TR-002 - will it come with a UK plug?

Post by bobby_badger » Wed Sep 30, 2020 3:57 am

Hi

Pretty much decided to buy this to operate as a DAS unit. Very happy with features/price etc. Looking around at reviews on various sites and I saw a couple that said it doesn't come with a UK plug. I have a camera battery charger that came with a two prong plug and an adapter but it the plug is very loose in the adapter and the plug easily slips out, which is not a big deal for a camera battery but if the plug gets knocked out of the adapter on a HDD enclosure (RAID or otherwise) that is a problem. Can anyone confirm if they bought this unit in the UK and they got a UK plug?

thanks,
Bob

Haven't seen any detail images of the powerbrick but normally the cords should be "cloverleaf" or C13 style connectors and can be easily exchanged if the seller does not supply a UK plug

So you think I could buy a generic cable to go from the power brick (cloverleaf) to a UK plug? Seems a shame if I had to but good to know that's a possibility. My OCD tendencies would worry that would be the weak link in the chain I have put together :|

dont buy a chepo cable on ebay..any half decent to spec plug will be just fine and no weak link..remember uk plugs also have inline fuses..extra safe

Thanks. Are you suggesting just taking the two prong plug off and fitting a UK one? NB I have ordered it but it hasn't arrived yet - it may yet arrive with the correct plug!

No, all I am suggesting is to replace the whole lead (wall socket to power brick) with a UK plug, easy

If it arrives without a UK plug I will ask the supplier to replace the lead, as you are suggesting. Fingers crossed that isn't necessary. Many thanks.

you can do that or just buy your own, they should be available at any computer/electric store

if they are local it should be fine .. if you get a 50p one from China, you will also wait a month for it
