While I was visiting a party at a remote location with no connection to the power grid there was a generator running to power a couple of lights after sun-down. The generator is noisy and stinks and it got me thinking: We did have a couple of cars right next to us. Chademo supports bidirectional charging.
Are there any affordable and portable options for such cases to extract power in a form that normal household devices running on 230V can be connected?
Edit: I am aware of 12V/230V inverters. Actually I own one. But the 12V battery of cars have low capacity, so I specifically ask about using the high-voltage battery of purely electric cars. E.g. the charging connector Chademo that most Asian manufactured cars have supports bidirectional charging and can thus use the high-voltage battery. But can I convert that to 230V AC?
EDIT2: The Chademo-Specification to charge electric cars allows for "vehicle to grid" decharging. So the idea is e.g. that you can charge your vehicles battery during the day with solar power and then power your home at night from the car's battery, effectively using the battery as a buffer (or in the even more advanced version not just YOUR home, but the whole grid). E.g. Princeton Power Systems sell a charging station that provides Vehicle to grid. Now hat I was thinking about was a something similar, but much much smaller device, so that it is portable and affordable. But effectively it should plugin to the chademo port, have an inverter and provide a 230V power outlet. (I used chademo as an example here, maybe there are other/better ways).
