Why, thank you, I agree. Since any given battery cell can only take so much charging current, reducing the charging time for the pack as a whole requires higher voltage. In order to be seen as a reasonable replacement by most people for liquid fuels, I think the 20-80% charge time has to be no more than 20 minutes, but preferably 10 minutes or less (with adequate range also). To eliminate virtually all extra time spent charging we want to get the 0-100% charge time down to that level, with a battery that can take that without degradation.
