All the miners run on 12v - why not set up a bank of batteries and 14v solar to top charge all the batteries and just have a brownout circuit cut the connection if it dropped below 12v.  I am an old custom car guy and as I wander my garage I have a ton of GIANT 12V power supplies from running batteries to charge large scaled stereo displays.  One we built had 4 yellow top optimas and a Kinetic battery optimizer.  Currently we are losing a lot of efficiency going from dc-panels  to ac inverter and back to dc.  I know it's not the norm, but I guess I'm not normal.  Yes I am aware that it would take a healthy array of batteries.  and solar panels.

 Tangent # 2  CHademo plug on nissan leaf.  They have already developed leaf to home - essentially a bi directional charger/inverter.  It's too bad the nissan leaf doesn't have a 100wk battery in it.  With it's little itty bitty 23KW battery it's not worth hot lapping to charge the car in my opinion.  Even tho there are a lot of FREE chargers in Las vegas.  I used to have a tesla, but it was prior to the chademo adapter.  The adapter is $500 approx for the Tesla and the leaf to home 6kw inverter 20kw charger I can get for about 4k.  I cant be the only one that has thought about this.  90-100Kw super charged and used at home becomes worth it quickly.  However, I can't imagine that Tesla has not figured out that this is an option....

okay  you can charge your car battery for free correct?

So  you are a car guy correct?

So can you put 5 batteries in the  nissan leaf with a switch and charge 5 batteries?
If so how long does that take?

How  much power  would that set of  5 batteries hold?

I am thinking  you run a gpu rig  with power risers the 6 gpus all powered with the car batteries.  would pull under 600 watts. use a second psu to power the rest of the rig.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
