Facebook advocacy for the 6.6kW Charger upgrade in the Nissan LEAF

I'll try not to make a habit of this folks, honest!  But I know I'm not alone in my concern over the lack of an option to use a full 6.6kW charger in the Nissan LEAF.  I don't want this used as anti-LEAF propaganda and I do need to say for most people 3.3kW charging is sufficient, and for many even Level 1 charging with a standard 15A 110V (NEMA 5-15R) outlet will do.  But if you're a shift worker who starts or ends in the middle of the night or, like me, just like to hit the gym really early to beat the crowds (and traffic), then you need 6.6kW quick charging!  And for us, there's now a Facebook group!
