I brought a set of "Christmas" lights with me to France from Canada. I love them, they look like yellow flowers attached to brown branches which you can twist into different configurations. However, when I tried to plug the adaptor into the European adaptor and then into the wall, it made a loud buzzing sound before exploding and smoking for a long time. Yes, I know, I should have realized that that chunky brick of a thing would probably cause some problems. I don't think the little plug that plugs INTO the adaptor was damaged, though. It looks llike this
. What adaptor do I need to buy?
I hope you've followed me, I'm not sure exactly what to call it besides an "adaptor".
