Hello pit,
So I have an air conditioner/humidifier for my guitars imported from the states. It can handle european electric system (220v-240v, 50hz) well but it was equiped with this plug


Now I only have a converter kit which only takes the 2 flat prong. Is it safe to leave out the roudned ground plug or is there something else I could use?

just replace the plug with whatever your country uses. Leaving out the ground prong could be dangerous if there's a malfunction.

That's a purdy mouth you got there, zelestros. Why don't we make good use of that in other ways...

Do like this, the rounded one should be the safety pin. It's not absolutelly necessary, but it's useful in case of a short.

What if I use a clip on cable connect the ground from the surge directly to the ground prong? Should work, right?

I would probably just physically replace the plug.


Yeah but the cable is not detachable. I will have to solder it.
How about I solder the ground prong on this plug and clip it on my outlets ground connector? It still should be a proper loop right?

use a pair of scissors? just cut off the old plug, strip the wire and put a rewireable European plug on it.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

You can probably switch it to your power and frequency or it does it automatically. I would just get the plug adapter to fit in your weird and funky 6 prong outlets that you daft europeans have lol

or just ask some dude at a shop, it's mainly to make sure you don't fry your amp. You guys run on 240v which means your amperage is likely lower than ours, we get 15-20 amps usually. The frequency might seriously mess with the electronics. I'd be more worried if I had gotten an amp from europe and brought it here since our amperage is likey higher and our frequency is 60 instead of 50Hz.
