The only solution I've heard to the on-the-road charging problem is to "rent" the battery packs instead of owning them, and change out the whole pack at the "recharge station."

Would you take an 'unknown' battery pack into your car and drive out into the desert with it? Imagine a battery pack that has a 'problem' and somebody gets hurt because it died suddenly, or worse, caught fire...who's responsible? The station? The previous battery pack user? The manufacturer? Renting battery packs will never catch's just not viable.
