Re: [EVDL] j1772 necessity revisited, "Conspiracy against new EVs?

Willie,

You are going to seriously want 240v charging with the Leaf pack. Charging
up after a long run in that car will set you back a long time at 120v
charging.

A Tesla owner in NJ would take his Tesla down "the shore" on the weekends in
the summer and plug it in at 120v on Friday night and then unplug it Sunday
night for the trip home.

I personally went to 240v charging this year and really won't want to look
back. I'm also not going to pay high prices for doing so either.

Here is my set up.

The situation is well recognized and many in the Leaf community are
"opting out". I have. I will wait until something more reasonable
comes along before I move up to 220v charging.

The topic is well covered in numerous threads here:

I believe there are government subsidies for charging stations that are
supporting the high pricing.

Here in Texas, we are hoping for some January deliveries.

BTW, I'm up to over 14K miles (almost two years) despite many months in
the shop. About 4,000 KWH into and out of the battery. What might be
the lifespan of flooded lead? 2,000 KWH?

I'm REALLY looking forward to reliability in a Leaf.
