I thought he was going to file the round pins flat, but turned out to be more ingenious than that:

Now if I can just figure out how to do that with a BS1363 plug....... crazy

The picture in the first comment on that page looks rather "interesting" too.

Why not just buy a US Sony Ericsson charger?!
They're <$20 and a hell of a lot safer than that mess!

Also, you've got to love the use of 'an international plug' vs a 'US plug'.

Lets hope he/she never visits China where they use US-style plugs on 230V laugh
