    Better to buy an adapter or you will void the warranty!

    Thats what i'm worried about, do they sell them in wilko's? I am going down town tomorrow, which places stock them and do you know where the plug is from like Europe etc. It is a 2 pin but they are flat (from Malysia)

    I bought Europe but it is the wrong one :rolleyes:

    Sounds like its the same as the US style plug, just don't buy one that says "shavers only" ;)

    If its like that, its fine for round and flat pins. These are available from Argos for around £3 for two.

    For a more robust solution you can order a permenent connector that will grasp the plug making it a more secure connection. They sell them here and will arrive in one or two working days. I these one both my solenoid plugs that are designed for those with transformers and they work almost as well as if they were British plugs.
