    Why would they call it ultra if it's just rapid?

    2019 cost of these cells vs other 2019 tech? Seems like now is good time to lease an EV until 2020, should be real buyer's market by then, or if this is some sort of elongated timeframe then maybe 2121.

    Extracting heat from battery pack at rate faster than 6-7kW is pretty much not doable onboard vehicle itself.
    Therefore charging that fast will end up with a pack that is.. well.. much hotter than it was before charging.
    What is maximum comfortable temperature for that chemistry?

    I've heard many versions of coolant flowing offboard - all of them are impractical for passenger vehicles and/or
    charging stations.

    Even if they slow down the charge and give twice the speed as what we have today, that would be a big boost. Imagine getting 300 miles in 30 minutes in the 100 kWh battery.
