Hey, Ali-G.  How'd that abuse thing work out for ya?

It would charge the small 12v battery that "starts" the car, that's all.

There is no pathway to the traction batteries until and unless the car
has been started and is in Ready mode.

 Along with the Prius, AFAIK most cars now have accessory outlets which
are dead when the car is off.  Such cars would need to be modified
before they could accept a charge through their outlets.

Don't tell Brokeback McNasty that.  He thinks he's a Dr. Einstein!

The Prius mod is trivial (one wire, 10 minutes). It's
also easy to hard-wire to the 12V system.
