Anyone have experience with this charger ? http://www.amazon.com/Ebusbar-BEV-H02A1 ... 00TPSP760/

@ $299 it has to be one of the cheapest Level 2 chargers I have seen. Any reason not to go with this one? I would be charging a 2013 SV in my garage.

Thanks for the input. Also if you know of other cheap alternatives, I'd love to hear them.

You mean an EVSE. See http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 68#p332668 as to why this matters.

I've never heard of this brand before. If I wanted something cheap from a reputable brand, I'd got for something from http://www.clippercreek.com/ like the LCS-20.

Neither of these will enable charging at full L2 speed that a '13 SV is capable of as the EVSE will be bottleneck. To enable full L2 charging speed, you'll need a 30 amp EVSE or greater. (Anything above 27.5-ish or 30 amps will not make it any faster.)

Thanks cwerdna. The 30 amp tip points me in the right direction.
