Will be interesting to test.
I saw/read (can't remember if it was a video or webpage and can't find it again now of course) someone who did some testing and I believe he even graphed it with his Leaf and 3.3kW charger.
While it did peak over 5 at time, I believe (man, I wish I had bookmarked that) he saw that if he let it preheat for a full 30 minutes(I think), it would drop back under 3.3 and top the battery back off....
Less that that tho, and he did lose battery....
I'll see if I can find it again..
(Although as long as it doesn't put me out of range, it might be worth a bit of a hit to the battery)
