Poorly designed electric jug. Cannot make tea.
Electric jug base wire is too short to be practically useful.
Short-term fix, aka the band-aid:
Use the closest object available that raises the electric jug base to the level of the socket.
Issue with fix:
This is the tea box. It is annoying to have to remove the electric jug and base each time you want to get another packet of tea. Annoying = Bad.
Need to get the electric jug base to be flat on the table. Objects available:
- 1x AUS/NZ to UK adaptor
- 1x Universal to universal adaptor
- 1x AUS/NZ multiplug (longer cable)
Design and determine interaction between components:
- UK Socket
- AUS/NZ to UK adaptor
- AUS/NZ multiplug
- Universal to universal adaptor, configured as UK to AUS/NZ adaptor
- Electric jug base plug (UK)
Enjoy more tea.
Flip over electric jug base.
Throw away implementation.
