I have a desk lamp I inherited from my European brother-in-law. It works fine, or at least it did last month, when I had it on my desk in my office.
This month I moved to a new house, and as I was unpacking I came upon this lamp and went to plug it in. That’s when I found out the plug is all wrong.
It’s a two-prong plug, but the prongs aren’t parallel and side-by-side. One prong is flat, and the other in circular. I googled european plugs and didn’t find anything that looks like this. I tried plugging it into an unplugged power strip, and the two prongs fit fine if I plug them both together in the third hole - but that could just be coincidence.
(You would think I should already know about the odd nature of my lamp, but my brother in law set up my desk for me last time I moved, including this lamp. Once it’s working, you don’t think about checking to see if it’s strange.)
Anyway, I really don’t want to experiment and blow up the house. Does anyone know whether or not I need an adapter for this, and if so, what kind?
