The Ford F-150 Lightning is ready to come to the rescue.
The all-electric pickup has two-way charging capability that allows it to use its battery to power other electrical devices up to 240 volts in some models.
This includes electric cars, including Teslas.
To drive home that point, Ford shipped F-150 Lightnings with an accessory to help them do just that.
Owners posted photos of adapters they received, including one that allows Tesla’s unique charging cable to plug into the common SAE J1772 connector. used by most other electric vehicles.
The device retails for around $60 on Amazon, and a Ford spokesperson confirmed to Fox News Autos that it’s an official program run by the automaker for early F-150 Lightning customers.
Ford CEO Jim Farley tweeted that it was “not trolling, just helpful”.

Unfortunately, Tesla owners will not be able to reciprocate in kind as Tesla’s vehicles currently do not have bi-directional capability.
The F-150 Lightning can also be used as a home backup power system when paired with a $3,895 integration system, with a full battery capable of powering a typical home for three days or more.
