    I live in the UK and use a 3 pronged plug, and am going away to Spain soon on holiday and so i need to charge my ipod while away. I've been looking at this charger, which will suffice for this country http://www.play.com/Electronics/Ele...ins-Charger-With-Dock-Connector/Product.html#.

    Because the rest of europe uses a two pronged system, i need an adapter. I have one of them, you plug the 3 prong into the back of a two prong and use it from there, like so; http://www.globalsourcesdirect.com/catalog/TT-WP-9F-72.jpg. Will this be ok for the ipod? Because everything else i have seen features different plugs that clip onto the charger. Is this pretty much the same idea? I just don't want to get out there and find that i can't charge my Ipod.

    I'm not a doctor, but that seems fine to me.

    Anyone know for sure?

    The adaptor will work just fine, as the BS 1363 plug system is the same voltage as the Europlug. The different plugs for the charger are just so they don't have to make a separate charger for each country, and that you won't need a separate adapter for it to work in different countries, and also so that they can market the same package in al countries without change.
