Can I Charge my Type 2 Car on Single Phase Power?

Yes. However it will take longer, as single phase is limited to 32A or 7.2kW. 

Be sure to understand the single phase and 3-phase charging performance of vehicles when doing a comparison from their specification sheets. 

The Nissan LEAF Gen 1 & 2 can run at 3.6kW on Single Phase power. 

So the first limitation is what the EV Charger can supply. In the case of the JuiceBox this determined by single or 3 phase supply, and if any limits are placed on the amount of power it can draw (.e.g load sharing). 

The second limitation is what the EV will accept.
