Morning All,

Picking up a 201 7 30kwh Black Edition on Saturday. Does not have the optional 6.6kwh onboard charger which doesn't bother me as mainly charging at home.

A question regarding public charging, can I plug in using a t1 > t2 charger to a 7kw charging point and just receive charge at the lower rate? I presume the car will self regulate?

Cheers

Yes

More tech, the point advertises what it is capable of (3.6,7.2, 11,22 kW ) the car will then draw the lower of its capabilities and the points capability.
Hopefully you will get a T1-T2 cable with the Car for use on public points.

Since your type 1 Leaf ( all Leaves) only charges via single phase, the EVSE will just advertise the maximum single phase current available

I've got the 6.6 on board and at the free pod points I get a very repeatable almost exact 0.1kw per minute or 6kw per hour. That only drops away near the top end of SoC. So I'm guessing you will similarly get a bit less than your posted figure.

If you have 3.3kW onboard charger, that’s what the car will charge.

The only way to charge faster is to use DC rapid.
