"The little key fob remote is interesting: you pull out a small antenna, and can control remote charging timers, or start/stop manual charging, or cool, heat or defrost the car while it's hooked up to its charger. "
Here is a excerpt from a review:
Another simple solution Mitsubishi uses with the i is its bizarre remote key fob. This non-Internet-connected device can communicate wirelessly with the vehicle (if within range) to pre-heat or pre-cool the vehicle, as well as set the charging process. We think the fob is too big and does too little – and carrying another digital piece of plastic is annoying – but company spokesman Maurice Durand reminds AutoblogGreen that Mitsubishi is really dealing with a car that's three years old at this point, and the fob was the simplest solution without adding cost. We hope that a smart-phone solution will be coming at some point.

I guess we will have to get a hold of one it before we can do much.

Perhaps a kit without batteries could be offered at a lot lower price that would interest a few more buyers?

Using LFP with their kit is more risk and trouble than I want to go to. I asked them for a quote, exported to USA, but I didn't get a reply.
