All US market '13 to '17 SV and SL come with 6.6 kW OBC. To get the 6.6 kW OBC on '13 to '17 US market S trims requires you get one equipped with the "charge package" that includes an upgrade to the 6.6 kW OBC and adds the CHAdeMO inlet.

(All '12 to '17 SL come with CHAdeMO inlet.)

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

I just fixed an mistake I made earlier. All S Trim Leafs with a QC port have the 6.6kw charger. Before 2013 there was no S, but all Leafs made then had the 3.3kw onboard charger.

I won’t be doing more than 40 miles a day usually anyway so charging it at home, even at 3.3kw is more than adequate. The only thing I’m a bit worried about is if I do plan on a day out and can only find normal speed points as I’ll be there 8hrs then waiting for a charge instead of 4

That is the main disadvantage of the 3.3 charger. I'm unclear: does your car have one charging port, or two...?

Well I called the dealer today as it’s still being delivered and asked him to double check and he looked on his systems and put the number plate on and said “no it’s definitely CHAdeMO and 6.6kw so they must have listed it wrong on the website”

Result !!

Went to see the car and it Is a 3.3kw version. Still having it anyway. Will probably me more than enough for my needs but if it does become an issue I'll do the DIY or pay someone to do it for me to take it to 6.6kw

The car cannot be a Leaf S with QC and a 3.3kw onboard charger. It can't be made after 2012, be an SV or SL, and not have the 6.6 OBC. I suggest you check again. Does it lack the second QC port?

EDIT: I had forgotten you are in the UK. I find it odd that they would have newer Leafs with 3.3 OBC and QC, but I can't say it's impossible...

Yeah in the UK. Definitely has the chademo but time remaining to charge only says one time. Doesn't say both which shows its 3.3kw :(

Sorry for confusing things, then! Nissan must have cheaped out on the OBCs in the EU, or at least the UK.
