    Does anybody know where to buy some adapter for New Zealand electric devices, so I can use devices from New Zealand here in Prague? Any help much appreciated. Thanks

    Hi Jirka,

    Have you tried looking in the electronics department at Tesco? I picked up an adapter from there a while back and it takes a lot of foreign plugs. It works with a U.S. grounded plug and others, but I'm not sure if it works with one from New Zealand.

    It's a dual voltage device?

    I actually have an adapter that was left in the apartment I took over - the man visited australia often for family, so I assume it is the same plug type - it is three pronged for grounding

    If you want it, you can have it, I have no use for it. Let me know, I live near the Andel Station, so easy for a quick handoff.

    no problem, you are welcome - glad I saw your request before throwing it away - forums are a great way to exchange info and share!

    I also have a few tiny clip on koala bears left by the former tenant, maybe I should have passed those on also :lol:

    little stuffed koala bears - about 2 inches tall - but they have little jackets on them that say "I love Australia" but the jackets can be removed.

    But, even better - while doing some spring cleaning, I came across another NZ / Australian - CZ adapter as well as a Radio Shack double AA batter charger (the charger base only, but not the rechargeable batteries) - the battery charger is a NZ / Austalian plug, hence the second attached adapter.

    Let me know if you want it.
