Is it safe to use a standard US to UK "travel" adapter with HX1200 PSU?
 
I recently bought a HX1200 PSU, and the main power cable (that plugs into a wall socket) comes with a US 3 pin plug. On the plug it says "15A 125V 1875W". I have a separate "travel" adaptor where it says "13A 250V CHECK YOUR APPLIANCE IS COMPATIBLE WITH 250V~ SUPPLY".

I'm not entirely sure if the specs above make the adapter and power cable compatible or not. Would it be recommended to get a power transformer of some sort (if so, what brand / model)? Or is it ok to use my standard adaptor?

(Apologies I couldn't upload any photos despite trying jpeg, jpg and png; the uploader always threw an error saying these weren't valid files).

you should be able to find a proper IOC cable for the local power grid at any PC shop
