you are mistaken. in the UK we use multiple circuits fused at various currents, so the circuit would trip or fuse.

comment What does a genuine TSA badge look like?
HaLaBi's picture below is spot on, but this will not guarantee that it is genuine. Many social engineers will either copy uniforms or buy them from eBay (yes, even TSA uniforms: google.co.uk/…)

While UK regs require appliances to be fused, this does not mean that your unfused appliance from India will become a higher risk in the UK - it's just we have a culture of aversion to risks, so have multiple layers of defence :-/

What interests you? That is key. If you want to collect something because it its interesting, do it. Could be something different in every country.

comment What it the best method to protect from midges in Scotland?
Ahh yes, the feared 'Clegg' - one sliced a small disc of flesh out of my daughter's neck in deer country a couple of years back. Took ages to heal.

You're burning it anyway. Don't get me wrong, I joined Greenpeace over 35 years ago and am all about being good, but you have excess power when driving so why not use it.
