Hi, does anyone have experience of swapping a UK standard 3-pin plug for a Portuguese 2-pin plug on electrical equipment bought over from the UK, in order to avoid use of adapters?? If so, how do you work out polarity or doesn't it matter? Where's the best place to buy spare 2 pin plugs?? Any info gratefully received. Thanks.
