In today’s market, efforts seem to really be heavily focused on creating sustainable and renewable energy. At the end of the day, there are a lot of positive benefits to be drawn from this effort. Perhaps we can one day experience a world where energy will be a lot cheaper and can aid in keeping the environment healthier, as well. As of now, while we’re moving in the right direction, there’s still a lot of work to be done. With what we see today, there’s always going to be some sort of waste associated with creating power. However, that isn’t to say that we can’t try to make the best of it all!
After a while, with an electric vehicle, the batteries are going to get a little bit tired. It’s an expense that electric vehicle owners will have to consider when purchasing their car or truck. However, when the batteries are done for, that isn’t to say that they are retired across every axis. In fact, this time, Nissan is showing us a unique way that they choose to put their batteries that are no longer strong enough to power a vehicle to a new use.
In the video below, we get to check out a collaboration between Nissan and Opus. Essentially, they came up with a camper powered by recycled Nissan Leaf batteries. When all is said and done this pop-up camper is pretty neat as it provides amenities for six people to cook, sit, and sleep. That isn’t where the fun stops, though. The rechargeable battery pack provided from the Leaf batteries is able to be used for up to a week and even throws device charging, Wi-Fi, and even a mobile cinema projector, complete with a screen into the mix. This looks like the ultimate way to explore the world if you ask us!
