thanks for posting that link

as it provides a little bit of clarity to the quasi-technical jumble of concept words invoked in the original post.

To wit, sez C&D's blog:

"Fisker claims that the EMotion will have a 400-mile electric range and will be able to reach 161 mph. The company also says its UltraCharger will be able to provide the car with 100 miles of range in just nine minutes. The EMotion will be based on a lightweight carbon and aluminum structure and will utilize supercapacitors and graphene battery technology that Henrik Fisker characterizes as a "major breakthrough.""

So: 100 miles of juice in 9 minutes.
Supercapacitors AND graphene batteries.

Having had a 100 uF @ 100V bypass cap let go & eviscerate itself in my 2A3 amp last week, I am not looking forward to what supercapacitors'll do when something goes a wee bit awry. ;-)

As a snarky aside: There certainly seems to be an inverse correlation between the use of words like "breakthrough" and "technology" in the modern era with actual content. The best thing I can say is that I didn't espy the word "transformational" attributed to Mr. Fisker.

all the best,
