    Ok, first of all, I'm going to Italy this weekend, and I need somequestions answered.

    What sockets do they use? (Don't go all scientifical on me; show me a picture or simplify it) I'm assuming they use the two-pin europlug depicted here, as I need to charge my DS for the trip [​IMG]

    Because I don't want to end up having no source of gaming joy when i get there =(

    Maybe they're weird to you, but they're a lot safer than the euro one.

    It's just that I heard that Italy also uses a three-pin adaption. If i'm wrong, please correct me =/

    that 3 pin one you are talking about must be the earthed plug, 2 male pins and one female, but these plugs are competible with th 2 pin ones (the kind of adaptor the ds uses)

    [​IMG]

    regarding safty the earthed plug is exactly the same as the english plug

    also if i'm not mistaking they use a different tension in england (not to sure about this, but the plug converter for my amplifier has some fuses in it) so if you plan bringing your own ds charger from the UK you have to buy a converter

    Not much of a problem really, My brother's DS was shipped from Spain so it comes with a two-pin chager so i may as well take that.
