It is a very interesting application. How does it work? Is it fully automatic? Or it can be manually changed the mode from charging to powering. Indicators of charge left will definitely help.

This is a auto motive charger cum UPS. probably this will have a connection to the existing UPS system in the house. So the out let from the leaf system to the home will go through the existing UPS system and during this leaf system works the batteries in the home UPS system not to be charged and only when the power is available those batteries will be charged. The reason is when the car is not there the existing UPS need to power the house.
