Wouldnt make sense if it had a QC option and NO 6.6kw as well.


The earlier Leafs with QC had the 3.3 charger - the charger is bypassed anyway with QC - but they decided to make it a complete "Charge Package" and include the 6.6 onboard charger for the S.


Think I am getting confused again........sorry.

So QC doesnt = 6.6 kw charger all the time then on early ones like 2011?

So on this 2015 Im getting, it COULD not have the 6.6kw charger but could have the QC Port (which I know it does)?

Sorry, im confused now.,,, :|

At least it has ALL 12 bars. :D

2011 and 2012 Leafs have the slower charger, because the 6.6kw version was introduced in 2013. The S (also introduced in 2013) retained the 3.3 unless provided with the Charge Package. From 2013 on, as I wrote earlier, ALL SV and SL Leafs have the 6.6.

If you have the QC charger, then you have the fast 6.6 charger too.. No mystery.

Ahh so some come with both and you manually have to switch it to the highest kw which is the 6kw?

This is similar to my Volt I had, I think it defaulted to a lower amp of current and you had to switch it manually.

Of course in that Volt example, I'm talking of changing the amp.



The car goes strictly by current. It respects the J1772 protocol so the included L1 EVSE works but it will draw the full current at 120V if you let it. There is no switching involved.

So, I believe Gary is clear that his soon to be delivered '15 Leaf S has the 3.3kW, 6.6kW, and the QC port. As I referenced in an earlier post, I looked at the original window sticker on my '15 S and the Charge Package option included the 6.6 kW charger along with the QC port. I saw something on the window sticker that confused me. We always refer to the Level 1 charger as 3.3 kW, but on the window sticker it says that it is 3.6 kW. Can any of the experts explain the discrepancy? A link to a picture of my window sticker is attached.

You are getting several things confused. The onboard charger is both L-1 and L-2 capable. The total power used by it (input power) is 3.6kw, and the power it delivers to the pack (output) is 3.3kw.
