What's the Domestic Power Supply in Germany

Hi Folks, back after a bit of a break.

1) What's the Voltage in Germany?

2) What's the connector for the above, ie 13 amp (I think not) or the American 'kettle' style connector?

3) What UK Supplier offers UK to German transformers? nb heavy duty stuff - so we can use our equipment over there.

4) An exchange rate site?


2 Solutions
1-220V AC -50 Hz
2- European style connector
3- you do not need any, as UK is also 220V - 50 Hz

4) http://www.xe.com

3) Depends what you're up to but domestic voltages are within tolerance for UK supply so pretty much just an adapter issue.

2) Standard Northern Europe Adapter (picture of socket http://www.cla-ri.net/daa/germany/image/plug.jpg)

1) 230v 50Hz Domestic, 380/220v (+5%, -2%) Three Phase Industrial

M :o)
