Is the price including the inverter "nice" for those in the know?

Emergency Power Wiring Kit for 2011…Emergency Power Wiring Kit for 2011-2012 Nissan Leaf with Inverter
$369.00Item number: EVEX-1001LItem price: $369.00Quantity: 1

I've been thinking of the same for a while... Does require ON mode for the car, correct?

Yes, On or Drive mode (with the car in Park) is necessary. The inclusive deal looks fine if the inverter is good. The deal for the wiring alone is a little pricier for what you get.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Thanks for the input. I'm saving up for this bad boy. =)

The owner of that company is a really smart guy (based in Central NY), and really cares about the quality. He has been selling these kits for a while, and have yet to hear a complaint.

He used my car to take measurements for the 2013 since the battery layout/PDM location changed.

I still have to get an inverter, but did have him install the wiring little over a year ago.

Have you seen his instruction set for installing the wiring? Is it pretty good?
I have a pure sine wave inverter. The wire kit seems expensive, but if the instructions are real clear and descriptive, that would be worth the extra cost.

I have one. In fact, that's my leaf pictured on the website. The kit is a good deal when you consider the thick wires and the built in fuse. Installing was pretty easy, but I'd be happy to answer specific questions if you have them. Also remember that he sells a pure sine wave inverter which gives a cleaner output but costs more. If you don't need one, you can get cheaper inverters on amazon.

Thank you for the information. That's what I needed to know.
