    2012 leaf charging at Tesla super charger

    Gerry is correct regarding the Supercharger network. However, do you mean charging from a Level 2 Tesla charger? An adapter that accepts the Tesla plug that converts to a J1772 plug will work. The Leaf’s onboard charger limits the amount of power that is drawn. For the 2012, it will be either...

    upgrade question

    That “combination” unit would need to have a relay so that if one 5-15 plug was connected and the other was not, it would not energize the other plug. If it could, it would be unsafe.

    I may be selling a Brusa with its mounting plate and the LeafDD controller. My 2011 was involved in a collision a couple of days ago and will probably be totaled. I will post information after disposal of the car is decided.

    Could the smell be from hot plastic? Check the J1772 plug and receiver for signs of overheating, burn marks, deformation, etc. If nothing looks amiss, start a charging. After 15 minutes or so, check for noticeable heat at the J1772 connection, the EVSE and the wall socket (if it is a plug in...
