As to if there is an upgrade to the Nissan one? I believe the ONLY person doing it is ingineer. If you want to get in on the action then you need to figure out a better way and cheaper way to do the same thing. You up to that?
You only want a kit. Your not proposing innovation with this. There are plenty of other folks who do build EVSE's and ones you can get and put together yourself. They are not the hacked Nissan ones. They are wall mount units. If you need a take along EVSE then you could look at SPX and their portable unit that is a 240 unit. I have never had nor needed in the past two years to take my portable EVSE 240 unit for charging needs. I'd stick with the wall mount and if you really need a take along you can send in your Nissan one to get converted properly. It is business. It is not PERSONAL.
It's business for everyone on the mynissanleaf forum? I didnt think so. This is really driving me a bit. He has a monopoly over hte business and has boys backing him up. I just want to learn and test it out without spending money. I do this with everything. My phone, my laptop, led lights, whatever. I just want to know if there is a possible way to do this and if anyone is successful(other than the great ingineer) and how they have done it. It can't be business for everyone on these forums. It's business for less than 1% of the people on these forums.
Afterall this is the DO IT YOURSELF ELECTRIC CAR FORUM where people assist one another.
