Toyota advertises that the iForceMax system comes with a 2400W 120V power inverter. Traditional gas versions of their vehicles (to include the V6 GX550) only include a 400W inverter. Obviously the 400W inverter requires the vehicle to be running and acting as a gas-powered generator. I have no experience with hybrid setups, but I understand that the LC will sport a 1.87-kWh NiMH Battery. Any idea if this will allow the inverter to function with the vehicle powered off? I'm trying to wrap my head around how I can implement this into my off-grid camping setup and if it's any replacement for a Jackery-type system (I'm expecting a resounding NO).
My understanding is that the vehicle will need to be on, but the engine will start and stop automatically to top up the battery as needed.
I was thinking the same thing, maybe a good way of doing would be to use a small power station in conjunction with the battery so that you don't need to leave the vehicle on all the time.
very interested to see how this functions as well!
