Before a product is simply condemned for one aspect of its operation, I think it is best to consider the totality of all its features along with its perceived shortcomings in order to make a better comparison with competing products.

As I am finally getting my year old Clipper Creek installed soon. :D
Thanks....... :?:

The issue is with the Nissan L2 EVSE is not compatible with very common 208 volt electric service. Must have 240 volt service.
ClipperCreek is good to go.


This strikes me as strange. If I'm not mistaken, a Japan EVSE would normally see 200V. You'd think they would have made a single EVSE design that could be used in all of LEAF's biggest markets -- Japan, North America, UK
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Read the threads. Everyone has been baffled by what seems to be a completely brain dead design limitation.

I've read quite a few and of course failure to accomodate 208V is baffling for the North American market. I don't recall the issue of Japan 200V standard being raised. Perhaps it was, but I'm not going to read every post ever made to find out :P
