Electric car’s battery to power home appliances

The Yomiuri Shimbun
Mitsubishi Motors Corp. announced Monday that the company plans to market a device that enables i-MiEV electric cars to supply power to home electric appliances such as rice cookers in emergencies by the end of this year.

The device, which will make it possible to use the i-MiEV’s lithium-ion battery as a power source for electric appliances, will likely attract people’s attention as a mobile high-capacity power source in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake, which deprived many people of household power.

The company has provided local governments in devastated areas with about 80 electric cars. In response to a survey conducted by the company, many respondents expressed a wish to have power “to cook rice.”
