    Just use a plug in travel adapter like you would use in Europe and it will then be a 3 point socket.

    It is generally not a good idea to have a regular 3 pin socket in the … It is generally not a good idea to have a regular 3 pin socket in the bathroom.They are not allowed to put into new houses and haven't been for years for safety reasons.



    If you have a massive bathroom then read on:-

    The New 17th edition wiring regulations now allow a 3 pin socket in a bathroom as long as its 3 metres from the boundary of zone 1 (where the water is) and must be RCD protected!!

    yeah how unfair is that :-D

    Hi hon x x

    A 3 pin socket and a shaver point are completely different type electrical circuits.

    Shaver sockets have safety isolating transformers in built, obviously a 3 pin socket doesn't.

    As Simon would say - Sorry it's a No
    Shaver sockets are normally fused down to 1amp, Where would you put the phone - on sink side?
    Get yourself a 4 way for a few ££ and be safe and keep 240volt away from water.
    Why do you want to charge it in the bathroom? Is a it a Thronefone?

    :?

    for charging my electric toothbrush?



    Its not for a mobile phone :-D

    Phone != electric toothbrush

    Maybe it's a teeth cleaning app on the iphone?

    What will they think of next.

    Banned

    where did this fone busines come from?

    maybe worth getting a different charger for ur toothbrush from a country that uses that type of connection

    Sorry didn't think of the toothbrush I thought of the phone lol

    Ours comes with 240 plug on it and we charge our on landing but I have seen my mates and his does plug direct in on the 2pin shaver socket.
