As the confusing subject suggests, I'm wondering if it is possible to chop one of the Type 2 charging plugs off a Type 2 to Type 2 cable and basically use it as a tethered Type 2 cable and hard wire it into my Podpoint which is currently a Type 1.

I don't really want to add an adapter onto my current Type 1 cable as I've read mixed reports on the compatability of those with my car (Skoda Superb iV).

You don't need to do that. It's simpler to buy the tethered cable and fit it to your Podpoint. I (with the help of my auto electrician son in law) fitted one to our Chargemaster about 6 months ago. Cable was about £70. You could get more selling your cable on Ebay.

We also converted my daughter's type 2 tethered to type 1 (Zoe to Leaf) and that's how I got the type 2 tethered lead. My charger was untethered. That's why I won't describe how we did ours, as it is different to yours (but same in theory). It took a couple of hours to do it as we were extremely careful.

You can buy the cables from here there is also some handy information for passing to a sparkie to get the job done. The chap was very helpful on the phone too when I called for advice on a cable that stopped charging.

Type 1 teathered podpoint units don’t have a 6ma dc bender, a type 2 needs it.

Get a quote off podpoint, they’ll describe all the work you need, then find someone to do it cheaper.

From what I head read it looked like it was a relatively simple rewiring job. Hadn't come across needing 6ma dc bender before?
