A cure for ex­haus­tion

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

PHYSICS has never been my strong point and the fol­low­ing par­tial so­lu­tion to Agromenes’s prob­lems (May 2) may ap­pear naïve, but rather than be faced with the in­con­ve­nience of find­ing lo­cally ac­ces­si­ble charge sta­tions and wast­ing the time in­volved in recharg­ing, why not stan­dard­ise the size and shape of bat­tery packs and sim­plify their in­stal­la­tion? Petrol sta­tions could then act as sources for rapid bat­tery-pack re­place­ment. The at­ten­dant would sim­ply pull out your ex­hausted bat­tery pack and re­place it with a fully charged one, leav­ing you to drive off with an­other 300 or so miles in your ‘tank’.
