Well, the spec says pin 2 should be neutral, so somebody thought it mattered.

A L1 EVSE has one lead connected to ground ( neutral). A device called Quick220 takes two AC outlets in opposing phases to generate 240VAC. It is limited in current due to the breakers. 16A is very doable with 20A breakers and nothing else on the circuits. Otherwise 12A fits into 15A circuit. 12A is the NEC recommended max for a 15A circuit.

The EVSE should be set to match the circuit. Otherwise an enhanced Leaf will blow the breakers at 27.5A.

There is a thread about converting your stock EVSE into a dual voltage unit. The EVSE runs on 120VAC but the car sees 240A at 12A. That makes it twice as fast as stock.
