Hello,

Can anyone shed any light on if I'm gonna need to buy afew convertors for existing UK plugs, or if the sockets in Germany are made the same as they are in UK.

Thanks

Dont worry about plugs, mate. The Chairmans havent finished rebuilding the power stations since the Allies bombed them, so you will be without power most of the time anyway. Are you an electrician?

You need to buy a bicycle and a dynamo. Pedal really hard and you might have enough power for your radio. Not that there's much to listen to as BFBS is tonk.

Are electrical sockets and plug sockets the same thing?

No, you get electricity out of 'electrical sockets' but you stick your plug in 'plug sockets'. Simples!

If your TV is a Brit one, the chances are it will not work in Germany including Paderborn so you may have saved yourself the price of a German plug - or is that socket?

In some cases you can, it depends if the electricity supplied where you are complies with BS 10045. If not, you have to get a converter from Lidl or Aldi. I should take one with you anyway.

Mate take it all with you and when you get there pop along to Praktiker or similar and buy yourself a slack handful of German plugs to stick on your electrical items.

Job jobbed.


Idiot spelling.
