Diva Light with UK plug?!

Hi there! I recently purchased, from the US, a europian 230V Diva Light 400, which certainly looks the part. It has a US plug on the end of the cable...should I simply be able to replace this with a UK one? I dont really want to need an adapter on it every time. Please let me know your advice! Thanks!

(Yes, I really AM this simple!)

If it uses an IEC adapter like your PC has where you can change out the plug to whatever is used in a particular country, then all you have to do is buy a local IEC adapter plug that has a UK wall plug on one end and the IEC adapter on the other.

Hi, just saw your post. You've probably gone ahead and done it now anyway...

But in case you haven't, yes, just cut the plug off and rewire a UK plug.

I'm in New Zealand - I believe our plugs are different again - but I bought a couple of identical Diva Light 400 from the US myself, with US plugs, and simply rewired them. No issue there. Enjoy.
