I just got my new Juicebox Pro 40 today and tried it out. My 2015 6KW Leaf was charged up to about 89% when I started charging and after about 45 minutes, I decided to go in the car and see how much % charge remained. It was stuck on 98% for the longest time - maybe 10 minutes. Is this normal ?
The behavior you describe is normal when charging to 100%. It can take maybe an hour from around 95 or 96% on the dash display until the car stops.
On 2013 to (AFAIK) 2017 Leafs, when the car's near full, you'll see a taper then usually 3 bounces, sometimes 2, see viewtopic.php?p=490435#p490435
If one charges to 80% (the option was removed on model year 2014+ US Leafs), power is cut abruptly. There's no ramp down nor bounce.

First off, the OP bought an EVSE, NOT a charger. See viewtopic.php?p=262630#p262630
. J1772 (for L1 and L2 AC charging) EVSEs have no knowledge of the state charge of the battery. It doesn't "protect" the battery since it know nothing about it. The car's on-board charger (not the EVSE) is doing the ramping down.
Please see https://openev.freshdesk.com/support/so ... -sae-j1772
. The EVSE tells the car the max amperage it can draw via pilot signal and the car is supposed to obey and draw no more than that.
