Obtain one of these mains 2or3-way adapters or similar http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142138871623
Whilst NOT plugged into a wall socket, shuv your busted earth pin into one of the 2/3way adapter's earth sockets (probably best to use the one opposite the adapter's mains pins).
Re-attach the (now) 2pin UK connector to your power supply.
Plug that assembly into the 2/3way adapter near the earth pin you had inserted.
Job done, you can continue to use your original power supply that should be now be left permanently fitted to the mains 2/3-way adapter.
There should be no need to ever remove the charger from the 2/3way adapter.
Total cost under £3, possibly less if you can find a cost-effective 2/3way mains adaptor in local hardware outlet.

no its not that what i want. i have the charger above linked but 1 of the 3 pins has snapped off.

but you can disattach the 3 wall pins, like it is attacted to the charger.

i need to know where sells a 3wall attachment for the same charger if you get me.

so if you take off the broken 3 pin UK bit what's behind it? normally you'd have a 2 pin euro plug

Is it the earth pin that has sheared?

short term, push the broken earth pin into a socket then the live and neutral plug will fit, earth pin only serves to open shield, not normally wired as it'll be plastic

just checked pic again and double insulated so earth pin does nothing but open shield
#12
Who makes it? Can't the manufacturers customer service help?

if it's just the cable then they are all interchangeable, if it's the adaptor part then you may find a multi adaptor type easier as it can be used for other laptops in future. also you will nearly always find an equivalent UK type version either on amazon or eBay. or even 200's of others of shops.
just make sure the voltage and output amps are exactly the same as yours.
you'll be surprised as a lot sell for under £10 complete matches.

or just use one of these, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-PIN-PLUG-10A-TRAVEL-ADAPTOR-Universal-USA-EU-CHINA-ASIA-AUSTRALIA-to-UK-/361297820885?hash=item541f073cd5:g:dXkAAOSwl8NVVh7J, you can find them a dime for a dozen, just glue it to your broken plug, don't even need the broken pin,
