I took possession of my 2018 Leaf at the end of 2020.
The plan had been to FIRST have a local electrician extend the 230V 30A circuit from the laundry area of the garage to a point over the garage door, THEN buy a United Chargers Grizzl-E (with the DIP switch factory set to max out at the 24A rate), and THEN take delivery on the car.
But my sagging old rust-bucket of a 1998 Camry was failing fast, and before the electrician could get to me, I had to take it out of service and get a rental by mid-December. And (although I didn't know it yet) the Edison rebate program was set to end at the end of the year.
So the new power socket didn't get installed until Christmas Eve. I put in the order for the Grizzl-E as soon as I had a power socket, but it took 2 weeks to arrive.
I showed up at the Nissan dealership where the neighbors' kid is a service writer, looking for a 2017 with a CD player. They had a 2018 with a CD (something I didn't think even existed!) in inventory, and it was even in my preferred color.
I took delivery on it while still waiting for the Grizzl-E, and spent a week charging it in Level 1 mode, with the portable charging unit.
The Grizzl-E looked good on paper, and it's even better in real life: the plug-hook is a separate piece, so I can run the cable out to the driveway with the unit mounted inside the garage; no front-panel controls to accidentally bump; no smartphone interface that could be hacked. A monument to the KISS principle.
It's nice to drive something with some pick-up, for a change. But there's still that puzzling pop-up that shows up on the display screen for a few seconds at power-up, just after the splash-screen.
I will note that this actually isn't the first electric vehicle I've driven. Just the first that didn't cut ice
. (The 550 was Zamboni's first production electric model, powered by two big Exide Loadhog forklift batteries. If the batteries were over about a year old, a charge was good for one
ice cut. And neither of the two I drove had nearly as fancy a paint job as the one shown on the link)
