We’re strongly opposed using ‘converted’ Japanese EVSE as they’re not compliant with Worksafe guidelines and simply illegal to use in New Zealand.
The industry is young, and many car dealers cut the corners and instead of using suitable devices they sell the vehicles with the modified cables.
The in-built thermal sensor and a cut-off system, which are built to work with Japanese standard 110-200 voltage, cannot be safely converted to 220-250 voltage that we use here in New Zealand. Slowly but steadily, due to the excessive voltage applied, the parts inside 110V chargers deteriorate and may cause overheating.
The bottom line is – it might be dangerous to use any modified original Japanese Nissan Leaf chargers, their sensors are not made for the default New Zealand power grid voltage.
