    That is pretty cool.

    You can only power an AC load that is 1.25A max, which is a bit restrictive, but for tailgating, and powering a small TV, that would work.

    Were it really comes into play is that at 12VDC, it could output 12.5 amps, which would be a great way to keep a battery charged via sunlight. Pretty cool.
