Multi-charger car

Charge one car with more than one charger

Most public car charging points have more than one outlet on them, and are capable of charging more than one car simultaneously.

A car battery should be switchable into sections, each capable of being simultaneously charged at the same time.

The car has multiple input sockets. Multiple cables are used to charge the car from multiple outlet points simultaneously, multiplying thereby the shortness of the charge time required.

       Sounds good. On the other hand, it would reduce availability for other users.

       Needs a 3 outlet adapter, as illustrated in words below:   

       EV1 sidles up to charging bar. User/owner/driver plugs in up to three plugs (one in the actual parking spot, and those of the two adjacent spots, if empty). This allows for EV1 to charge quickly, then gedouttaDodge faster, freeing up the space.   

       If EV2, and/or EV3, arrive in adjacent spot, that user can access their plug. The original plug for EV1's spot is only accessible/removable by the user/owner/driver of EV1. EV1 now charges at normal rate.   

       Win-win-win(d)!

       Is there a limit on how quickly one can recharge a single cell of an electric vehicle's battery?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 19 2017
  

       Yes, but the actual upper limit is unique to the cell, depending on its design and charge/discharge history.   

       Its practical determination is comparatively simple; simply attach a variable charger to the cell, and gradually increase the charge current. When the cell explodes, record the current - this is the maximum allowable value.

       Excellent plan. I will shortly be approaching your milk-float with a pair of leads.
