Re: CHAdeMO bi-directional

I might be interested if the power specifications meet my needs. Is the output 3-wire 120/240 volts, 240 volts only, or 120 volts only. I trust that it is a true sine wave inverter, correct? What is the capacity in kW?

$4000 for a power inverter?

I cannot see this as mass produced product.

I can go to Harbor Freight and get a $50 1500 watt inverter for my 12 volt battery on the leaf..

may not last for weeks, but days?
Limited market which could change rapidly if we get the right forces moving the proper direction. Its like the $500 VCR, enough demand and the price will drop. I think as coal drops off with NG to follow, having this kind of option might be more attractive.

I've learned that Nissan will void the battery warranty on vehicles that are being used for power export. Obviously they can't tell on the 12V side. No idea if the BMS logs V2G/H sessions. I believe Nissan is working on a certification spec for under 10kW so you can do V2H while still keeping the battery warranty intact.

That said, Princeton Power went out of business last year (they did the hardware for the V2G trials at LAAFB), so your current options are the Setec or up-and-coming Wallbox. :| In Japan they have a few other options, but all of them are very pricy.
