Why does the ICE come one 10 min every hour? I thought that the 12V battery is getting charged from the HV battery..
After the battery is drawn down the engine will come on briefly to bring it back to the 30% state of charge....and keep repeating....it's a lot shorter than 10 mins, I couldn't edit it out and change it...Why does the ICE come one 10 min every hour?

You can go up two 240watt inverters but I went with two 180watt ones to ensure I would always be below the max. This way if you exceed the inverter maximum the inverter would blow, not the fuse or circuit.... I also prefer pure sine wave so I don't have to figure out which sensitive devices I can run without damaging them. DC Fusor would be able to elaborate more on this stuff....What happens if you exceed the capacity? Just a blown fuse or something worse?
I'm really hoping someone comes up with a well-thought through kit to leverage the traction battery, but not counting on it. This would be a huge draw for Volt sales with more and more people on the east coast that have been going for a couple weeks a year without power (ie. me who lives in the Washington DC area).
