Hi,
I have a megger (1552) and will be using it in Italy during a rewire. Is there an EU mains test lead that would plug into a european Type L and/or schuko socket. Obviously I could just take off sockets but for ease/speed/safety plugging in would be better. Or could I just use the uk mains lead I have via a travel adaptor?

Make a short extension lead with a UK socket and a schuko plug on.

That way you know the resistance of the lead for any calcs and it's better than a travel adapter (they are generally poop)

Thank you both, really helpful!
I think I'll make up two extensions, one with Schuko and one with Italian Type L. Will make testing at sockets a lot quicker.
Thanks again
