Intriguing rumblings out of Tesla suggests that the company is working on something like a battery pack to power the home.

According to Forbes, Elon Musk’s car company could be using the same sort of battery technology it uses in Tesla cars to hook up to your home electricity.

Exactly how it would work isn’t entirely clear – but it seems to suggest either a battery that will work a bit like a back-up power supply (to keep your stuff running if there’s a power cut), or perhaps even the ability to plug your car into your house and power the house from the car.

Its a move that would make sense, as the technology is similar to what Tesla has already developed, and diversifying would make sense for the company as only recently we found out that it isn’t meeting sales projections on cars and is struggling especially in China.
