Mitsubishi dealers in Japan will start selling a 1500W AC inverter that is powered by the car's battery via the L3 Chademo socket. Priced at a rather high $1815 USD including taxes, hopefully with a clean true sine-wave output.
Mitsubishi announced that it will bring to market on April 27 the new MiEV power BOX power feeder which is capable of supplying large amounts of electrical power from an electric vehicle (EV). Supplied by a Mitsubishi Group affiliate, the MiEV power BOX will be offered as a dealer option for the company's i-MiEV and MINICAB-MiEV EVs and will carry a manufacturer's recommended tax-inclusive price of $1,815 USD.
The MiEV power BOX is an adapter that plugs into the i-MiEV or MINICAB-MiEV's quick charging connector and is capable of supplying up to 1500 watts of AC electricity from the power stored in the vehicle's drive battery. It has been designed mainly to power household electrical appliances either when away from home or in an emergency. When connected to a fully-charged 16.0 kWh battery-equipped model the MiEV power BOX can supply 1500 watts of power for between five and six hours, equivalent to the amount consumed by an average Japanese household in a single day."
There would be NO WAY, not ever, that a car manufacturer would include an inverter, other than "Perhaps" for camping..
Two reasons - Firstly the serious chance of someone kills themselves, via something THEY fitted.
Secondly - how would they guarantee the battery system, when you might abuse the battery by over-discharging.
Even better would be to feed it into the grid during daylight hours. (My solar panels don't feed-in much over winter!) 10kWh feed-in = $6.80. Net income = $4.50 per day.
Can I get some sort of control box that limits the current output from the AC socket on the car?
