I'm trying to figure out what the constant and 30-second Amp ratings are for some Leaf Busbars. The ones I have measure 0.78" wide by 0.08" thick. That calculates out to 40.25 mm2 (yeah, changing units) 1 awg wire is 42 mm2. BUT the busbar isn't insulated, and has a much larger surface area, so

I agree with David, a non-working 2012 is probably only worth $3,000. If it requires a HV pack swap ($7,500 for new) that's $10,500, which is the price of a used 2015/2016 Leaf. It would probably cost $2,500 to get a surplus leaf battery, plus labor to swap the modules over, so even a DIY

I've been shocked (no pun intended) at the low prices used Leaves bring. Beth, I'm not qualified to appraise your car, and I can't even guess what you might get for it. However, a look at some Leaves sold recently on Ebay shows 6 examples from 2011 to 2013 that went for between $3000 and

A simple autotransformer can convert 240V single phase into split phase. Technically the transformer only has to be rated for the maximum difference in power between the two legs, however even 5kVA autotransformers are relatively cheap and only weigh about 30 pounds. Note: an autotransformer
