2012 Nissan Leaf Japan Model 200VAC 15amp compatibility

Mon Apr 08, 2013 4:40 pm

Hi,

I've bought a 2012 Nissan Leaf Japan Model G and it's currently in transit to NZ. It comes with the 200VAC 15amp evse. Over here we have standard 240VAC. Can the 2012 leaf onboard charger take the 240VAC 16/32amp. I'm planning to use a 16A J1772 to 62196-2 Plug 3m Cable on my home charging station.

Regards,

Ron

Yes, the on-board charger is the same on cars shipped world-wide and is compatible with J1772 around the world, including your Mennekes to J1772 cable. It should handle 100v-240v.

Thank you, on the Japanese owner manual, under the charging system, they listed maximum power consumption: (AC100V), (AC200V).

I've looked at US model and it's showing maximum power consumption: (AC120V), (AC240V)

I don't want to damage the car onboard charging unit. YOu don't for see any problems with this?

Regards,

Ron
