    The habistat I got off ebay arrived today, funnily enough it uses the UK power socket and plug..didn't see that coming. Don't suppose there is anywhere I could get a double adapter that corrects this problem? :?

    If there is a rush- Bunnings defenately had converters, not to sure about double adapter converters tho.

    Go to just about any bag/luggage shop. Most will have a whole stand of international adapters. Where me and most folks get them for travels...

    Take them to an appliance repair place and they will change the plugs for next to nothing. I don't trust adapters too much. A bad connection creates heat that can end badly. Adapters are fine for travel and short term solutions.

    For a bloke to walk into a handbag shop & ask for an "adapter" is surely gonna raise some eyebrows. :?
