Adstoppi Blog | Nissan concept uses recycled Leaf batteries to power camping trips

Published by:


Nissan has sold more than 350,000 Leafs since the car debuted in 2011, and as they've aged, the company has thrown around a lot of ideas about how to recycle their batteries. The latest idea: a smart pop-up camper powered by old Leaf battery cells.

The camper concept was developed in partnership with off-road camping manufacturer Opus. The Leaf-powered pack in the concept camper stores just 700wH, and has a maximum output of 1kW — a small slice of a typical Leaf battery, but still plenty to power all the electronics in the camper for a few days, including multiple USB sockets, LED lighting, a 4G hotspot, as well as the included portable microwave, dual-burner gas stove, and fridge. A 400W solar panel can recharge the battery pack in two to four hours, according to Nissan. But the pack can also be removed and plugged directly into any 230V outlet.

Since it's just a concept, it's not clear if Nissan and Opus' collaboration will ever make it to market. But outdoor adventurers are clearly a customer base the Japanese automaker wants to explore. Just last year, the company showed off a limited-release electric camper van with a range of 124 miles.

The company confirmed the issue to The Verge, saying, “We are currently investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter. We’ll keep you updated on what’s happening here.” The outage, which began around 2:40PM ET, took place as conservative activists gathered at the White House to complain about their treatment by social media companies.

FaceApp — the photo editing app that uses neural networks to create dramatic photo edits — is skyrocketing to social media popularity again, thanks to a new aging filter, but Democrats aren’t on board with the fun. The Democratic National Committee instead reportedly sent out an alert warning 2020 Democratic presidential campaigns from using the app due to concerns about the app’s Russian developers, according to a report from CNN, and Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has officially asked the FBI and FTC to conduct a national security investigation into FaceApp, according to NBC News: “This app allows users to perform different transformations on photos of people, such as aging the person in the picture.

Apple is today rolling out software updates across iOS, watchOS, and the HomePod as it prepares for much bigger releases with new features coming this fall. The iOS 12.4 release introduces a new “iPhone migration” option that “introduces the ability to wirelessly transfer data and migrate directly from an old iPhone to a new iPhone during setup,” according to the update release notes. Apple has already offered a wireless transfer option between iOS devices, but it relies on iCloud for just about everything. The new method transfers a lot of content — app data, device settings, photos, etc. — directly from iPhone to iPhone. Apps must still be downloaded from the App Store after the migration step is complete, however. One significant thing is that passwords are now included in...

President Donald Trump's tentative trade deal with China, announced earlier today, has saved Apple from raising the prices or eating those price hikes itself, of some of its most popular products, including the iPhone. According to Bloomberg, which cites Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives, Apple's top iPhone models could have been hit with a 15 percent tariff, which equates to a bump in the price of around $150 for the base model iPhone 11 Pro, if the trade deal had not been reached. The tariffs were set to go into effect on December 15th and would have impacted the iPhone, the iPad, and the MacBook line, among other products. "Trump delivered an early Christmas present to Apple," Ives said in a note to investors obtained by Bloomberg. "If this tariff went through it would have been a...

Use YouTube For Marketing

Published by:

YouTube was launched in the calendar year 2005 with the only purpose to provide individuals a platform to view, upload and share videos. With the passing of time, the popularity of the website grew by leaps and bounds. Today, roughly 800 million identifying visitors visit YouTube each month, and almost 48 hours of movie content is uploaded each moment.

In reality, to create videos that are hypnotic, you do not need money or unique skills. With a simple camcorder and a dash of imagination, you can easily create mind-boggling videos which may mesmerize your own prospects and convince them not just to endorse your...

Buying Structured Settlements

Published by:

There are several ways to create an income. And after that, there's the possibility of purchasing a structured settlement. What's a settlement? When a person wins his case and brings a suit say, for an injury on the job that has caused an impairment, for example, the judge is able to award the plaintiff a compensation from the defendant. This settlement is most commonly a single payment. Let's imagine that you get been awarded one million dollars without feeling on your arm, from a suit against your employer for an accident at work which has left. You have done with it and might, of course, take the million dollars. But you may thrash out a deal to get your award. This is called a structured settlement. Opt for a settlement? Plaintiffs opt to have a settlement as opposed to payment in 1...

President Trump said in a tweet this morning that his administration will not allow Apple to avoid tariffs on Mac Pro parts, after the company requested exemptions earlier this month. As part of an ongoing trade battle with China, the Trump administration has proposed stiff tariffs on imports from China. The list of proposed goods includes electronics, potentially hitting Apple with tariff increases as high as 25 percent. Earlier this month, Apple filed requests with the Office of the US Trade Representative, asking for some parts to be excluded from the planned tariffs. While the filings did not explicitly mention the Mac Pro, Bloomberg reported last week that the descriptions in the filings matched up with parts for the desktop computer. Apple recently moved its manufacturing of the Mac...

The Trump administration is drafting an executive order to ban “anti-conservative bias” on social media, according to Politico. The report quotes three anonymous sources, including one White House official, saying that the plan is still nebulous and in its early stages. It supposedly “deals with other topics besides tech bias,” though it’s not clear what those are. But it’s a sign that Trump wants concrete action on a subject he’s been complaining about for years — and a move that might conflict with Trump’s recent request for more aggressive policing of potential violence on social media. Trump said last month that the White House would “explore all legislative and regulatory solutions to protect free speech and the free speech of all Americans.” The official,...

Amazon is developing a Lord of the Rings MMO

Published by:

Amazon Game Studios has announced its latest project: a Lord of the Rings massively multiplayer online game that Amazon is developing in partnership with Leyou. It’s planned as a free-to-play title for both PC and consoles. The title was actually announced last year by Leyou-owned Athlon Games. At the time, Athlon was said to be working with an unnamed “partner developer,” which was revealed today to be Amazon Game Studios. According to Athlon’s announcement last fall, the new MMO is set “at a time long before the events of The Lord of the Rings, exploring lands, people and creatures never seen before by fans of the Tolkien universe.” That may sound similar to Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings TV series, which is also said to be set in Middle-earth long before J.R.R...
