Also, I would guess that the estimated time is off a bit due to the fact that Japan has 100V/200V supplies. Additionally, some parts of Japan are 50 Hz while others are 60 Hz, which would also throw off the estimates. That of course assumes that Nissan didn't bother to adjust the software estimates based on the different supply voltages in each market and instead based everything off of Japanese supply voltages (and possibly 50 Hz frequency too).
Thanks for the reply. It has changed since my question; now it shows a lesser time for 240 6.6 vs 3.3 240 by a few hours.
Kinda confusing but Im getting to know my Leaf each day

If I needed fast charging Tony Williams company makes an L3 adapter but for me it is a waste of money.
The other day I called up a company for an adapter question not knowing about the company.
So this guy answers: "Hey this is Tony." (He didnt say this is so and so company, I got confused) So I go, "Oh sorry I got the wrong number".
It was Tony Williams and then I started going on and on about the Leaf and battery issues and why Nissan opted for air cooling but we got on track as to why I called. LOL.
I told him I appreciated his work and input on MNL even though I was just lurking here back in 2012 and opted for a Volt> Leaf at the time due to all the negativity then, with the battery.
