Re: Indian power supply problem

You simply need an adaptor, available widely. As the nice Indian fellow above mentioned, you can get them at Inter-Discount.

Just to set the terminology straight, you don't need a (voltage) converter as the power supply units of laptops and cell phones are multi-voltage.

And the same in India and Switzerland. 230V/50A

That's what I thought at first too, but I just checked the so-called "universal" adapter here on my desk (purchased at Inter-Discount, as it happens) and it won't accept a type D plug.

One of the little travel shops at the airport might be a better bet.

Re: Indian power supply problem

Pusterla Elektroniks at the corner of Hohlstrasse and Kernstrasse just off Langstrasse would also have what you need. If they don't have it, no one in Zurich does.

That's just great, looking at that map we can only purchase Italian Electronics for seamless use here in Switzerland

Re: Indian power supply problem

Not sure why we always look for the converters!

If you see you computer power cord, it has two parts. The first part is the cable that connects wall socket and voltage adapter. The second part is voltage adapter and its cable that connects to laptop.

When you mention you are unable to plug your computer power cable into wall socket that means the first cable has a different pin. To solve this you could buy the first part that has Swiss pin. You could buy this at any Inter Discount, Media Markt or on digitec.ch also. Ask for Netzkabel of Dell. On digitec it costs around 10 chf.

Hope this helps.

Re: Indian power supply problem

Change the plug! 1CHF in any old DIY shop like OBI. No need to do anything else except, when you go home, change the plug again.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy
