    Plug Adapters

    I'm trying to find someone in the UK who could supply a IEC 60320 C8 Plug to IEC 60320 C13 Adapter, finding them all over the world but struggling in the uk. Anyone else bought something like this before?

    That would be because you shouldn't be using them as the appliance wouldn't be earthed.

    Which way are you wanting this to adapt - from 2 pin lead to 3 pin device or 3 pin lead to 2 pin device. The prior is just a big no-no as it wouldn't be earthed properly, the latter is more acceptable - we used some at my last school and they were provided by the electricians.
