We don't restrict ourselves to items with Singapore plugs now. Plug boards that take all kinds of plugs are very common now, and we find it easier to have a few of those spread round the house than to look for items with Singapore plugs.

We have all sorts of adapters and plug boards at home. However, I still feel more assured using one that comes standard with Singapore power plugs, preferably with the power safety mark, especially if kids or old folks are using them.

Not sure which one you are looking at.

Like what NBM mentioned, there are a lot of options available on Qoo10. Some comes with Singapore power plug.

If not, can always just use and adapter. I do that for those 'toys' that friends cart back for me from China.


China has copies of copies that try to undercut one another....have to be very careful especially buying things with motors or heating coil. Most reputable brands will have overcurrent and/or some sort of thermal protection inbuilt into their device...which will most likely be missing when manufacturers of chiong products try to undercut each other.

I will be extra careful if the electrical appliances are from some countries.

I am looking at the EuropAce EJK107P that comes with a electric heating base, like those electric jugs.
The capacity is 1 litre, same as my rice cooker.

Anyone has heard reviews on it? I could not find any reviews online.
