I think the 25kw chademo is a better fit with a Leaf sized pack & more suitable to the 20A 3 phase wiring/outlets common in Oz.

WOW! The electricity utility will charge you $5000 a year just to have it hooked up to the grid? Even though a household will have the same 60 kW connection and pay about $200 a year.

I can see a strong case for off-grid solar powered, battery-buffered charge points...

it depends if you have other stuff on the connection but if all you have is a single charger it's less than 100amps so no network capacity charges. (i hope)

but if it's on a meter that does more than 40MWh per year then you have to pay them (depend on distributor) Augrid price list

The Electric Highway | London to Edinburgh | Fully Charged

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHcC65Zo ... 4-overview

here is the clickable version of the clip
did I hear correctly that Robert used the f word?
I thought that youtube might censor this?

" here is the proof of insanity
" I didn't say truck off
" I said yes

London to Edinburgh = 651 km
6 hours 51 minutes

Perth to Kalgoorlie = 594 km
6 hours 10 minutes

8mins 11 secs
A mention was made of Craig who has only rapid charged his LEAF without any degradation to his battery. This was mentioned by Brian M at the SEA LEAF test drive.

they fastcharged the LEAF 6x

Interesting,
            So they traveled 643km and consumed 150kwh from the wall. roughly 195whr - km (I would say they started out with a full battery and this was taken into the numbers) If not there is a good 15% to be added to the consumption.

8 charge stations to cover the distance that's 80km between charges.Though I am sure they were not evenly spaced.

Again 195whr - km and the terrain looked flat in the video (not sure what the speeds where but I would say 100 -110kph.
