Curious as to what can be done when the battery is fully charged? Can you use the Aptera battery to charge other devices or be used to power appliances? I know some EVs have this functionality (use battery to power other devices) but with the built in solar panels, it seems like some one has probably already thought of this scenario. I doubt that enough power is generated to make it worth sending the extra power generated to the grid, but that would be cool.
At 80% state of charge there should be unused solar available for running or charging other devices from pure solar without effecting the remaining 20% of charging. My plan is to add 200w of solar anytime the car isn’t moving. The panels I use will take up almost no storage space and add only 3 or 4 pounds.
That is what I would hope / expect. But it would also depend on the outlet and how much power they allow from that circuit before tripping the fuse. Refrigerators draw a lot of power when the compressor kicks on.
