I have left my LEAF plugged in at 80% charge for just over 5 days. On the 5th day, at an unscheduled time (not 12am timer), my TED system recorded a few hundred Watts of power flowing to the LEAF. I now suspect this was an Aux battery and general housekeeping cycle.
That is not going to be effective at all and horribly inefficient.
