That's the only number that matters. Is it a product for us commoners or a toy for rich people?

They have prices listed: https://www.ev2power.co.uk/purchase

£2750 for 3 KW, £3450 for 6 KW. Definitely out of my price range. Guessing it doesn't support split-phase AC, making it much less useful in the U.S. for serving 240/120V.

Apparently 2700 euros for the 3kW version? Yikes! You can get a 1500W EV Extend kit for less than a 10th of the price...

Or a 6kW split phase inverter with 18kW surge and battery backup system for about the same price...

Those units aren't the same - it's an apples vs oranges comparison. There are loads of inverters that convert 12V/24V/36V/48V DC to 240V split phase AC but very few units that plug directly into the CHAdeMO port on the front of the Leaf and use the battery pack in the car directly. If I really needed one, I'm sure one of the 12V etc units could be made to work but honestly at that point, I'd probably just buy a propane generator. The concept of using the traction battery of a Leaf as a Tesla Power Wall type unit is intriguing but as you noticed, the cost is still quite high.
