The title compound, (C6H14N2)[NiCl3(H2O)(3)]Cl.H2O, contains doubly protonated 1,4-diazoniabicyclo[2.2.2] octane (dabconium) (C6H14N2)(2+) cations, mer-[Ni-II(H2O)(3)Cl-3](-) octahedra, [mean Ni-O = 2.054 (2) Angstrom and mean Ni-Cl = 2.4272 (6) Angstrom] and additional (non-coordinated) chloride ions and water molecules. These species interact by way of numerous O - H...O, O - H...Cl and N - H...Cl hydrogen bonds and possible C - H...Cl interactions [mean H...Cl = 2.75 Angstrom, mean C...Cl = 3.575 (3) Angstrom and mean C - H...Cl = 142degrees] to result in a structure with a layered character. (C6H14N2)[Ni(H2O)(3)Cl-3]Cl.H2O is isostructural with its manganese(II)-containing congener.
