This is the upgrade service for the unit supplied with 2013 and 2014 North American Nissan LEAF. It requires a minimum 30 amp 208-240 volt outlet for high-power charging!

The Nissan-branded unit has been improved. Like its older sibling, this unit is also manufactured by Panasonic kitchen appliances division, well-known for quality products. Quality and reliability have not suffered despite the slimmer design, it is the most rugged and reliable portable unit available, and once upgraded it becomes auto-adjusting and can operate on almost any outlet type in the world using simple adapters. It's still fully portable, or you can easily mount it on a wall with the included mounting holes. You also get an advanced Anti-Theft security system and easily programmable amperage settings, so you can "dial it down" if you are on a limited power outlet, or you really want a "trickle" charge, say for example; in airport long-term parking.
With this upgrade, Your 6kW 2013-2014 LEAF can safely and efficiently charge at up to over 4 times faster than it did on the original unit when used on any 208-240 volt 30 amp outlet! This means you will see amazingly faster 3 to 5 hour typical charge times. The unit still retains the ability to be used on a standard household outlet*, and it then charges at up to 12 amps. The advanced programming feature allows you to set the charging speed, if desired, to as low as 6 amps in 1 amp increments, and the unit remembers its amp settings for both level 1 and 2 separately.
*optional 120v Adapter is required for charging on standard wall outlets!
