Hi Ian,

Will the lead fit straight into the Phantom unit, or does the US pin plug into the adaptor ?. I tried to ask the guy this on the phone at Maplins but he just grunted !!.



The US pin plugs directly into the adaptor. Mike originally alerted me to this unit and I can heartily recommend it, (even better at 9.99!    in hindsight wish I'd bought a spare).

Best wishes

Chris

Cheers Mike, looks like they are 24.99 and in stock at a nearby store.

Mike, did you post about obtaining US to UK mains adaptors { mail order ?} a while ago ?, as i will need one for this Phantom.  Can you advise . Thanks.

Ian.



This is the link to the US/UK Adaptor thread.

http://users.boardnation.com/~chesscomputers/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=514

I clicked on the Maplin link just now and it looks like the 100W ones have gone back up in price. Worth checking out your local Maplin's though.

All the best
Mike

Thanks Guys !,

......although i am always a little apprehensive until i actually have it and everything is working ok so i will put the champagne on hold until then, but i am really pleased at the final selling price and i never thought my bid would win it.

You got that Eyeball then. At a good price too. Definitely the lowest price I have seen, other than the untested/bare/ "as is" offerings which occasionally come forward. Before this Eyeball the lowest price I had noted in the last two years was the one sold by the guy that sold me the Prestige, which went for $760.

My wife completely detests the attract mode -

Hey You
Yes You
How about a nice game of chess?
