    I would think that one you link to should be fine. If it was me(provided the country you're buying from has the same voltage which presumably it has) I would just cut off the plug and pop a new UK one on.

    Mind you, after saying the above I don't know if you'd have to send the power pack back with the console in case of any faults, in which case perhaps not such a good idea.

    Why not just buy a travel adapter so you can change the plug to one that is three pin. You can get them in places like Curry's, Maplins, or any place that sells travel accessories. It would probably be cheaper then buying a another Wii power supply.

    i was thinking that, but i dont much like 2 pin plugs - prefer 3 pin as they are more solid.

    You can buy a adaptor from B&Q for around £2. It is a standard 3 pin english plug which opens up and you fit the 2 pin euro plug inside.
    I have used them a lot, it saves you cutting the euro plugs off and is far better solution than travel plugs.

    Why don't you just buy a UK plug from a hardware store and rewire it? It takes 3 minutes and makes you feel like a man. Drink beer while doing it.
