Has anyone measured the power factor on LEAF charging on 240v?
1 bar lost at 21,451 miles, 16 months.
2 bar lost at 35,339 miles, 25 months.
LEAF traded at 45,400 miles for a RAV4-EV
RAV4 traded in for I-Pace Dec 2018

All those high power, high cost generators are great, but note that the OP wants to carry it in the boot of the LEAF and take it out to use. No trailer.
All electric - red LEAF, green Tesla S. No ICE.

Honda briefcase generator. 12 amps at 120 volts. Yamaha makes one that pretty good, too.
