Adaptor which switches the Live and Neutral connections.
This is a universal adaptor that combines the functionality of the Schuko phase-inversion adaptor and the 16A phase-inverted blue adaptor. If you haven’t purchased either of the latter, then you can use this universal adaptor instead, saving on the number of adaptors and space required.
This adaptor will most likely be required when travelling in France as there is no standard as to how the French sockets are wired up. If the UMC shows a constant red light once plugged in, then it is likely to be due to the Live and Neutral presented the wrong way round. This adaptor corrects the inversion allowing you to charge.
This Universal Phase Inversion adaptor is also available in Compact format.
This adaptor must only be used in conjunction with either the Standard Red Schuko adaptor or the Standard Red 16A single-phase blue adaptor. It is not wired for three-phase and will not work with any other equipment.
The adaptor has markings to clearly identify it being non-standard.
Note: when used in conjunction with the Standard Red Schuko adaptor, you might have to dial down the charging current on the charge screen to a suitable level to prevent tripping MCBs. If with the standard 16A setting, the circuit trips, try a lower current, for example 10-13A.
