Shell getting into the electric car market with a (potentially) revolutionary charging system

Everyone knows that electric cars are expensive, you have a limited range and then you're stuck at a charging station for awhile and that's only if you can find a charger with the right connector. But what if that all weren't the case?

Royal Dutch Shell, the oil giant, is funding a new start-up called Ample:
“Ample has invented an economical, rapidly deployable and widely accessible platform that delivers a full charge to any electric car in minutes. An alternative to traditional charging, Ample uses autonomous robotics and smart-battery technology, making it feasible for anyone to own an electric car regardless of driving needs, economic means, or geographic location.”
