I replaced the plug too and pointed out that if the receptacle is loose, that's a problem too. She showed me that her bedroom socket barely grips the plug or not at all.
She hasn't asked me yet to replace the whole socket, and even if I did... the apartment was wired for internet cable, so it must have been remodeled not that long ago, and I'm guessintg the electric sockets were replaced too (I can ask her.)
So.... Is there a device one can put into a 220v. socket (receptacle) that will expand and make a tight connection with a loose socket?
Or any other way around her problem?
Also, I brought an American extension cord with me, so I would only need one adapter for the computer, the camera charger, the phone charger, and the earpiece charger, all of which together don't use that much iirc, but somone tells me a US extension cord might not be able to handle 220v. What say ye?
