I am new to the life of an EV owner, having bought a second-hand Nissan Leaf S 2015 only a few weeks ago, and therefore I have everything to learn
Our Leaf has a 24 kWh battery and 6.6 kW onboard charger, with ChaDeMo and Type 1 charging sockets.
It seems that where I live there are no Type 1 charging stations, so we have been looking forward to buying either a cable or an adapter that would let us charge at Type 2 charging stations, for example this one:

Now some doubt came up, as we noticed that some of those Type 2 charging stations already have their own cable, meaning that we would need a short Type 1 / Type 2 adapter between the station cable and our car socket instead of a full cable. However, the Nissan Car Owner's Manual mentions that charging adapters should not be used. Is this true, is there any danger involved by using adapters or is it just a precaution that we shouldn't worry too much about?
I don't really know much about electricity... do those 32A / 7.2 kW properties of the cable in the link represent simply some limits, and the cable would work fine and safe with our car, or should we use only cables that have exactly 6.6 kW (and maybe a specific A value also)?
