Why not just switch the batteries

you can have someone sitting around for hours with their car plugged it waiting for it to recharge.

One would think the obvious solution is to have standardized interchangeable battery packs. The service station would charge them for hours, but switching can be done in a minute. Like back when cellular phone batteries had worse capacity (in the pre-lithium days). I used to have two batteries, one charging, one in the phone.
