Nissan portable charger wall holster need one

Wed Aug 29, 2018 9:11 am

Hi all, I got a 2018 Leaf back in May. Just finished my electrical install to enable home charging, needed to run 90 feet of wiring and a new 240 outlet.

Problem is now I want to use the portable charger that came with the car. In the charging manual, it shows a wall mounted holster that isnt with the charger, NOR can I find one online to purchase.

Anyone know if it should have come with the new charger, OR know how to buy one? I cant find it anywhere online to buy! Of course the dealership isnt any help either.

What does the new charger look like? I have a holster for the old EVSE that you'd be more than welcome to have if it would work..

I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Thanks all, havent responded back been trying to find holder still. Basically its the holster that holds the the big controller box portion of the charger on a wall while charging, not a holster for the charging end while not in use.

It looks like the older one if yours is black with some blue writing on it, but wider I believe

The dealer handed me one when I bought my 2018 Leaf w/ charger package in September. It did not come in the car with the EVSE bag. The holder is made of steel, is heavy duty, and allows you to easily slip in/out the EVSE controller box. I tried looking for a 2nd one, just in case I wanted to mount one at a relatives house, but I had trouble finding it. I am holding off for now, until I really need it.

I am guessing that you want to a holder to easily slip the box in/out, and not necessarily a method to permanently wall-mount the EVSE . I looked around to see what caught my eye for making this a DIY project and came up with a few ideas:

======
1. Wall-mounted (wire frame) iron/ironing board holder, similar to:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076ZH77BT
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000PSFTVC

The wire frame should be strong enough to hold the box and allows airflow for cooling of the box when it heats up during charging.
I took measurements of the Nissan portable EVSE controller box (10-1/2"H x 4-1/4"W x 2-3/4"D) and realized that it measures very close to that of a typical iron (excluding the handle). The EVSE box, excluding cable, seems to weigh under 10 lbs.

2. Garage track system with hooks, similar to:

3. Garage PVC wall panel, similar to:

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Proslat-16- ... /203496106
Hooks
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Proslat-4-i ... /204743455

The EVSE box has four 3/16" ID holes on opposite corners, so 1/8" (std size) x 4" hooks should fit.

4. PVC pegboard with heavy duty hooks.
======

Also, I have my cable rolled up and hanging separately from this wall hook:
