Charging Options

Every Nissan Leaf comes with a charging cable that can be used to charge the car from a domestic power point. However this will only charge the car at 10 A meaning to completely recharge, the process may take up to 14 hours (30 kWh models). Unfortunately there is currently no option to purchace a charging station with the car, but that's where JET Charge comes in. 

The Wallpod is a perfect charging station for charging the Nissan Leaf at home. It can offer charge rates of up to 27.5 A for the Nissan Leafs type 1 plug which will have the car fully charged in only 5 hours (30 kWh models). This will ensure the batteries are full every day and will eliminate and anxiety about charging range.
