Thanks, everyone - those comments were helpful. After reading everyone's thoughts and thinking more about it, this is what I'm leaning towards doing:
I rent the 2nd floor apartment in a three floor house. There's a detached garage in the driveway with working 120V outlets but some pretty old and suspect wiring. My original plan was to park in the driveway in front of the garage and just trickle charge on one of these 120V outlets since my work commute is only 11 miles one-way. But the garage seems like too much of a disaster (structurally it's in bad shape too), so I'd like to find a charging solution using the electricity in the main house. I was looking at the electric panel in my apartment, and I noticed that there's a 20 amp circuit breaker labeled "dedicated line" which connects to an unused outlet in a "bedroom" (more of a glorified closet in the New York area) that I also barely use. So I was thinking I could pay an electrician to run more 20 amp wire (encased in metal piping) from that unused outlet, down the outside of the building, and to either an exterior outlet in the driveway, or a hardwired EVSE in the driveway. The driveway is probably 30 feet down from my apartment. I'm actually leaning toward the hardwired option - getting a Clipper Creek LCS-20 installed on the outside of the main building, and having the electrician hardwire it to the 20 amp circuit coming down from my apartment. But if for whatever reason this doesn't work, my next choice would be the LCS-20P (plug-in version) with all the appropriate waterproof covering over the outlet itself. Does this sound like a good idea? I realize there are much faster L2 charging options, but the wiring on the dedicated circuit is only 20 amps and I'd rather not pay for a brand new circuit (especially since I don't own this place), hence the merely 16 amp EVSE. Do other people on MNL charge at 16 amps on a 20 amp circuit? This would be for a 2018 Leaf. I'd probably charge twice a week, between midnight and 8 am, for 6-7 hours at a time. Thanks.
