After discovering that the Canadian Leaf's charge cable cannot be upgraded to 16A and a new US spec cable upgraded to 16A from Evseupgrade would cost $979 + $48 = $1027 + shipping, I decided to buy the SPX Power Express for $949 + $75 shipping to Canada. The SPX will allow me portability and future 6.6kw charging capability. It also has built-in GFCI and meets all regulatory requirements.

I may also do the "open source" mod to the Leaf cable but will see how it goes with the SPX first.
