Leaf battery and plug
I had 2 questions come up repeatedly:
1. How big is the battery? I hadn't really thought about it, so we popped the hood and looked. I guess everyone was thinking that to power a whole car it would be the size of a cooler. It wasn't.
It looked regular-sized, but slightly narrower.
2. How do you plug it in. Easy. Just pop open the small door in the hood and you snap in the plug. The other end has the regular 120 volt 3-pronged plug you have in garages and home. The other plug in the hood is where you snap in the 240 volt plug when charging it at work in the specially designed charging stations (the plugs you have for your washer or oven).
