Wow Mike - that was quick! I see you're having a 220 outlet installed. Are you doing the EVSE upgrade? This is by far the lowest cost solution for L2 charging (220v). Don't worry about the fact that you're modifying a piece of leased equipment. If Nissan won't take the cable back, EVSE Upgrade will exchange it for a non-modified cable, or someone will gladly trade you for their brand new cable.

Get online and sign up with:
Chargepoint
https://na.chargepoint.com/home
Blink
http://www.blinknetwork.com/

So far, I'm still only using the supplied L1 charging cable. Last week I never plugged in at my house - did all my charging at work until Friday, where I used an L2, 2 hours at Fred Meyer for 2$.

Oh, and here you can buy color match side protective molding for about $125 shipped:

Here's mine:

Steve, you just saved me about $500 with the EVSE Upgrade referral. I was about to buy an $800 charging station. Thank you! I just placed my order to upgrade my cable. I send them my 110 v. cable, they wave their wand, transform it to 220 v. then send it back

I'm signed up with Chargepoint (which has several stations at the library near my house.) I should probably sign up with Blink, too.

Thanks for molding tip.

I like my car!!!!

Yep - they're fun cars! Which color did you get?

I'm getting great info from this forum:

Oh, and after your rear bumper gets scuffed up from pulling things out of the hatchback, you'll want one of these:

From my perspective you're a couple of magicians.

Hi, Tom,

Are you coming to the Luau? When? I'll be going over Friday afternoon & setting up. I'll pick up a keg on the way. Tom H. went over Saturday & put up his awning & tent.

Anyone else want to check it out Saturday? PM me for info & directions.




I'll be there, Mike. See you this afternoon.

Nice, Doug. I like the dense red borders in the bottom and elsewhere.

Great job Doug!! You certainly caught all of it.
It was nice meeting you at spring Camp Delaney.
How did those shots come out, with all the wind shaking things up?

Fortunately, the weather was in a "typical" pattern, which meant the wind died down after dark.
