    Elon Musk twitted that charging maybe much faster!

    I took this article from the web site and look at the charging time and range.

    What that would mean is a current Nissan LEAF would have a range of 730 miles, and a empty-to-full charging time of about 3 minutes on a Level 3 charger. Read hold article below.

    Tesla Developing 500-mile Graphene Battery? - Gas 2

    What do you think is coming? Can you imagine if Musk can make this come true. The reason why I find this article so interesting is because Musk twitted that level 3 charging will be needed.

    Manufacturing, cost, and longevity typically limit most things until they can be overcome.
