    Not charging from J-1772 with adapter

    I agree, it should work with Access Control set to "All Vehicles". I'm not sure you should use the app to try hacking it yourself, though. The property owner might be upset. You'll need the password on the packaging/manual for the HPWC itself to use the app or browser-based login, I believe...

    Can't charge my phone in my 2016 Leaf?

    I put one of these from Amazon (with a QC3,0 chipset) in my Prius V, and it's great. I haven't really needed the voltmeter, but the fast charge has been really nice. The Toyota one even fits in place of one of the blank switches, and a plug set to go in-line with the cigar lighter without...

    Can't charge my phone in my 2016 Leaf?

    So far I have only seen these 12V dash outlets in 201x Japanese cars fused at 10A (2010 Sentra, 2015 Prius V, 2015 Leaf). The additional one in the rear of the Prius V is also 10A. That's 120W. Maybe the receptacle itself could be rated at 600W, but I think that's unlikely for cars that...

    Can't charge my phone in my 2016 Leaf?

    Yep, it's not impossible... the USB-A port on the center console, which allows the iPod interfacing, is driven by the head unit of the stereo. It could legitimately deliver as little as 500 ma (0.5A) by default under USB 2.0. In comparison to 1.5A or 3.0A defaults of later standards...

    Can't charge my phone in my 2016 Leaf?

    In my 2015 S I use a 12V "cigar lighter" adapter to USB, and my phone charges fine (1-2A). If I just plug it into the USB port, not much charging occurs. I've read there might be USB connectors for charging in the back seat (rear of console) but I don't know what trim package or years that...

    Tesla Gen1 EVSEs and J1772 Adapters with 2015 S - RESOLVED

    As some of you have read, I have been struggling with using NACS->J1772 adapters with the local city-provided Tesla NACS EVSEs. The J1772 EVSEs of the same vintage work fine. All the city's devices were installed in 2020 and are the the same basic vintage. As best I can determine, they all...

    Charging and Climate Control Timers 2015 S

    Reminder: 2015 Leaf S, so no start timer settings, just end timer settings. So. I set the Charging Timer to 9:00, the Climate Timer to 8, I think. I've been having a hard time navigating the Climate Timer. The car was connected but no charging current was being drawn. Checked the car at 6:30...

    Charging and Climate Control Timers 2015 S

    Great info! But one thing that makes the base trim more complicated is that we can only set the end times of the charging and climate kickoffs. I also don't know if there is an adjustment in the charging timer to compensate for the difference in charging time with a degraded battery, when it...

    Just Bought a Used 2016 Leaf S With Less than 12,000 Miles

    Which new battery? I'm envious of your 12 bars... I do notice that greentec batteries have a disclaimer that the 40KWh battery has a caveat: "Will be reset to full 12 bars capacity, we anticipate 1-2 bars to diminish quickly", but no definition of "quickly" or whether the initial 12 is...

    Charging and Climate Control Timers 2015 S

    Minimal. I am mostly trying to figure this out. Worst case is 35 miles total. I can deal with plugging in every alternate day. Also, I won't have extreme heat in the morning here in Williamsburg, over the next several months, but I would like to try to warm the cabin in the winter months.

    Charging and Climate Control Timers 2015 S

    I know this is a pretty frequently asked question, but I can't quite figure out the answer. Let's pick a time: 8:00 a.m. and I want to have both charging and climate... and not to push the battery above 80%. 1) Assuming ideal 24KWh battery and ideal Level 2 (6 KW charger on board), how would...

    Tesla Destination EVSE and J1772 adapter

    Weirdly, I saw a check-in comment on PlugShare: "Teslas were using the j1772 chargers but an adapter works fine on the Tesla chargers" This was at a site I have tested before with my adapters.... went back and it still behaved the same with no charging. Turns out these are Gen1 chargers and...

    Should we buy this 2016 Nissan Leaf?

    There was a specific recall last year, on 2023 models, totalling about 700 cars It might be that some of the oldest ones had cylinder leakage just from age or old fluid not being changed.

    Recommend Tesla to J1772 adapters?

    This is my progress so far on the same topic. I think I am recommending the Stoke Voltaics E=KITE at the moment. https://mynissanleaf.com/threads/tesla-destination-evse-and-j1772-adapter.35649/page-2#post-645374 The utility of this item depends a lot on the setup of the Tesla EVSE

    Should we buy this 2016 Nissan Leaf?

    The generic ways to check for brake master cylinder leaks include looking below the master cylinder reservoir for accumulated grime (vs. the surrounding "engine compartment") and checking the feel of the brake pedal for softness or extra travel, and for smoothness (doesn't "hang up"). You do...

    Should we buy this 2016 Nissan Leaf?

    Dealer rustproofing is generally considered a revenue source for the dealer and not an actual benefit for the end user, so I'd just disregard that. Does salt spray cause a noticeable rust issue in Hawaii? I'm guessing you don't salt your roads... All the normal stuff should be checked...

    Tesla Destination EVSE and J1772 adapter

    Progress so far, results except for exact configuration info. A friend with a Gen 3 Tesla Wall Connector let me try the NAC to J1772 adapters I bought and couldn't use in our public access county chargers. I charged through all three!! So they work with an open Tesla Gen3 Wall Connector. To...

    Considering a 2015 Leaf S

    I have a directly comparable car, with 11 bars and the SoH 80.5% according to LeafSpy. It has a usable 75 mile range FOR ME but I spend a lot of my driving at 25 and 35 mph. I did get down below the dash's range remaining readout when I drove it home from the private owners place about 53...

    Tesla Destination EVSE and J1772 adapter

    My quest now is to find a single Tesla Wall connector or Destination Charger in my area that *is* set up to work with non-Teslas... just so I can see which (if any) of the 3 (!) adapters I now have work.
