Siphoning Electricity

Aug 23, 2011

Designed for use during blackouts or when electricity is expensive because of high demand, this supply system lets owners of Nissan Leaf electric cars power their homes with the energy stored in the car’s batteries. Fully charged, a Leaf’s batteries can supply an average Japanese house for about two days, or an American house for most of one day.
