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.
