No, this is not an efficient or green method for lighting a tree (unless, that is, the power within the battery originated from solar), but its Christmas, so we thought we'd share with you what Nissan has done to light a tree over in Japan.

If you're not on solar and are still thinking of lighting your Christmas tree in this way, the more efficient option would be to just plug it in to the wall socket, but that doesn't make for such a grand display now does it?
