    Its just a standard kettle lead any will do.

    Could always cut the euro off and wire a uk plug but easier to buy a lead if you dont have one.

    OK great. When you say any, do you mean any? I don't need to be careful of voltages etc?

    Europeans use the same voltage as us as far as i know but anway its just a lead there's nothing active in it so voltage isnt an issue.

    If it was a US spec monitor then things would be different.

    I have cable with an adaptor in the middle and you can switch between a euro and a uk.

    If you have a uk psu lead knocking around that will do fine.

    I've bought stuff like this from Germany. Just snip the plug off and wire your own one on.

    It's no harm to pull the fuse out of the plug that it came with and put it into the one you wire on yourself.
