Urgent Help! European Lighting?!

Hello! I have rented a 3 head Dedo lighting kit that I am taking with me to Luxembourg tomorrow. However, I can only find one of my worldwide adapters, which will allow me to plug in my UK plug into a European socket. My question is, can I plug all 3 lights into a 4-way adapater plugged into the convertor? Would this be ok? Any urgent help appreciated! Thanks

Most electric groups have a 16 amp fuse. 16Ax220V gives 3520 Watt. Better stay below this maximum. Use sockets from different rooms. They sell world wide adaptors in Luxemborg too. As last resort, if you are not affraid to change a plug you can buy some over there and do some handywork on location.

It actually worked out fine. I used a 4 way with a standard convertor, and all 3 lights behaved perfectly : )

Thanks
