Current '18 owners- how often charge?

I know it depends on daily use, but I was wondering, for those of you who really don't commute much daily, does it ever happen that you don't have to charge your leaf overnight.. maybe even for a few days???

How long does a full charge last you?

It greatly varies depending on the temperature but there have been some bouts where there has been no need to charge for several days at a time. It is however a better habit to just get used to plugging in when you get home. Have you been looking into home kits?

I plug mine in every night to make sure it's fully charged in the morning. Level 2 50 amp Juicebox. I have seen 191 miles range displayed. The cars calculations seem to be quite accurate. It's usually driven in town under 60 mph less than 75 miles per day.

Have you by any chance downloaded the plugshare app to see what "no charge" stations are along your commute?

I pug my car every night onto a normal plug.
Do you suggest that it is better to get a proper home kit charging point?

Unless you like going out often enough and live within range of charging stations then a home system is essential.

Mine came with the charge control apparatus built into the charging cord that came with my leaf. I use 120 volts and haven't had any problem reaching a full charge by the next morning. I usually don't use more than 33% capacity daily. I'd planned on upgrading my 30 amp 220 volt tablesaw circuit to 50 amps but decided to try 110 volts first. It works real well for me, so that saves me $400 for the upgrade.
