S model: Can have 3.3kW and no CHAdeMO or 6.0kW and CHAdeMO
SV model: Can have 6.0kW and no CHAdemo or 6.0kW and CHAdeMO
SL model Always has 6.0kW and CHAdeMO
Bingo! Looks right to me.

Yes but with one caveat: the EVSE (often mistakenly called a "charger") must also supply 6.6 kW, or 27.5 amps at 240 volts. A few public charging stations are only at 208 volts, and not 240.
If you use an EVSE supplying less than 6.6 kW, you won't be charging your Leaf at "full speed."
I find the 208v fed units usually supply around 5.5 kWh with some as low as 5kWh. But I also suspect that they can be limited by the installer according to the building service or owner's preference.
Guys, please get your units right.
The charging rate is in kW, not "kh" (not sure what the heck that is) nor kWh. Leaf has a 24 kWh battery w/~21 kWh usable and a 80 kW motor.
kW and kWh are very different metrics. It's the same as confusing gallons with horsepower. Think of kW = horsepower, kWh = gallons.
If one charges at 1 kW (or 1000 watts) for 6 hours, 6 kWh came out of the wall. If it's at 6 kW for 1 hour, it's also 6 kWh. If it's 1 watt for 6000 hours, it's also 6 kWh.
(BTW, 1 hp = ~0.746 kW. And, http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/evsbs.shtml
says 1 gallon of gasoline=33.7 kWh.)
