It's simply a charger upgrade... today I'd probably just fit three 3kW air-cooled brusa and configure them for either 16A three phase or 48A single phase which gives you ~10kW for ~£1500.

I'm probably going to run with that in my VW conversion while I wait for the universal AC/DC charger that we're developing :)

I did look seriously at the 22kW brusa but the very poor single phase performance (3kW limit) and hassle of yet another liquid cooled device took me down a different path.

Thanks Kevin, I am watching the conversion with interest.

Also I found the mini-QC topic on mynissanleaf.com that may be a cheaper/easier option in a year or two. Although it would probably be classed as an adapter when they fit it with a type 1 socket.

Do you guys think we'll see some/any/a few places specialising in this for used/experienced LEAF owners in the future? It'd be great if the cars can live longer with swapping out chargers and batteries, the engines and other parts seem very robust so far.
