Phil, This is important to me as it may be the deciding point between keeping my 2012 or trading in for a newer one once 6.6kw charges are ether standard or optional. This charger mod of yours, will you be offering that to us like the LeafSCAN and fan mod?
Phil has already said while he'll continue to provide EVSEUpgrade service this job would be far too much for him to handle and even then think about logistics. You can ship an EVSE to California but hardly an entire LEAF. And Phil did say he's looking at fleet sales and those would pay off better than one here one there type jobs and Phil does need to make a living so respect.
What I would say though between Phil's NDA with CHAdeMO and other many LEAF-based projects it'd be nice if he or someone else could write up some step-by-step instructions that one could take to someone local with the know-how of getting something like that done. My guess is the main issue is running new wire. I guess since it's 2 chargers like the Tesla Model S it may be he used 2 sets of lines since threading a second set next to the first may be easier than threading a new line. Personally, I'd like to know the how to not just for the potential to do the upgrade myself but to see if an even bigger charger can be fit with a wire run through the chassis. The free Blink may be nice but imagine charging my LEAF at 19kW on my ClipperCreek CS-100. No, wouldn't go that far but nice to see what it would take to do so. I think when you get that big your main concern is the size of the caps and stuff making the whole box too big to fit not to mention such a big charger being molto caro.
