Can you use it with Nissan Leaf?
No and yes. For Level 1 (120-volt) and Level 2 (240-volt) EV charging, all EVs in North America use the industry standard J1772 connector – except for Tesla which uses a proprietary connector. Therefore, a Nissan Leaf can use any home charger available today except for the Tesla units. However, when it comes to DC fast charging, which is public high-speed charging, the Leaf uses a CHAdeMO connector, which is different than the connector most other EVs use called the Combo plug.
Are home car chargers expensive?
A less powerful, portable Level 2 charger can be had for under $200 — like this Duosida model for $180 — while more premium portable options get closer to $400, due to having longer cables, higher power outputs, and useful features like integrated displays.
This 240-volt, $400 charger from Blink Charging offers a good range of features, including an 18-foot, integrated cable, compact design and Wi-Fi. It works with electric cars from all manufacturers, including Tesla, and has a delay-start motion to ensure your car only starts charging once electric rates are cheaper at night.
Wall-mounted chargers generally fall in the $400 to $500 region, with some options approaching $700 or even $1000 for this model from Bosch.
