Is it safe to get a 110v plug adapter to a socket to use on a mixing drill or will it risk potentially destroy the circuits?

Well yes I know a transformer lowers voltage that's what I use daily but what I'm saying is I there a way to swap it around with a stupid heavy block
I think I see. You mean something like a phone charger instead of a big yellow box?

Dunno. Haven't seen one.

Is it that much of a struggle carrying a transformer out of the van?

My transformer stopped working recently borrowed one of my friend but was wondering about getting something like this just in case rather then getting two blocks minimalising weight and space in van

Yeah something similar but only thing I can see is a PAT tester but I have a similar one but don't dare use it lol

As Raggles said; get a lightweight single socket transformer. They are very light

I can confirm that you can’t take a 110v plug off and put a 240 one on
