    Maplins USED to do one,dont know if they still do now.
    It was basically a plug in adaptor about the size of a AA battery charger.
    Plug the unit in then plug the 2 pin plug into the top of that.
    I had one with the first dvd player I had and it was only cheap but lasted for years.

    Just make sure you get one with sufficient wattage or Va rating. Your DVD player will probably run at around 30W, maybe less. It's a good idea to go at least 10W over to prevent overheating etc. You should be able to pick up a 50W Stepdown from Maplin as mentioned above. Even try Argos :).

    If you are in London, plenty of shops in TCR sell them.
