"20 AMP 220 breaker (capability) but set up as a 20 AMP 110 breaker"
My actual EV charging equipment tag says:
It came with the purchase of the 2018 Leaf."This charger draws a constant 12 A at AC 120 V 60 HZ or 30 A at AC 240 V 60 HZ"
In my understanding, correct me if I'm wrong, 12 A @ 120 V is just a regular plug trickle charge which I can already do because of the adapter that came with the leaf.
I'm looking for being able to charge at the 30 A @ 240 V (or something close/equivalent). However, since my breaker box is on the third floor, re-wiring is too expensive. Is my best option (is it even an option?) to get some new EVSE that can supply the 2018 Nissan Leaf without any wiring upgrades? Would it be able to charge at a rate that is closer to the Level 2 then the trickle charge?
I'm really hoping for a sub $700 solution.
