Not quite yet. We're talking about replacing the on-board charger (OBC, thing that converts mains electricity to the battery voltage, slow-charging the battery off of your home mains or J1772/Type 2 charging points). If this can be generalized, i.e. if we can find a way to retrofit pretty much any charger to the Leaf, this can open up a lot of opportunities. In this case we're just talking about replacing a broken charger with an aftermarket one, but the same procedure could be used to e.g. add three-phase charging to the Leaf or even retrofitting CCS and higher power charging.
