Yes, Mark of Sablon would agree...though he can at request put in higher quality fuses into his plugs. At his recommendation, I have SR Orange I believe.Fair enough. I guess if the whole country works with UK plugs then following the norm makes sense. Over here we buy all most of our distributors with us sockets and lots change the wall sockets too. UK plugs are a bit cumbersome and a pain and have crappy fuses.
