South African Plugs
« on: June 06, 2009, 08:26:02 am »
i have got  A LOT of South African multiplugs and have no use for them - anybody want them ?

all or some please - let me know - am in Whangarei and will be in Auckland for the day on Saturday the 20th of June - so could meet to hand them over - we used some by just changing the wall plug to a kiwi plug and then being able to plug in our SA appliances - saves on changing all your SA plugs to kiwi ones....
let me know if anyones interested, thanks
cheers

Hi Noodles mom
If you have any of the adaptors that have the 2-pin connections I definitely will be interested. I'm looking for about 3 to 4 of them. You can pm me for my phone no and address. Will also collect from you in Auckland if necessary.
 Many thanks.

NOTE; to others still coming to NZ. If you have power supplies that have 2-pin points, then bring adapters that take them - I can't find any here. Can always add a kiwi plug to the SA adaptors.

We also brought way too many multiplugs with us.  In the end we just changed most of the gadgets and appliances to the Kiwi plug - it was just easier.  I will be sending mine back to SA with my family at the end of the year if nobody wants them.

We found that we brought just enough - and we bought extra before leaving. I agree with the 2 pin plugs though, we also didn't think of that so don't have enough for them

You get the 2 point adapter/changer to SA in the Warehouse & Dick Smith. Cheers, SAKB.

A number of the $1/2/3 shops - chinese shops - have adaptors for the 2 pin plugs - at $2 - lowest prices I have seen in Auckland area.
