Ford has a collaborative project with researchers at Purdue University on new patent-pending charging technology, as detailed by CarBuzz. The new charging technology enables an owner of an electric vehicle to charge the battery as quickly as filling up a tank of gas.
The new charging technology features a cooling method in which liquid acts as an active cooling agent. By using a cooling agent, the liquid transforms to vapor, which enables more heat to be extracted from the charging cable. With the new invention, Ford aims to make electric vehicles that can charge very fast but in a safe manner.
