Re: @Zog

We have petrol stations with several thousands of litres of highly flammable petrol in tanks, used to fill up dozens of cars with 60 litres each every few minutes. We solved that problem pretty well, so I doubt some electrical charging can't be solved safely.

Flammable it may be, but it won't ignite spontaneously.

Work out the energy flow for 60litres in 5 minutes, in electrical terms that's well into the special-clothing-and-training range, and one poor connection means an explosion that will kill anyone within a few metres.
