Re: My new Juicebox Pro 40 seems to take a lot longer time to charge than Nissan's Aerovironment

I really know nothing about the JuiceBox but the OpenEVSE defaults to 16A. It might be that the JuiceBox was set lower than the 30A Aeroenvirement unit. With OpenEVSE it is a menu item to set the current. On the basic JuiceBox units I built it was a pot. I think on the deluxe units it is done through wi-fi. As I said I am ignorant of the current JuiceBox's

Loved the VW but it sat too low for my old body
Back to a Cirrus White 2017 B250E

Right, the JuiceBox can be set to limit the charging current. Set it to at least 28A if you want to maximize for your Leaf, and use 32A if you also have an EV with a 7.2kW charger.
