Hi

I have recently had a 7kw (for future proifing) podpoint universal charging point fitted. I thought my car would limit the charge, but I'm getting 5.4kw charging?

The 3.3kWh is actually more like 3.6kwh. But as to 5.4kWh I wouldn't know.
Are you taking that power reading from a smart meter or something?

Typically a 24 kWh LEAF will have around 19 kWh of usable capacity, 19% of which 3.61 kWh so I expect there is nothing unusual going on if your car was a 24 kWh. I thought that all 30 kWh LEAFs had the 6.6 kW charger? Have you got a figure for your current battery capacity from LEAFSpy?

No Leaf30s with 6.6kW are unicorns

- Leaf 30 kWh

My 24kW has the 6.6 option. I didn't know it until i was on the way home, it wasn't advertsised as such, it was a pleasant surprise.

Using the 7kW charger at work can see approx 40% added in an hour (i even saw 50% once).

By constrast, granny charging at home adds approx 13.5% per hour.

My old 30 was just the lower rate charger.
Not worth the extra cost, especially on a PCP where the £1k extra was split across the term with no extra allowance on the GFV.

Set your trip computer to the estimated charge time display. Post photo here. Will look something like this:
