Re my previous thread http://www.hotukdeals.com/ask/adaptor-stuck-suspect-prongs-melted-socket-some-advice-please-2539954 (where I used an EU to UK fused adaptor with an EU kettle - the adaptor prongs melted - won't be doing that again!).

Also, does anyone know where I can get a pack of (preferably two or three) 13A fused UK plugs on Amazon Prime so I can take advantage of the quick delivery? So far can only see this Add On item at £3, but have to spend £20 to qualify. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Status-13APLUG3PK5-13A-3-Pin-Plug/dp/B00J9B0YMU/

Thanks :)

Using the higher wattage estimate, we can work out the approximate amperage 1600/230 which equals 7A so I think using a 13A fuse should be fine but wait for some other answers as I may be wrong.
#2
stick a 13 amp plug on it will be fine.
#3
you can just buy a plug from screwfix for less than a quid,

Cheers HasanG and shadey12. There's a Screwfix a mile or so away, couldn't see any in my local pound shops, one thing you'd think would be easy to find!

i suppose there's not a lot of call for them now, as everything comes with them moulded or more fitted.
I always try to remember to take them off old stuff I'm throwing away, in case I need one for something.

Exactly what I do, always cut the cord and plug off anything I throw out, and if you don't use them then take the cords (minus plug) to your local scrap yard and get a couple of quid for them.

i just take the plug off, some idiot could plug it in and get a belt if you leave the cord attached.

Had a rummage around online - found that Toolstation is actually a ten minute walk from me. Yay! 81p is more like it, I'm going to pick up a few tomorrow (just in case) http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Electrical/d190/Electrical+Accessories/sd2620/Fused+Plug/p74540
