wrong tethered charger

1386 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Paul
I'm a newbie so please be nice if my etiquette is not quite right. I have just ordered a Nissan Leaf. I have a Rolec Type 2 tethered charger which was installed under the grant scheme and my ignorance and lack of research means I have the wrong unit. What are my options? Don't really want to spend £500 on a new charger. I notice that Rolec have tethered cables and sockets available in their catalogue but am unable to get a price or information as to whether a sparky will be able to change it.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

It was a local installer, I've just had him out for another issue with the breaker which was installed and he has agreed to replace the cable with a type 1. I did ask the lads who installed it before they started if it was a the correct cable for the leaf and they said it was. Let hope he does what he promised.
Its a problem more and more people will encounter so if anyone does have a solution I would be interested. On an unrelated note, what is everyone's opinion on the best charging networks?
Thanks everyone, great forum, good manners and friendly advice.

Leaf got delivered on Friday on an unbelievable deal over 2 years. Sparky stuck to his word and all is well. The leaf is amazing
