Video: Better Place Opens First Battery Swap Station in Israel

Here's the gloriously "unexciting" process of switching out an electric battery at Better Places first commercial swap station.

The concept of swapping out depleted batteries for fresh charged ones is what distinguishes Better Place in the burgeoning EV market.

It's really no different than a full service fill-up of 93 octane.

Goodbye, "range anxiety."
