If it uses this type of socket, you will be good to go!

Got a pack of these last week for 1.47 or so and thought they were cheap ...
Have a pretty solid feel about them.

great price for something that includes delivery. hot.

Don't both Singapore and Malaysia use 3-pin UK plugs anyway?

Thanks.

Nice deal thanks. I normally borrow them at the hotel reception though you often have to sign a waiver and in a hotel in Germany last week I noted they wanted €40 if you fail to return it :-0

Just ordered as I'd rather not risk a 40 euro bill! Thanks OP

Great price when postage is most likely over 99p given thickness
Royal Mail would charge £2.25? or from next month £599956153453435135135.15

Pretty quick delivery, too - only ordered last night, and it's on the way already. Thanks again, OP.

Voted Hot, needed loads of these for when I move abroad.

Did anyone else think this was some sort of Snowman ornament from the picture?

*trudges off to get my coat.....*

Forgot to get these before last holiday so ended up going to Argos and paid £6 for three crappy ones, two broke and one I had to remove the black plastic inside to allow me to actually plug anything in! So a bargain at 99p delivered. Good spot OP.

Good find - ordered, thanks!

Awesome, thanks

Ordered..thanks OP

These go for like 5-6 pounds at airports I think. Great deal!

I don't understand how they could make any profit on this, after ebay / paypal / royal mail / processing costs ...

Ordered 2 of them for heading to Amsterdam here shortly. The airport charges something like £3 for one, so 99p for two is a great deal.

cheers blue, got myself two packs, have some heat!

Well handy - voted hot!

Ordered, thanks, always very useful to have a couple spare with amount of charges you need going on holiday these days

Cheers ordered 2 packs

thx

Ordered 2 as well, going to the Italian lakes in April - nice spot.

Ordered 1 as well, going on Virgin Galactic so hope these will work

Ordered 2 ,now I need to book a holiday

ty.

Cheers OP!

Great deal! Thanks!

Maybe they've got a couple of boxes to chuck away, so they thought to sell them for pennies (after postage and transaction fees are covered that is). After all, pennies turn into pounds and all that!

I've often seen these available and sold at just £1.00 at Poundland and other "pound" stores, and 99p at 99p Stores!

Yep, all* wall sockets I've seen in Singapore have UK shaped plugs. Quite a lot of items sold there have 2 pin euro plugs though, so adaptors which plug into UK socket and allow connecting 2 pin (euro or US) items are pretty common.

(*before anyone gets pedantic, I should say that in Singapore, high current items like AC units seem to use a round-pin plug, though again the above adaptors would be no use for this)

What do you mean for a thicko like me, I only ask as my HTC charger went black (where once it was shiny metal), didn't work, and blew the fuse - every time. Thought my new HTC charger was dodgy as it was the first use, but now I read your comment...

Ok, I will explain to you.

Basically, in a plug, there are three wires, so three pins: the live wire; (carries the voltage/ current from the power station to the appliance); the neutral wire (carries the current back to the power station) and the earth wire (doesn't carry any current/voltage unless something has gone wrong.

Only appliances with metal casing require an earth wire because the purpose of this wire is to protect the user should the live wire become loose and touch the metal casing posing a hazard. In this case, the current would flow down the earth wire (which leads to a spike in the ground, hence the name), and because the earth wire has a very low resistance, the fuse would blow stopping any further current going onto the metal casing.

However, since the casing of your htc charger is plastic and plastic doesn't conduct electricity as there are no free electrons, there will be a plastic top pin (as there is no need for the earth wire).

I know little about your problem as I am 14 and just learnt this stuff in the past week, so I dont understand why your pins went black but I suspect it is because one of the wires inside the plug is loose. Unplug the appliance and have a look.
