Indeed. As I think I've posted this before, someone on a Leaf FB group in Japan had lost enough bars to take advantage of his capacity warranty on his 24 kWh Leaf. When I asked how, he mentioned had the V2H system.

The guy told me the reason is that if you have no grid power and let's say you turn on an oven. Suddenly, there's a huge jump in demand and CHAdeMO doesn't let you do have that sudden sharp increase. I don't recall if the words he used were that it has to be a ramp up or in steps.
That would make sense if the CHAdeMO (or CCS) cannot respond fast enough and result in a serious voltage drop in the AC side - even though the EV battery is plenty big enough to supply the DC current. There is also the issue of syncing up with the grid when the utility power comes back. The hybrid solar inverters that have battery storage for backup have figured all this out, but their storage batteries don't have the CHAdeMO/CCS protocols to deal with.

Demo'ed at the recent CES...Ex-Tesla Supercharge team member Doug Alfaro debuts the "Quasar" bi-directional EVSE. Priced at $4K. V2H system using Chademo connector. Sounds like it runs from a 40 amp circuit...Only works now on LEAFs and Outlanders...
