Re: Lowest charge wattage possible?

Just trickle charge using the stock EVSE and the 120V or 240V receptacle of the portable power bank you've just bought. The extender pack that Muxsan sells looks like a well designed product, but there's no way you can DIY anything close to that good of a range extender.

Save your money and be content with the solution you've already purchased. Honestly, it's really unlikely you'll ever use it for charging your LEAF as the car gives plenty of warning before you reach turtle mode.

Re: Lowest charge wattage possible?

This product seems very capable and reasonably priced too, based on all that it can do:

The TT30 receptacle is rated for 25A, so a 120V adjustable EVSE could safely demand 20A, which would provide 2.4 kW EV charging. With a 4.5 kWh capacity, that would be almost 2 hours of charging at that rate.

3000W inverter (continuous) is pretty sweet too, as is the built-in 1500W MPPT PV controller.
