Yes, I posted the price on several threads here along with other components. I heard some silly excuses that Nissan engineers told someone as to why it was not larger, based on the comments for changing from the original 6.6 back to 3.3 I would say they need to find a more competent supplier as the reason indicated poor engineering excuses VS anything to do with the pack or cost. Too bad we can't upgrade even when a 6.6 comes out without rewiring the car.

They COULD offer a "6.6 kW" direct replacement, but several months back Nissan indicated that they had found a smaller, less expensive "6.6" unit, and that they hoped to fit it into the front of the LEAF.

Well, at this point given my current lack of at-home charging while I wait for My PU to install my new meter, thus being limited to only trickle charge plus the no-rule-against-it-but-don't situation at work I can tell you quite straight between having to wait 3 hours at a Nissan Dealership just for enough charge to get home and having to leave my car at @MOMsOrganicMrkt last night, walk home in the bitter cold carrying my groceries, including a full-sized Watermellon, an hour march to the house, then another hour march today before 6am to pick up my CO2 Fre LEAF all because I lost an hour of charging due to a GFCI fault at the ChargePoint unit meaning there wouldn't be enoug time to fill the pack sufficiently so that the remaining trickle charge at the house would fill the pack to 100% by 5am while still getting a sufficient night's sleep, all I can say is:

My LEAF needs a f#^*% 6.6kW Charger!!!
RIP CO2 Fre, 27 months, 42,282 mi & 11 bars.

Yikes... sounds awful and about as much fun as fire ants.

Have you no neighbor who might let you plug in (for a fee) for an entire night on their power? I guess I don't understand your situation well enough, but you certainly have my sympathies.

I am blessed to work for the best company to work for in the US, and the #2 multinational company in the world (according to the "best places to work institute"). We are to have a couple of L2 EVSEs (GE??) installed this week at our newest building (a mile walk for me, but there you go). We will be able to have a 4 hour charge window, free to us (I found out yesterday). That new building's parking lot is wired to accept 10 L2's eventually. They are looking around for ways to retrofit older buildings' parking lots (I'm in one from the 90s - state of the art at the time, but nobody was thinking about wiring parking lots back then).

I think I am the only employee in our NC headquarters to own a Leaf. A guy in our company in Texas owns a Volt.

The non-policy policy at your work just sounds stupid (but you don't need me to tell you that). :?

I would have ditched the watermelon.. perhaps its time to get a folding bike for the back of the Leaf.

I recommend you only buy compact Japanese square watermelons. Perhaps that's what Nissan wants? ;)

+1 for square watermelons. They fit much better in the refrigerator!
