Nissan Leaf Charging Cable
Please check the year of your vehicle before ordering as Nissan’s early models required a Type 1 to Type 2 EV Charging Cable which you can select from the drop-down above ” Shop by Cable Type”. Alternatively, give EV Cable Shop a call.
Here at EV Cable Shop, we offer a range of Type 2 charging cables suitable for the Nissan Leaf:
- Type 2 to Type 2 charging cable: If you are plugging your Nissan lead into a charging station at home, at work, or in public you will need a type 2 to type 2 charging cable. For optimum charging we recommend the 32amp charging cable, as the maximum charge speed the Nissan Leaf can charge at is 7.4kw. If you want to future proof your purchase you can choose a 32amp (3 phase) which is capable of charging at 22kw, plus all the lower speeds.
- Type 2 to 3 Pin charging cable: If you have not yet installed an ev charging station at home or at work and you are looking for a more flexible charging solution for your Nissan Leaf. We stock portable charging cables that you can simply plug into a 3 pin socket and it will charge your EV at 2.3kw (This will take slightly longer to charge your Nissan Leaf).
- Type 2 Extension Cable: If you are looking to extend your existing charging solution. We stock extension cables suitable for the Nissan Leaf, these come in 3 different sizes 5m, 10m and 15m.
The Nissan Leaf is capable of charging at 7Kw in the office, at home, or in any public charging station. Based on this information we recommend the 32amp charging cable, this will allow you to charge at the optimum speed.

Does Nissan Leaf come with a charging cable?
Yes, the Electric Nissan Leaf does come with a standard ev cable. The Nissan Leaf charging cable provided by Nissan is usually a 5m, type 2 to type 2 connection. The issue that Nissan Leaf owners face is that if the car is returned at the end of the PCP or lease agreement without the Nissan Leaf cable, then the owner will be charged for a replacement. This is why would advise the owner to use a backup cable to use on the road to ensure the cable is not stolen or lost.
What kind of charger does Nissan LEAF use?
For Nissan Leaf owners this could be quite confusing as the cable is different for different models of the car. Pre-2018 Nissan leaf charging cable would have required a type 1 to type 2 charging cable, whilst the newer Nissan Leaf model requires a Type 2 to Type 2 charging cable. You can purchase both versions of the cable online at EV Cable Shop. The only other option to charge the Nissan lead would be to use a 3-pin to type 2 charging cable, this type of cable can be purchased from our website here.
Can I charge Nissan LEAF at home?
Nissan Leaf owners are able to charge their electric vehicles at home, this can be done in two ways:
Firstly you can install a Nissan leaf charging station at your home, these can be installed by an OLEV-approved installer for under £500. You are then able to connect your Nissan leaf to your charging station by using a Nissan Leaf charging cable. There are a couple of benefits to doing using this method most importantly it will charge your car faster. Provided you have the optimum charging station and suitable Nissan leaf cable you can fully charge the vehicle in as little as 7 hours 30 minutes.
The easiest and cheapest option would be to use a domestic 3 pin to type 2 charging cable, this will simply go from a domestic socket and plug straight into your vehicle although this might sound like a great hassle-free option to charge your Nissan Leaf, it could take up to 32 hours! The other disadvantage to this is unless you have an outside socket you would have to leave your charging cable hanging out of a window.
Where can I charge my Nissan LEAF?
As electric cars are becoming more and more popular, the number of locations where you can charge your Nissan Leaf is growing week by week. We would suggest locating your nearest Nissan leaf charging point using a couple of apps that are suitable for both android and ios. For example, you could download Zap-Map. This means you will near be too far away from a charging station for your Nissan Leaf.
How long does it take to charge a Nissan Leaf?
If you charge this car using a 32amp Nissan Leaf Charging Cable, you can charge it from 0% to 100% in just 6 hours, Pretty amazing right, but you have to make sure you have a 32amp single phase ev charger and a Nissan Leaf EV Cable. If you decide to use a 16amp charging cable, this will take 12 hours to fully charge your electric vehicle. Bear in mind you will never really need to charge your electric car, from nothing as you will normally have 25% to 30% of charge before connecting it to your charging station.
Can I leave my Nissan Leaf charging cable outside?
Yes, our Nissan Leaf charging cable has an IP55 rating meaning is waterproof enough to withstand a jet washer although if the device gets dirty we advise cleaning the leaf ev cable with a damp cloth. The only other bit of advice we give our customer is, if possible try and place the device at a high point of the driveway. This will make sure that the Nissan leaf ev charging cable is not sat in a puddle.
