Rated 3 out of 5 by from Incompatible with Standard Braun plug pins. Purchased to adapt a Braun 5210, 2 round pin lead to a UK socket. This q2 type 1.100130 World to UK, plus USB adapter has multiple holes but none for the Braun pins, which are the standard size. Thin 2 round pin plugs fit perfectly but they are rare in my experience. I'm keeping the adapter anyway for the inevitable need but am off to buy a basic adapter for the Braun.

Small kitchen appliance bought online from the USA. Power spec. is 120V - 60Hz 800W. Appliance has US 2-pin polarised plug (one blade wider than the other). Can I use this adapter in Ireland (240V supply) to power the appliance?

Asked by: amk1697
This would not work and would damage the appliance. You require a 1KW voltage converter which can be found at the link below: http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/tacima-230v-to-110v-1000w-voltage-converter-n54hf
