The DC/DC is off when key is off. What does the charge rate have to do with having something on? What type of constant load are you looking to have on all the time. if you give me details I can give you better info. The solar panel generates very little power and just trickle charges the 12V battery.
Well, say if the power is out and I need to plug in my 2 refrigerators, a few fluorescent lights and a few laptops to a 12VDC to 120AC inverter.. The car would be ideal to provide backup power. I guess we will just have to wait a bit until specs are released.
If you decide to do that, you will void your warranty.
