Has anyone bought and tried out a power plug converter that adapts a Tesla DC Charger connector to a type 2 Kia connector. I'm going to travel some and I want to be able to use either type charger with the user of an adapter.
 
I'm not familiar with a Tesla dc charger, but if it only provides dc, it would not be possible to adapt the output to the Type 2 connector, which supplies ac to the car.

The Chademo port on the car takes dc, but I understand there is no adapter from Tesla to Chademo.
 
Thanks.
Let me lower my goal here and ask if anyone has tried a Tesla adapter to J1772 adapter (CCS1 on my Soul EV) to charge their Soul EV off of a Tesla Type 2 charging station?
By the way, I actually found a Chademo to CCS1 converter on a quick Google search. It is pretty expensive. Also there are CCS1 DC chargers.
I am considering a Type2 converter in case I am in a situation where I can only find a Tesla Type2 charging station to use on my trip.

In theory that is only wires and a different shape, nothing fancy like converting protocols.

I'm pretty sure you can find those on Aliexpress or Amazon.

Note that Tesla destination chargers have two modes. One will allow any car to charge (including a Soul with an adapter) the other one will only allow Tesla vehicles to charge.

You can't see in which mode they are and it's not always communicated correctly by the hotel/shop where they are located.
