All this preamble aside I'm just looking for general advice especially in the Christchurch area, oh and if wanted to use the charger that my family in Oxford has installed (one of these https://emotorwerks.com/store/residential/juicebox-pro-40-smart-40-amp-evse-with-24-foot-cable) what would be involved for a leaf?
The NZ Ioniqs seem to have a type 2 plug, whereas that EVSE says it has a type 1. The LEAF has a type 1, so all you need to do is check which plug type their car has.
They are using a Type 2 plug, so I would need an adapter cord, which go for about $300. But would any leaf benefit from that charger or only if they have the 6.6kw option?
Leaf would benefit from that as it could then charge at 16A rather than the 8-10A of a standard plug (doubling the speed=half the time)
