Travel 220 Electricity
ah yes, English plugs! I'm not looking forward to trying to travel with them. .. As someone who "messes about with electrics" sometimes, I often wonder why we are the only country with Earth. Earth is the third pin... most appliances don't even use earth. Especially now with plastic casings. 30 years ago when eveything was metal, okay, earth was a sensible idea.
even in england things vary. I used to do stage lighting, and there are about 4 "standards" of 3-pin plug for that, mostly round. plus the "euro-socket" which is best called "kettle-plug" which is the 3-pin trapeze shaped plug for computers and kettles.
and then there's heavy-duty cables... some of those are 5-8 pins. it's silly.
but there we go. crocodile clips and solder it is! (if you carry a small bit of solder, you can normally heat an old metal nail with a lighter to melt solder for emergencies. I only recently got a solder iron and i wouldn't travel with one anywhere. Also, make sure you don't get burned on hot nail... needs a handle!!)
