I don't think there is anything simple about a connector swap on the Leaf with this thing. It just does not look like it would fit vertically under the current Leaf charge port door. A pigtail adapter might work but I think it would be a massive and expensive adapter. If the protocol does change hopefully all would be needed on the Leaf is a firmware update but I am not holding my breath.UhClem wrote:To me, it's more disturbing that it appears that the new SAE proposal uses a different signalling protocol than CHAdeMO, which means that a simple connector swap won't be enough to get the new stuff working with the LEAF.
