Searching for UK 2 Pin -> Euro 2 Pin adaptor

Found 27th Jul 2012
I'm from Germany and looking for a suitable adaptor to connect the UK version of Braun Oral-B Prof. Care 1000 (, which comes with a UK 2pin plug, with a standard 2pin Euro socket. Unfortunately, I only found those usual 3pin UK adaptors, so I wonder if
1. the UK 2pin plug (distance betw. both pins is said to be about 17mm) may fit into Euro sockets (~19mm) without an adaptor.
2. I the UK 2pin plug fits into a UK 3pin adaptor, e.g.…319

Any help is highly appreciated!

You can buy a plug that lets you plug charger into normal uk socket from Wilkinsons for about 50p.(ie 2 pin to 3 pin). You could then plug this into a normal uk-eu adaptor plug. The Wilkinsons plug works for plugging my charger into normal uk plug, so I would have thought this would work.

Hope ths helps!

Not sure they have Wilko's in Germany.

Ah of course, that would be possible. Still wondering if there's a 2pin UK -> Euro adaptor out there. Or even better, if it fits directly without such crutches

Guten Tag!!

Would something like this work for you?

Hey, perfect German! And that adaptor looks promising, too! Maybe I'll give it a try, when the plug doesn't fit directly. Thanks marvellous!

Your English is much better than my German!!

our 2 pin UK toothbrushes fit fine when we go abroad to Europe without requiring an adaptor
