Today I electrocuted myself, and lived to tell the story.

Of course it was my own silly fault for being a cheapskate, however still a timely warning to others out there.

Have a safe day

Be very careful when using adapters to convert from one country's plugs to another.

2 quite safe standards can become an unsafe hazard with the use of the wrong (cheap and/or nasty) adapter.

As a fairly frequent traveller it is something that I am all too aware of.

Just a follow up, I wrote to the seller for sending me the incorrect wall-wart (the original one was supposed to have Australian pins on it)... and the useless tw*t sent the same type again. Argh
