Better Place battery swap station - click above for high res gallery

While the full jury is still out on Better Place's battery swap idea, the first "juror" seems to have made up her mind. The company said last week that its automatic battery exchange stations have swapped out 1,000 batteries and vice president Jason Wolf told attendees at the Smart Grid Innovation Symposium that the swaps have been made without a hitch. The robots in the swap stations have not had any problems exchanging the 400-lb batteries, Wold said. So, one big technical question about Better Place's strategy has, at least for now, been answered. The bigger questions about the financial side of things are still debatable.
