I believe you meant V3, V2 was the 16A and V3 is 20A with adjustable firmware.

Sorry, correction, Rev3 is the new programable firmware for 2011-2013 regardless of the amp level. Rev 3 now applies to all models so you have 16A Rev3. There is no Rev1/Rev2 anymore.

The LCS-25 is NOT UL listed, but it has been tested to UL standards by Intertek and carries an ETL listing. It's possible LADWP will accept Intertek/ETL, but you'd better check with it. My research of code usually turns up verbage like "Must be listed by a national testing laboratory" or similar, which ETL is.

Re: Fast Low Cost Charging - EVSE Questions: Smart ED 120v E

Mon Jan 27, 2014 2:02 am

I see in this thread that several different 120v EVSE adapters included with the owners cars were tested against the Leaf 120v adapter. Is the Smart ED 120v EVSE compatible? Can this 120v EVSE be upgraded by EVSEUpgrade? Once I get the Juice Box that I ordered, I could send this for evaluation and possible upgrade. Though the Juice Box COULD be made portable, I intend to mount it in my garage and would prefer to have this EVSE upgraded.

I believe that Smart is using the Lear unit, which is not upgradeable. (Reason: Poor quality unit is marginally built, and we do not believe it can handle even what it's existing ratings specify for daily use.)

We do have a large number of extremely rugged original Nissan (Panasonic built) 2011-2012 units in stock (not shown on the website) that are for sale. They handle up to 20A (when equipped with an L6-30 plug) and are similar to these. We maintain a large number of "rolling stock" units in good condition for use with our Advanced Replacement program, and we are reducing stock now. Please contact us for more information.

I am a brand new Leaf leasee as of yesterday evening. I wanted to do the upgrade service with EVSE to the 240/30a, but there is info on their website that states that people who have received upgraded cords and are near the end of their lease with plans on returning their vehicle may be interested in switching the upgraded cord out with someone that has the 120v cord (obviously with some compensation to make up the difference). Is there a thread on this forum or some exchange website where people willing to do the exchange post their information? I'm getting nothing through Craigslist and eBay but maybe I'm not using the correct search terms.

No modified unit is UL approved. Even something as simple as adding a cord to a unit meant to be hard wired voids the approval unless the factory does it. Modified or built are not UL approved. This does not change the fact that they work great.

It is best to have an electrician install the proper socket. After it is inspected, then mount your EVSE. This means that the EVSE will not get any "green" credit.
