Now some of them were 11/12 and some were 13.
I initially found a 13 cheap (missed it) so I asked them if they could upgrade a 13 and would it work on my 12.
he said yes. it would be 6.6kw but of course my 12 would only draw 3.3kw. I thought that was great so I would already have 6.6kw EVSE for if and when I ever upgraded my car or got a new car later down the road.
he then mentioned they could do the 6.6kw upgrade to the 11/12 EVSE that it was no big deal. of course my car would still only draw 3.3kw but it would be 6.6kw capable.
fantastic. he said just send him my order number when I ordered and he would make the change.
name is Mark.
his reply to me
"If you upgrade your 2012 cord I can do the higher power upgrade with an L6-30 plug just like a 2013 model. If you have a 2013 cord I can do the same and they all work on every LEAF model. The 2011-12 cords will not work on a Tesla made product but most other EVs. "

"If your having that mich trouble with an evse upgrade"
I am unaware that I was having any trouble?? Seems pretty sime to me. Pay $287 send them the evse.

At 20 amps, the EVSE Upgrade is nominally 4.8 kW. I find this is quite enough at home, as I want to be nice to my battery.nerys wrote:Mark confirmed it is not a full 6.6kw just a bit more than 3.3kw or something like that. He saw the thread and realized the confusion in what he told me.
He never said it would do 6.6 just said he could do the higher power 13 upgrade on the 12 evse which I took to mean 6.6kw. So no big deal.
So its juice box if I get a brusa
I am wiring everything for 30amps to future proof a little
Can you explain rosewood dash? (Another thread or pm?)
