Thanks for the info. The reason I asked is that someone in another thread threw out an off-hand "$199" price and it didn't seem to make sense given what Ingineer charges for an upgraded cord.planet4ever wrote:The list price is (or at least was) $671 I thought you could get them from http://www.everythingnissan.com/ for "only" $508, but I can't find any LEAF accessories there now. If you are going to put out that kind of money I recommend spending $800 for one that has been upgraded so it can be used on either 120v or 240v: evseupgrade.com. That way you can plug in to electrical dryer outlets, 240v outlets at RV campgrounds, etc. and still use it anywhere you can find a normal electrical plug.
My plan was to use an upgraded cord at home and carry a stock cord in the car. I don't really need the speed of a 240V charge at home but I do need the ability to preheat the car, hence my interest in the upgrade. And getting a local electrician to install a 240V outlet next to the breaker panel in my garage would be trivial (240V dryer outlets aren't located in garages here in snow country so all my current outlets are 120V 15A).
