Hi there Leafers,
I'm using the standard EVSE from Nissan which came from the prior owner, purchased with the quick-charge upgrade. This thing looks brand new and the installation screws were still in the package. I have a 2018 LEAF S with the optional quick-charge package installed.
I'm using a 120v outlet for trickle charging. By my estimates, assuming 24 hours to charge from 0-151, I should get 6 miles per hour. However, over the course of many hours I'm only seeing 1 extra mile added to range, from 64 to 65 (so it's not like I'm trying to charge to 100% and seeing a plateau).
Any ideas? I want to try a different outlet, but this would require an extension cord as it's blocked by the storage cabinet that came with the garage when I bought the place.
I'm working on getting a Level 2 charger installed (collecting bids). If anyone knows a great installed in the Santa Clarita area (for a townhome, challenging install), I'm all eyes.
Any ideas? Is it safe to use an extension cord for a bit just to see if I can see a difference? I have a heavy duty one for garage use, but I don't know its exact specs.
