Apologies if it’s not appropriate to post this here (as it’s not a DIY question as such... but maybe it will become a DIY project for me), but it seems like a forum where someone will know the answer.
I’ve recently moved to a country where virtually no electric sockets have a earth connection. :shock:
Firstly, which electrical items should I be most concerned about plugging in to non-earthed sockets? I know (I think) that items with an entirely plastic outer case should be okay. But would a kettle or iron, for example, be any more dangerous without an earth than some other items?
Secondly, would using an RCD adaptor with an non-earthed socked provide any additional level of protection or does the earth being missing totally negate whatever the RCD adaptor does anyway? Sorry for displaying a complete lack of electrical knowledge! :oops:
Any help gratefully received. Just hoping to extend my life expectancy a few years. :)
