Re: New Leaf 22kw home charge?

Yeah. It is, for better or worse...

I'm not sure what are good UK Leaf forums but heard of I've heard of SpeakEV and Leaf Talk.

What does irk me when I've poked around in the latter (very rare) is some folks there (just like here) mix up and misuse kW vs. kWh. They'll use the wrong units (e.g. incorrectly using kW to talk about battery capacity or energy dispensed when they meant kWh; incorrectly use kWh to talk about charging rate when they meant kW). Unfortunately, when folks persist on doing that, their credibility, strength of their argument and knowledge level (in my eyes) takes a hit.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

There is a 25KW DC charger for home use. Expensive. I make no recommendations as to its use -- much too expensive for me. ... 57MS51Q0K3

That is a "SAE DC combo" unit, not for Leaf.
Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

New Leaf supports single phase charging at 32A, 7kW. Your Type2 3-phase-ready EVSE will charge Leaf at full power.
Be sure your house/apartment main fuse (contract based limitation) supports 3x32A.
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW
