Brusa charger in my LEAF

I don't understand the point of this. Wouldn't any commercial EVSE be able to charge at 16Amps? Or does this allow you to plug two 240v 10A cords in? Them you have the risk that both are on the same circuit (very likely in a house) and trip the circuit breaker. From a point of view "I did it", it i...

ChargePoint McDonalds Dural

Ultralights, charging for electricity by Kwhr is only permitted by energy retailers-no one else, hence charging by time or the alternative business model of charging the customers a monthly fee to access a network, as is the case OS.

I'm Working on getting more ChargePoints into McDonalds. There may be 1 more in the pipeline shortly.
What would EV owners be prepared to pay for a DC (CHAdeMO/CCS) 80% charge. $5,6,8,12?

I bought a ...... Leaf!

I got a quote for a 40,000 service for my LEAF on Friday ($321.00). When I asked what would be done in the service they said "I don't know ". I Checked the service manual and it was just a few inspections and a HV battery check. Looks like daylight robbery to me.

Both of my key fobs are not registering by my LEAF. I Figure it is just a flat battery in both fobs, but I can't see any way of replacing the battery. Has anyone replaced theirs before and can advise me how it's done.
