Tesla unveils battery-swapping tech for fast car charging

Re: Nice idea but doesnt work

Makes perfect sense. The battery already has all the smarts it needs to know who bought it, its condition, and if you prefer ale or lager. I am guessing the car is already tied into the cell system, get it a phone number of its own. Then your smart phone, home computer, or even voice prompt telephone attendent can tell you all you need to know. Including the plate number of every car that has ever shared the battery with you, if your turn signal lamp needs replacement, a picture of the lamp to show the guy in the auto parts store, if you need windshield wiper fluid, your tire pressure, and a picture of the last dog to lift its leg on that tire.
