Your Nissan LEAF comes with a 6 metre long cable allowing you to recharge your battery using a standard household outlet* in about 10 hours. The cable can also be used on certain public charging stations throughout the UK.
* a standard domestic socket for home charging must be on a dedicated circuit.
The recommended method of home charging is via a Home Charging Unit installed by Nissan’s Electro-mobility partner, British Gas. The unit will be installed on a dedicated 16A or 32A circuit ensuring total safety and peace of mind.
The dedicated Home Charging Unit
The safest and the quickest way to charge the lithium ion battery of your Nissan LEAF, is for British Gas, Nissan’s Home Charging Installation Partner to install a dedicated Home Charging Unit. The charging station optimises the communication between LEAF and the terminal and charges the Nissan LEAF fully, in approximately 8 hours.

Installation of an approved Home Charging Unit needs to be completed by a fully qualified electrician.
Rapid charging in more places
Nissan’s rapid charger program is increasing the number of charging stations where you can easily charge your Nissan LEAF battery from 0% to 80% in approximately 30 minutes. Currently Nissan is negotiating with private businesses and local councils about improving the charging infrastructure for electric cars, aiming for 400 new rapid chargers across the UK & Europe.
