Change chime from US to UK plug

Can you buy the plug part for the chime for different countries? I just moved from the USA to the uk and I need a uk 3 pin plug not the USA 2 plug. Many thanks

Re: Change chime from US to UK plug

The US mains is 110volts  while the UK mains is 240 volts.  While you can get an adapter from Amazon there is likely to be a large bang when you plug it in as the internal electrical circuits are probably not rated for the higher voltage.

Re: Change chime from US to UK plug

Should be ok as the name plate shows it having a voltage range 110-240 and 50/60hz I.e dual voltage/freq. Moving from USA to uk I’ve had to scrap about 50% of my electrical goods because some were 110 only but the dual stuff is fine. I think ring have 1 sku for the chime and just change out the removable plug pin piece (the photo in my original post). But that removable part doesn’t appear to be available as a spare part unfortunately. Ring guy told me just to be an adapter from amazon. Thanks anyway

Re: Change chime from US to UK plug

I wish on occasions I pay more attention to detail - I didnt look at your original photo - doh!

Still I'm sure I have devices with similar changeable power plug options which would fit. I'm at my daughters this weekend but when I get home on Monday I'll try and remember to check what I've got and that may point to a suitable option. Fingers crossed :-)

I've looked at the devices I have. Both a Bose charger for the QC35 headphones and a Phihong power supply have a similar slide in UK plug adapter. The Phihong UK plug is available from:

While the adapter should slide onto the Chime unit I'm not convinced it will lock in place as well as the original part but it may be worth a punt as they are not expensive.  The alternative is to use the US adapter with a US to UK power adapter which will be a tad inelegant.  I hope this is helpful.

Re: Change chime from US to UK plug

Thank you, that is really helpful. Really very appreciated. I'll have a look. 

I had a look in the box for a UK ring and that comes with a UK plug and a EU plug adapter, just for reference. 

Thank you again
