I dont know much about electrical systems, so I would like to pose a question. Could the Insight be used to power regular plug-in appliances? If the IMA battery is 144v and wall outlets are 120v(if that is correct), it seems that you could power small appliances from the IMA battery; possibly a blender for tailgating, a small tv, or a light. I know about power inverters that plug into the cig. lighter, but that would just gobble up the power in the 12v battery if the Insight was not running, correct? I have heard that the IMA battery is not allowed to drain below 20% or above 80% to help with extending the life of the battery. I would not want to negate that feature in trying something like this. Please let me know where I made incorrect assumptions and share your ideas or concerns. Thanks.
