Thanks in advance.
It's my guess that all the L2 EVSEs that also work on 120v ignore the 12a limit. I know all mine do and will happily charge at 120v at all the current settings they will do on 240v. Well I guess except my '13 EVSEupgrade'd EVSE which will do 20a L2 but restricts 120v to 12a
Note I'm almost positive the new Juiceboxe's output full amperage on 120v, their old ones do and from looking at their website it looks like the new ones do, I know I personally wouldn't be interested in any EVSE that didn't
Well, at least on our smart car, our leads than one year old juice box only charges at 12 amps on 120. Haven't tried the leaf yet.
My guess is, just like the pre '13 Leafs, your car is restricting the 120v charging current, not the EVSE
Again my Juicebox that happly charges my '13 Leaf @ 27.5a on 120v only charges 12a with my '12 Leaf with the 3.6kw charger, I believe your Smart car is like my '12 Leaf.
