How much does the heater reduce the battery in the winter?
If I want to charge, for example at Kennebunkport North, with a Level 3 charger, do I need to have a certain type of connector on my car? I get the impression J 1772 is common but don't know if this limits what it can be hooked up to. I need to make sure prior to buying one that it has the hardware to fit the needs).
This is called commonly called CCS. (Only people on this forum still insist on calling it "frankenplug"). New non-Tesla DCFC stations being installed generally have multiple CCS connectors and 1 CHAdeMO connector. The only EV for sale in North America still using CHAdeMO is the LEAF; every other non-Tesla EV uses CCS.
When you buy a new Leaf, the Nissan dealer should provide you with a new card for use on their "No Charge to Charge" program. This program allows you to setup accounts with the various charging station network providers, and have the accounts all on that one card. You will also get 2 years of free charging sessions with this program. However, the network provider EVGo -- typically has charging stations located at the malls -- is no longer participating in the program, so you will have to pay to use their charging stations.
It ended already? I just got mine last year. Thanks for the update.LeftieBiker wrote: ↑Fri Sep 20, 2019 2:26 pmJust to be clear: the "No Charge to Charge" program has ended. You may be able to use remaining vouchers to set up charging accounts as described above, but you won't get any free DCFC sessions from it. I still runs another...8 months?...for those already enrolled, but there is no new enrollment.
