Is it possible to upgrade the current standard (slow) charger to the onboard fast charger?
I know of two ways, to install the BRUSA Charger - http://www.brusa.eu/no_cache/en/news/news/article/reduce-the-charging-time-of-your-nissan-leaf.htmlIs it possible to upgrade the current standard (slow) charger to the onboard fast charger?
If you have a UK / European spec Leaf with the extra daytime running bulbs in within the front fog lights then it is really easy to convert these to LED and they look great!When are the LED headlights going to be available as an upgrade for the accent, have been told they are coming soon by dealer when I bought the car?
I would be interested in trying this in an old high mileage Prius gen3 which is well out of warranty.On the flip side from Paul ( ) I hooked up a 5kw DC-DC "charger" in my old Prius to pump power from a (mains charged) lithium pack into the 230v nimh hybrid pack.
I thought you were clear enoughI am unsure if I was clear, nissan offer the 6.6 kW on board charger as an upgrade for new, I was hoping this could be done as an upgrade after purchase,
Back in 2010 it cost about £2.5k, and I could get over 100mpg (the vehicle readout tops out at 99.9), and across about 10,000 miles it averaged I think 92mpg. The "assist" only lasted about 40 miles per charge so any driving beyond that distance was normal mid 60s mpg.I would be interested in trying this in an old high mileage Prius gen3 which is well out of warranty.
What sort of cost was involved and how did it improve mpg? My personal best in the gen3 Prius was 75mpg but I always thought I could do much better if I could start with the NiMh fully charged for the trip to work and the trip home.

There is a video on YouTube -I thought you were clear enough
No, no after purchase upgrades are available yet. It wouldn't be cheap even if it were.
That's easy, same as usual, cost. LED lights cost 10x that of incandescents... and don't 'save' any worthwhile energy...as for the lights I will have to look at that site as I can't see why they haven't already made it standard for all lights to be LED for energy efficiency.
