The Nissan Leaf charges through an industry standard J1772 connector. The car can charge at a maximum of 30A/240V via a third party EVSE. This allows the car to fully charge overnight. Earlier models (and up to current models with S trim without charging option) have a slower 16A/240V internal charger.
From 2016 model year on, the Leaf comes standard with CHAdeMO D.C. fast charging capability.
The Leaf also comes with a mobile EVSE that can charge at 12A/120V.
New for the 2018 model year! The 2018 model year Leaf comes with a much improved portable EVSE that has interchangeable plug adapters allowing it to plug into a 240V NEMA 14-50 receptacle and charge at 240V/30A, or plug into a regular household NEMA 5-15 receptacle and charge at 120V/12A.
