NEMA 14-50, 14-30, or ___ ?

I do NOT mean Juicebox or wall charger. I mean the cable that COMES WITH THE LEAF for 240v charging.

(I have googled this like crazy without clear results, and even the local Nissan dealership could not tell me.)

I do not have the car, my friend does and I am wiring an outlet for her.

The ANSWER is elusive, because Nissan chose not to document it anywhere at nissan.com (as of May 2019, anyway).

But the ANSWER has been found, from these sources:

  • a local Nissan dealer, (who had to call me back because no one on the entire sales floor knew or could find the answer...)


  • Picture I finally got of the actual plug from the Leaf charging cable

Is: NEMA-14-50 (c.f. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NEMA_connector#NEMA_14 )


The answer to your dilemma is: It depends.

Yah, the age old question, right?

To be more specific, it depends on what type of charging solution you buy to charge your Leaf. The 2019 Leaf site gives reference to an Amazon page, which shows three different types of charging systems, with two separate socket solutions:

I think my point here is, it's not something you're going to know until you get your charging kit and the plug will come with it.

  • And, what plug does the Leaf itself need when plugged into a 240v outlet? Commented May 23, 2019 at 22:19
  • @samsmith - Um ... that's a different question. Commented May 23, 2019 at 22:31
