Good: low price, portable, easy to make adapters to fit different plugs, only requires 20 amp circuit(full 16a charging). Level 1, 240v upgrade only needs 15a circuit(12a charging). Truly universal charging that works on both 120v and 240v.
Bad: Must sent it in so no charging a couple days(mine took 8), could be an issue at end of lease but I think they will exchange for an original at no cost. Does not lend itself that good for permanent mount although some do and are happy.
Full service and warranty with installation services. Very reliable. Has holster.
Somewhat expensive especially the install. Available on ebay for self install or your own electrician.
Seems bulky and protrudes a bit more than needed from the wall.
Requires 40 amp circuit. Rated for outdoor use.
Standard is 18' cord but 25' cord seems to be available on request.
Look for this one on ebay for about $625
$950 + shipping

Portable and does have a mounting system but no cord hook. Adjustable to be usable on 15, 20, 30 & 40 amp circuits. Pigtail can be swapped to match the outlet you have. Adapters can be made for adapting to different plugs on the road.
Some report issues with not charging when Leaf timer is used. Rated for outdoor use.

Available at Home Depot for $999. Don't forget the mounting kit.
Only requires 20 amp circuit. Limited to 16 amp to vehicle which will charge current leaf at full speed. Future Leaf or other cars may accept more power in the future. It will still charge all just fine just at the 16 amp rate.
Semi portable with plug in pigtail. Wall plate mount would allow easy removal to a different location. Rated for outdoor use.
Seems a bit of an industrial look with the blue metal box. But fairly compact and low profile. Mounting plate has cord hook but no holster.
$799 shipped from Home Depot. Ordered mine today (9/23) HD says back ordered but they are now allowing the purchase.

Good price at $750. Nice coiled cord if that works for you. Have not seen this cord except on Voltec that is not available for Leaf owners.
Nice holster. This could give Schneider some competition. Cord listed at 24' is longest available.
This one is just 16 amps similar to Leviton 160. Great alternative if limited main power is available.

Looks portable but instructions indicate permanent mount. Different models for 15amp, 20amp & 25 amp circuits.
$995 on the website, outdoor rated. Cord length not specified.
I have only read problems with delivery(not) and non functioning product.
I recommend staying away from this one.
Probably some others
I own none of these BTW. There are individual threads on each.
(I now have the Schneider)
