Мне нравится этот чайник мне его подарили но проблема у нас электричество на 220 вольт. Вопрос как эго переделать на 220.

я не думаю, что это будет иметь значение для предохранителя. плавкий предохранитель рассчитан на 250 в, так что это может быть тот же предохранитель в 220 чайника.

я хотел бы посмотреть на предохранитель и посмотреть, если вы можете прочитать его. тогда просто заменить с тем же.
