post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I've got a quick question, I ordered this off of Amazon UK,

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00918MEZG/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00

It has arrive with a 2 pronged wall plug but I live in the UK and need a 3 prong plug, can I just buy a new kettle lead and use that?

Cheers,

you could but make sure the psu is rated for 240v and not 110v thiere might be a switch on the back off the psu that say 110v and 240v make sure that is on the 240v

Just buy a 2 to 3 prong socket adapter for the uk, couple of pounds at most. I have the same on my monitor.

Simple solution, buy a new power cable, they're dirt cheap anyway.
