PSU Interchangeable Tips (Need US Tip for my NUC FSP-PSU)

Afternoon All,

Wondering if anyone can help point me in the right direction.

I got my NUC6 a few years ago and have since discarded the box with all of the accessories. 

I used my NUC in the UK for years, it has the UK 3 Prong tip attached to the PSU.

I've now moved back to Canada and am in search of the 2 Prong North American tip for the PSU, I'd hate to have to purchase a whole PSU just for the sake of one tip.

I've attached an image with the part i'm referring too. 

PSU MODEL: FSP065-10AABA
NUC MODEL: NUC6CAYH

Thanks

Just to follow up with anyone who even encounters this issue in the future. 

 

I visited ebay.co.uk, found sellers of these plugs and bartered with them to buy their US/NA plug from their listings. Seen as they wont need them in the UK (my thoughts when owning the NUC there).

I was able to buy one for $27 CAD all in (shipping + the part). Adapters on the ebay.com site were a mere $15 USD, this is true. Shipping was $30+ through ebays global shipment centers.

With the price of shipping these days, it would be cheaper to purchase a PSU that it would be to send a tip through the mail (especially from the U.S.). I am seeing compatible PSUs for as low as US$15.

Gotcha, I see a possible unit here for $15USD, shipping to Canada costs just as much as the device itself. So $30USD + my PSU goes in the trash, it seems so wasteful. 

I may start messaging UK patrons selling the PSU's and offer to buy the tip from them instead.

You didn't find one through Amazon.ca?

Not a single tip only. An entire PSU (replica) sure.
