[CES 2011] General Electric continues their rich tradition and history of bringing the latest in the world of electronics to the market by showcasing a cool looking electric vehicle charger.

It will take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours to fully juice up your vehicle, and according to a General Electric spokesperson, they are banking on the company’s branding, longevity and service to stand out from the rest of the crowd as there will definitely be other companies rolling out something similar and most probably cheaper as well. The final product is meant to see action on public roads in a much more utilitarian design that isn’t so snazzy, and to make it effective, we would think each parking lot in the public sphere will come with one of these puppies – otherwise can you imagine queuing up at the electric station for a few hours for your turn?
