Answer:               European products, generally whit goods may have larger amperage than 5amp, i.e 10a and 13a, if so you will find a bigger plug on your electrical good/s, this is commonly called a Schuko plug and the moulding around the two pins is larger than a small amperage plug such as 3 or 5 amp.

               

Question:            Can I use Euro to UK travel adapter to sell my electrical products in the UK instead of converter plugs?               

Answer:               The current legal requirements for selling electrical products in the UK is for that product to have a secure screw down connection UK plug. All our Euro to UK converter plugs have this type of connection and BSI certification. Travel plugs do not have a screw down type connection, so the product is not secure, therefore they cannot be used as an alternative.
