That's why I had a dryer socked installed in my garage when we built our house (even though I never intended on putting a dryer in the garage)...for only $25 :D

Realistically a 24A EVSE on a dryer outlet will charge even 40A cars overnight. If you have an unused dryer outlet then that is the way to go. It avoids the expense of running a dedicated 240V line.

Me, my dryer in the garage was gas only and the panel was close so I installed a 50A 14-50 circuit.

As the OP of this 2 page thread hasn't even bothered to log back on since his OP, we may never know if they were just trying to use their OEM Leaf charger or a L2 EVSE :? Until they do, everything is just speculation :?:
