Ethernet grounding adaptor kit

Alex Johnson 2 years ago updated by Arblind 5 months ago 4

Hi there,

I came across your website on Dr Mercola.com.



I live in the U.K., do you know where I could get a Ethernet grounding adaptor with a UK 3 pin plug?



Thank you

We don't sell UK adapters with the ground prong.  So you would need to find a UK adapter that changes it to 3-prong US adapter.  The effect of the adapter in Europe is different, because you have a different power distribution system.  In the US we have more of a problem with high frequencies traveling through solid objects (desks, floors, chairs, people, the ground itself - dirt, etc).  In Europe you don't have this problem as much.  The adapter would still ground your laptop and may offer benefits, but it's very different than in the US.

Hi Alex,


You would have to construct your own plug.  You could use our adapter, and perhaps find a UK to US plug adapter that will pass the ground connection through?  Otherwise you would have to wire your own plug end onto our adapter.


Would you like us to send you one of our adapters?

Hi Shaun,

Thank you for the email.

With one of your UK adaptors would the grounding kit have the same effect of reducing EMFs?

Kind Regards
Alex

If I understood clearly (this is very new to me) I could just use an usual converter from USA to EU, just like the ones I use for every USA appliance that I have in my house?

I could attach an EU plug and cut the USA one as you mentioned, but it would be more convenient with converters.

I will be using these adapters in Croatia, so I'm concerned about this.

Thank you.
