Charging Your Nissan LEAF® at Home: Installing and Using the Wall-Mount Station
If you recently switched to an electric vehicle like the Nissan LEAF®, it may take you a moment to adjust to charging as the new way of powering your car. One of the most efficient ways to do this is to charge your Nissan LEAF® at home by using the available wall-mount station. Here we will explain to you how to install this tool and how to make the most of it to keep your Nissan LEAF® charged at all times. And remember, if you ever need a charge or need help with installation, you can call us at Santa Cruz Nissan and we will be glad to help. .
To charge your Nissan LEAF® at home, you’ll need to buy a 240-volt home charging dock. This dock comes separately from the car, but it is certainly worth the one-time investment for convenience’s sake. When you purchase the home charging dock, you can then follow the directions to install it. Put it somewhere convenient in your garage or on the outside of your house where both you and your Nissan LEAF® will be able to reach it.
As soon as the charging dock is installed, charging your Nissan LEAF® EV is as easy as plugging in your laptop or your cell phone. All you need to do is pop open the lid on the front of the car with an in-cabin button or your key fob, open the portal, and then plug in the charger. Get in the habit of charging your Nissan LEAF® every time you come home, and your electric vehicle will always be ready to serve you.
