Charging a 2019 SV Plus at home with a NEMA 14-50 oulet

Sat Jan 04, 2020 11:07 pm

Hi Everyone!
I leased a 2017 SV leaf for 3 years, I returned it today and leased a 2019 SV plus.
My question is about charging it at home. I have a NEMA 14-50 outlet which is connected to a 50 AMP circuit. Can I connect the leaf to this outlet without any problem? how long does it take to fully charge?
thanks

Assuming that it came with the dual voltage Nissan charging cable, and that your wiring is compatible with the outlet and breaker, yes.

I have been using the outlet to charge my Tesla model 3.
I just realized that the charging bag doesn't have any 240 volt plug in it, just a normal 3 prong plug. Does the 240 volt plug come with the SV plus?

Any Leaf IIs with the Tech package (and all SLs) should have the dual voltage cable. You are either missing the 240 volt adapter or they swapped in the 120 volt unit and you need to get the correct one back.

My SV plus comes with tech pack, r u sure about it? I read only the SL plus comes with the dual voltage.
I guess a trip back to the dealer is on my plan tomorrow. I checked the price for the cable online, its about $1000.

And, specs tab of https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... -leaf-plus says "Portable charge cable (120V / 240V EVSE)" is standard on all (US) '19 Leaf Plus, regardless of trim level.

sako: The Nissan Leaf's dual voltage EVSE power plug is a 14-50 240v one (with a 5-15 adapter to allow 120v), so you seem to clearly have a Level 1, 120v only EVSE. I know because I bought a used Nissan dual voltage one from eBay about a year ago (for about $300, to have as a spare Level 2 mainly).

The cars Window Sticker should list the type and EVSE serial number that it came with.

When I bought my 2019 SL+ the dealer delivered it with an old used ESEV. After going around and around they ordered me a new EVSE but they were back ordered. So I negotiated that they give me an $850 check to compensate me. Then I bought one on eBay for $225. I have since bought a second one on eBay that I permanently leave connected at the barn at my vacation cabin and leave one in the car.

This seller https://www.ebay.com/usr/scionseven occasionally listed the 120/240v Nissan EVSE on eBay for around $250.

Here’s mine permanently mounted in the barn.

I have a 2019 SV plus with tech package. I have the NEMA 14-50 connector on the included charger and an adapter to take it down to a more standard wall outlet. My understanding is you should have the same thing.

To the original poster: have you tried gently pulling on the 120 volt plug? It may in fact be the 120 volt adapter, in place on the 240 volt plug...
