable sequential plurality of small volume charged batteries to a…Electric Vehicle…”

    I read it as meaning that the apparatus actually dispenses small physical batteries. (“Choosable sequential plurality” simply means a stream of batteries that you can stop.)

    “At the same time, the cyclical system also retrieves a similar plurality of depleted batteries from the Electric Vehicle. They are returned to the bowser; and from there to a battery recharging bay.”

    So it’s shooting over many small batteries into the car (thousands?), while it’s sucking used batteries from the car. Then the car drives away, and in the meantime the used batteries get recharged. Sounds like battery swap to me, but on a tiny scale with many individual batteries.
    The rest of it has to do with designing the car so that the batteries can be sucked in and out quickly and accurately.

    1. Suprise Cat says:

      Yea, guess I misinterpreted it at first, but still, a dead system.

  4. Richard Noe says:

    They’re talking about battery swapping in the most verbose way possible. These are the kinds of people who can turn a Yes or No answer into a 117 page report.

    BTW Eric, not a single SOUL has invested in this yet 🙂

    1. MikeM says:

      Let’s not carp.
      I’m sure they’ll have an investor or two in plaice soon enough.

    2. Eric Loveday says:

      Thanks Richard…Fixed now!!!

  5. evnow says:

    Some patent ? I bet they don’t have a working system – nor do they plan to produce one.

  6. Brian says:

    I’m sorry, I can’t get past Bowser, So he’s changing out the batteries in my car? Pass!

    Why not just say it takes a minute to recharge?

    Redox batteries with changable electrolyte under research for a long time. I have not heard any news recently. Imagine electrolyte tanks could be located anywhere in the automobile and after depletion electrolyte could be pumped out and tank filed with electricaly charged one.

  9. Dan Frederiksen says:

    It’s a diarrhetic version of Better Place. Similar amount of problems.
    You’re fired.

    1. Darius says:

      It has some advantages and disatvantages. Could be used for heavy trucks and refilling infrustructure could be very cheep utilizing variable wind power. Could be cheaper than jumping to LNG or DME. My sugestion would be to start from goods transport on certain route.
      On other hand the technology is not here therefore nothing to discuss so far.

      1. Richard Noe says:

        Darius, I don’t think Dan’s reply was to your 1st post, but to the article in general.
        Actually, redox batteries as range extenders make a lot more sense than either hydrogen fuel cells or ICEs. Of course, since they have nowhere near the moving parts or maintenance costs of an ICE, automakers aren’t keen on them, and since they don’t need fossil fuels from which to extract the fuel, the oil companies aren’t either.
        Maybe that’s why their development has been so slow.

  10. Lensman says:

    I take it they are using an army of trained ants to install the fresh cells, and remove the spent ones, inside the battery pack? 🙂

    Seriously, in addition to the more obvious difficulties with such a scheme, there is the problem that cells in an EV battery pack need to be charged and discharged at a uniform rate. In fact, one of the problems an EV battery pack designer has is in ensuring there is not an imbalance between cells in a pack. The idea that you could replace just some, but not all, spent cells in the battery pack with freshly charged ones… Well, it’s just one more indication that whoever put up that website does not really understand the subject he is writing about.

      Make sure they are trained fire ants if they are using A123 parts.
