Tom & Cathy's LEAF Upgrades
Last Updated June 1, 2013
We've upgraded our LEAF in several ways. Here are details and resources for the modifications.
- State-of-Charge Meter
[January, 2012] – This is a kit designed by another LEAF owner. It plugs into the LEAF's diagnostic (OBD-II)
port and shows a more precise state of charge than the 12 bars on the dash, as well as measurements like
pack voltage and current.
- Charge Port Light [January 8, 2013]
– We added LED lights to the charge port. They come on when the charge port door is opened and are
automatically turned off (via a microcontroller) after a few minutes.
- Polar Bear Decals [June 1, 2013]
– It's great to see so many LEAFs on the road these days, but we decided ours needed to be
more distinct, so we added polar bear decals.
