Emergency Household AC Power Powered By DIY Electric Car

Last week the power went out for 2-1/2 hours. As my family sat in the dark I thought, man...I have a whole pile of batteries in the Electric Booger sitting in the driveway that could be powering my TV and keeping my beer cold.

I started to searching for weird inverters like this one: Inverter Tie Grid 1000w Dc 48v 60v 72v (45-90v) Input To Ac 190-260v/90-130v Output - Buy Inverter Tie Grid,48v 60v 72v Solar Grid Tie Inverter,72v Input Solar Inverter Product on Alibaba.com
OR
BRF 1000W MCU Modified Sine Wave Inverter with intelligence DC12/24/48/60/72V TO AC220/110V-in Inverters & Converters from Electrical Equipment & Supplies on Aliexpress.com

Seems like a good solution for backup power. Has anybody tried this before? Are there better solutions than the one in the link?
