Hi all, I have a battery charger here in khon kaen that has a uk 3pin plug on it, I want to put a Thailand plug on it, I have seen a few thai plugs that come apart held by one screw, does any one know where my live, neutral & earth wires should go in a Thai 3 pin or two pin plug? I haven't looked inside a Thai plug to see if they are marked live, neutral or earth, the charger is for car/ motorcycle battery's.
Maokang, thanks for the link, they look easy enough to wire up, ordered three today at 50 baht each total including delivery 195 baht...
many thanks for the help
Hi Guys, sorry to butt in on somebody else's post but I'm curious (and I know this is a stupid question). Any idea what would the process be if you wanted to "re-plug" UK appliances from a standard UK 3 pin to the more common Thai, 2 pin type of plug? I don't know whether that is even do-able but I don't think I've ever seen a 3 pin Thai plug or socket! Have they started to include an Earth now?
Personally... l would not discard the earth wire of any electrical equipment
When we were living in our condo, I brought over a decent kettle from the UK and rewired it with a three pin Thai-style plug which I bought at our local Big C superstore. As MaoKaang says, they're easy to find and they're straightforward to fit.
My house is 15 years old and has earthed 3-pin sockets. Only houses on our estate over around 18 years old still have 2-pin sockets.
It's a while since I stayed at a hotel that only had 2-pin sockets. No doubt many older ones still out there though.
That said, being Thailand, there is sure to be no end of builders flaunting/ignoring the regulations.
