The critically-acclaimed 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is capable of doing a lot of things, perhaps most notably, charging other EVs and even powering homes for days at a time. The Lightning’s vehicle-to-vehicle charging capability is obviously meant to help provide juice to other all-electric vehicles, but as we’ve also seen, the EV pickup can even charge itself, sort of. Now, the folks behind the YouTube channel Out of Spec Motoring have conducted a bit of an experiment to see how well this particular feature works, and the results are undoubtedly impressive.
In this particular experiment, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is used to charge five other EVs at once, letting the charge take place overnight to see just how much energy can be transferred in total. To do that, Out of Spec utilizes one of the four 120-volt outlets in the frunk, one in-cabin outlet, with the other three drawing power from the truck’s bed outlets. There’s nothing inherently dangerous about such a job, but this still comes with a bit of a disclaimer that we probably shouldn’t try it at home.
