You have to upload the photo to an image site like Imgur.com and then copy the link code they provide and paste it into a message here.

OK
I am not a techie guru, so the numbers above will have to suffice for now, but that is all the info from the decal. Hope that helps.

My info added in bold in the appropriate places when different. If nothing added by me means same.

Quite the difference in SN...

My style number is quite easy to decipher

I continually get the "fault" icon coming up on the charger regardless of how many times I hit the reset button. I haven't had a problem with non-Eaton chargers. It's very frustrating since charging at work for free was one of my buying decision points. I really like the Leaf but having it not be compatible with certain chargers is definitely a problem. I see older Leafs using the same chargers with no problem, so it seems like the 2018s have an issue.
Update:
So on a whim last week, because I had recently noticed that all 4 chargers were working (one had been non-functional for years), I plugged in my 2018 Leaf and it charged without the fault icon activating! I was very happy and thought that perhaps the units (or my car) had received some sort of update. The next day, the fault icon came up right away on 3 of them; I don't even know what made me try the fourth one but, lo and behold, when I did, it worked - charged to 100% with no problem! This morning, the first one I tried worked fine - charged to 100%.

I called the guy in charge of the EVSEs and he told me there had been no upgrades and there won't be since Eaton is no longer in the EVSE business. It turns out the unit that had stopped working was replaced by a unit from another location (the other location got Clipper Creek models). So, bottom line is I don't know why sometimes the Eaton chargers work with the 2018 Leaf and sometimes they don't. My advice would be not to rely on them for your charging needs, but be pleasantly surprised if you're able to top off at an Eaton.

Free chargers at work was the main driver for my decision to buy 2019 Leaf. All of the chargers are Eaton and none are working. Took them to dealer and they tried it on their L2 chargers (non-Eaton) and refused that there is nothing wrong with the car... even after I told them I see at least 8 Leafs (older models) at my work that are charging fine. They told me to contact Eaton!!
I am stuck now. Did I get a lemon? :cry:

Not exactly a lemon. If you read through this thread you'll see that there's an incompatibility issue with Eaton EVSEs and 2018 and newer Leafs. The main problem seems to be that the Eaton EVSEs are no longer reveiving software updates because the manufacturer is no longer in the EVSE business. Basically, the car and the EVSE aren't communicating well sometimes because software needs to be updated in the EVSE.

Not sure about that. Posted earlier that my 2018 does not have any problem with the 3 Eaton chargers at my local train station so maybe some 2018's not working with Eaton charging stations.
