An easier option would be to contact Tony Williams about getting one of the new Jdapters. https://jdapter.quickchargepower.com/

The goal was similar to yours, to be ready for my Model 3 (or an S if I find out I just can't wait that long). However, I don't think I want to mess with jumping back in the car to hit the button every time.
I think I'll just keep my early model DIY OpenEVSE set up for now and maybe buy the HPWC and keep it in the box.
FWIW this is not the behavior that Tony has seen with his HPWC with J1772, J-Wall product, so I'm not sure if this is just a specific issue with the 2011 LEAFs that has been addressed by Nissan in later models or if there is something all together happening.
I agree that having to use the timer override is not acceptable and I guarantee Tony would not be selling his J-Wall for any specific cars if that was a known issue.

I like the J-Wall, but I'd eventually end up converting it back anyway. Very impressive that he has access to 80 amp J1772 hardware. Not something you see anywhere else.
