Note: Recharging on 110V takes an extra 20%
from the wall than 220V because of system
overhead of the car.

Trickle charging with 110VAC/12A on a Leaf
is quite inefficient compared to 220VAC/30A
because the Leaf has a system overhead of
300W when charging.

300W Overhead / 1300W Input = 23% Loss
300W Overhead / 6600W Input = 4.5% Loss

Conversion TimeDrove it home from Ohio - 23 hour drive with
9 charging stops on the way.
Conversion Cost$12,000 used
Additional FeaturesA laminated card with chart showing miles range vs. % SOC
because the estimated range on the dash is ALWAYS wrong (Leaf
overestimates it's range - I'd run out on EVERY trip if I went
by the dash board estimated range remaining!).
