Re: Is there a DIY upgrade from stock Nissan 3.3kw to 6.6kw charger (from the uk)

Hi RNM,

I had just found that very same thread only a few hours before you thankfully posted a lin, thanks very much for the info and help.

It is very good to know that someone has indeed replaced a stock 3.3 with a stock 6.6 as a plug and play, it is very good info.
All i need now is a stock 6.6 in the EU or UK that is going for reasonable money and i will definately do it.

Thank you.

RNM

I will for sure.

I have messaged superleaf, just to ask if he has had any issues related to the change and if it's all still working fine.
I am hopeful it's a true posting, he hasn't been on here for a while.
I have spoken today to an ev specialist and spoke in depth about how this project, he's not to sure, apparently there are 2 software versions, one version clearly states 6.6 kW, so he tends to lean towards it not being able to be done, although if I find a charger we will try together.

I am on the lookout for a 6.6 kW power module charger, haven't found any yet, have seen a few in the USA but import duties and shipping pushes the price up to a point where the project becomes unaffordable.

Anthony.

Anyone personally know superleaf?

I have checked his profile and he hasn't visited the forum for many months, I have sent him a private message just to ask if the charger conversion is still k and operational before I jump in and try th conversion myself.
From all the forums I have read, superleaf appears to be the only one that has carried out this conversion where a stock 3.3 was changed and upgraded for a stock 6.6.


If anyone mows him personally or has his personal mail could you email him for me please and ask him if all is well with his conversion and report back, I haven't got access to his email details only his private message.

Many thanks

Anthony.

I just did the upgrade too. If you are interested I can share some photos. I have a 2013 Leaf and I bought the 6.6KW charger from US. It took me about 7 hours of work. The space is pretty restricted around the charger. It takes time.
