Infoholic wrote:@PNGMK As a person who a previous working life was an electrician for mining and industrial installations I agree with your comments wholeheartedly. Would you suggest a place where I could buy good quality, S-mark certified, plugs so that I can practice my old "sparkie" skills to replace the plugs on the appliances we are bringing from Australia?

Thanks in advance for you reply.

You can find them easily as mentioned. I try to buy the types that are;

BS marked (not just Singapore S Stamped).
Non-brittle material (not the crappy fall apart plastic).
Pure brass contacts (take a magnet - the cheaper steel plated contacts don't last).
In reality the only appliances I worry about changing plugs on are the high usage, high draw devices such as kettles, washers, ovens, vacuum cleaners. The quality of power boards is variable but I have found a few better ones over the years. I really do try to avoid using adapters (and I don't own any of the multi socket adapters such as these Image
