Nissan Leaf Gen 1 Charger & Guide NZ
What sort of charger should I get for my Nissan Leaf Gen 1?
We have put together a quick Nissan Leaf Gen 1 Charging guide.
The majority of the imported Generation 1 Nissan leaf’s will use a Type 1 or J1772 EV charger. There is the odd exception if your leaf has been imported from Europe then it could be a Type 2 connector. Have a quick look at our plug guide if you are not sure.
The original OEM Japanese chargers are not compatible with New Zealand’s voltage so these should be replaced.
We recommend using the 8A plugin Leaf charger as it will suit most users and allow a full charge overnight. The three pin plug in 8A charger will charge a Generation one leaf from 20% to 80% charge in around 8 hours. Unless you have the 30kWh leaf then you might consider getting the 16A.
For Faster charging at home you can use the 16A Leaf EV charger with the Blue Cee plug.
