We've been testing our new leisure battery again this weekend, this time in 240v mode and its amazing!
It's only a prototype at the moment, available as a special order after signing an NDA and shipped directly from N.Korea.
Physically it's about the same size as a regular leisure battery and fits snugly under the seat, but has extra cabling so you can connect it directly to your 240v hookup and a big switch so it can operate in either 12v or 240v and run anything you need.
Last night we had our radiator and electric blanket plugged in, charged both our phones and iPad, fridge and internal lights on, Serena even used her hair straiteners and we still have 2 orange lights on the battery meter!
I think there are some import licensing issues to overcome before it is readily available in the UK - something to do with the Plutonium content - and it won't be cheap either, but IMO well worth it for convenience and you'll save a packet not needing to pay for EHU at any site ever again!
If anyone wants more info just PM me, but keep it hush, this will be BIG news when word gets out and the price will go through the roof!
