Hmmm ... it would make sense the answer to the following is yes: is the "other" car's and the LEAF's 120V EVSE fully-interchangeable ? Making it a "commodity" item ... ripe for third-party market offering other "features" ?
Somewhat related: using the 120V EVSE ... is it still possible to pre-heat and -cool the car while it's plugged in ? ( On the Tesla it appears that compressor-cooling of the battery pack does not happen on 120V. )
I would think so, but it might run the main pack down a bit, as it's getting much less amperage, still it will be better than the car not connected at all and pre-warming/cooling.
and, I bet there are only 1 or 2 Japanese companies making these 120V L1 EVSE's, and I bet they will all look the same, and are interchangable as well, since it's a standard. Bet the Leaf, Volt and Plug-in Prius, could use each others with no problem...
