Why? Have the krauts stopped using 220/240 volts or something - its just adding a plug to the end of a cable - its not rocket science....
Using adapters for any length time can null your warranty. Fire officers banned them in the singles accommodation.
That bloody foreign electricity coming up our TV and buggering them up!
How is a German TV made in China plugged into the German national grid with a German plug any different to a British TV made in China using a German plug pugged into the German national grid?
My TV came with UK & European leads - so unless it's wired up by a completefuckingfucktard; what's the problem?
They're not recommended in quarters, either, for the same reason. Swapping plugs has been standard practice for decades. Still got a box of German plugs somewhere, though some are Eastie Beastie ones.
Didn't know that DDR had their own plugs, School day, and all that.
FWIW, I used to fit a German plug to a 4-way adaptor, nothing ever blew up on me. But I am REME of course an therefore superior to virtually everyone on here
