AC Adapter EU/UK Help.


Novice Member

Looking for some help.

I got a MI Box and it came with a EU plug and one of those unsafe cheap multi adapters.

I have a spare UK plug but the settings are a bit different. I'm wondering if its safe to use.

EU Adapter - 100v-240v 0.3A 5.2V 2.1A
UK Adapter - 100v-240v 0.4A 5.1V 2.5A

Would the UK one be safe to use? Or do I need to get a new UK Adapter?

Hello Russ,
Yes, going by the ratings on your UK adapter it should be perfectly ok. It has a slightly lower output voltage but still the nominal 5 volts that's required and has a slightly higher current rating so should easily be able to supply whatever current your Mi box requires.
