The answers to life's truly important problems

A Model S has a 12V lighter socket just like every other car on the market. It can deliver about 150W just like every other car on the market. So you can use it to power and charge small devices, appliances etc, just like every other car on the market, either with a small inverter, or with a DC-DC converter depending on your need. Really not sure why this is even a question. It's like asking "can I transport groceries in my Model S?". The answer is obviously yes. The fact the Model S also has a 400V electrical system as well as the 12V one is a red herring. You can't use that for anything except propelling the vehicle in the same way that your RV doesn't let you cook food using the gasoline in the tank.
