    I had an adapter for a short period of time like you are doing now, I remember some adapter specifically stated NOT compatible with a Nissan Leaf, which one have you?

    I have a hypervolt type 2 tethered evse. I also had an issue placing an adapter onto this, but the issue was actually the evse was set to "random start" so wouldn't start charging the Leaf when I was testing it. I turned this setting off and the adapter does its job now.

    I'm using this for the past couple of months at home with standard Type2<->Type2 single phase 32A cable so that I can use the same cable with our Type2 and Type1 (161 LEAF) cars. I haven't tried it with any tethered chargers but it has worked without issues with our untethered ABL charging point with above cable.

    The build quality seems excellent but it probably causes some extra leverage on the LEAFs charging port so I wedged some extra support under the adapter when in use.
