How To Protect Your Nissan LEAF Level 1 Charger From Theft – video
If you own a Nissan LEAF, you are probably aware that the locking mechanism to secure your L1 charging unit is, well…a little flimsy.
InsideEVs reader (and AVÉQ forum admin) François recently had his 2013 LEAF’s charging cord lifted (2011/2012 LEAFs did not have a locking system) – a very expensive proposition to replace (at least if you look to reacquire the unit from Nissan), and passed on to us a nifty video (click subtitles for English) he made of how
to steal a replacement one back easy it is to have one stolen.
As a solution to the problem, Franck compiled a pictorial walkthrough of ways to more effectively guard your EV’s charging cord in public areas. (You can also check out his thread on the subject (in French) at the Forums AVÉQ)
Our thanks to François for the video and walkthroughs!
