so far i think not the sky is the limit but the thickness of the cable and its according law. the 16A iccb + cable is 2,5mm², the 32A mennekes - yazaki cable has 6,0mm² wires and i assume (one) 1 resistor that tells the outlet to charge at full power. i dont think there is a software change necessary at 04/2013+ leafs. maybe the numbers in the dash are missing but thats something i dont need because i dont sit in the car while charging. somebody should order THIS cable and give it a try: [url]http://www.ratio.nl/en/catalog/articles/5089/mode-3-type-2-to-1
[/url] charging time for a normal emptied battery should be under 3 hours. and we have thousends of 22kW typ 2 outlets in europe.

If looking at Nissan Leaf on the preowned market .. How can one identify which Leaf's have the 3.3 kw on board charger and which ones
have the 6.6kw charger installed?
