Changing countries is even simpler;  just replace the cable that goes from
the wall-socket to the "cover-leaf" IEC C7 or "figure-of-8" IEC C5 socket on
the PSU.


I carry a single Europlug->Modified C5 cable for both laptops and electric
shaver---considerably smaller than the suppiled cables and easier to force
into more socket types (all of Europe + British 13Amp with a pen{,knife}).

Why do one side of a triangle when you can do all three.   Helsinki, FI
