I have bought a chinese global Redmi 8T awaiting delivery- can anyone advise if the supplied 18W fast charger can be used in the UK they provide a UK adaptor but I am dubious about using it

Yes, same 220 voltages
Why not read the label on it (when it arrives)?

Probably because the OP would like to know now if possible?

The adapter

The adapter


Both made in the same country, given you bought the phone + adaptor, not sure what your concern is. Both equally as likely or unlikely to catch fire

Most phones are made in China so I am not concerned about that but I have read a year or so ago that free adapters provided are often of poor quality as they are “free”. I wondered if anyone who recently bought a phone from China could comment on quality of adapters provided as these aren’t packaged with the phone and are thrown in for free.

Lets be honest you can pretty much guarantee any adaptor you buy will be from there anyway, on the bright side you got one for free or bundled with the phone

Maybe, but a metal fire is nastier than an electrical fire.
I personally don't use the supplied UK adapter that comes with devices from China because if you look inside one you will realise why.
