Re: Nema 14-30 Outlet for 2018 Leaf

If you don't mind the slower charging, I've been using a 14-30 for charging my LEAF for two years. I use a Clipper Creek LCS-25 since my car doesn't have quick charging. It just depends on how fast you want to charge and how much you want to spend.

As long as the 14-50 is under your control you can use any circuit. The only rated configuration is 50A or 40A with a 50A or 40A breaker. Plugging a 16A EVSE will only draw its 16A from any outlet so if it is in a controlled access site you should be OK.
2012 Cayenne Red SL traded for:
2013 Pearl White SL Premium
Traded for a Cirrus White 2014 Mercedes B (totaled)
2016 Urano Gray eGolf SEL w/ drive assist
Loved the VW but it sat too low for my old body
Back to a Cirrus White 2017 B250e
