    Hello all!

    I am interested in some toys that are sold with a UK-plug only. Since I'm from Sweden I only have EU-sockets at home. It might be a stupid question, but would charging the UK-plug toys with a UK to EU adapter affect the performance of the toy, for example vibration strength? 😳

    I'm very thankful for every answer I can get, so I know if I should go ahead :)

    The UK is 240/250 volt running at 50 hertz, if you supply matches that all you need is a socket adapter. I have a mains toy with a two pin plug, and use a travel type adapter to make it work. I would think that you can buy travel adapters in Sweden to convert your plugs to UK ones, so I'm sure that they will be available for UK to EU to conversion. LH sent me the adapter for my toy, maybe they can help you out.

    Seems like Sweden have 230V +/- 10 % and 50 Hz, that should be alright I suppose? :p

    Hi Sxleksaker

    I live in Croatia and we also have EU-sockets. I had the same problems before I started shopping at Lovehoney. When I collected all the information I bought a Magic Wand with UK plug. After that I bought only a plug adapter and everything works perfectly.

    Most chargers are "switched mode or 'switching'" so cover any voltage between 100-240 so no issues at all just like your phone or laptop charger.
