Using hybrid vehicles as a backup power for household appliances may end up replacing backup generators. It will also make Prius hybrids a more attractive choice for camping expeditions. The idea came from Toyota observing people using their Toyota Estima hybrid van as an emergency source of power in the immediate aftermath of the March earthquake and tsunami disaster . While a normal 12v car battery can provide power for a limited amount of time, the much larger batteries of a hybrid vehicle could power a makeshift camp, able to deliver up to 1,500 watts of constant power. With a full tank of gas, that is enough for about two days worth of power…depending on how much you have plugged in.
