I've ordered one from eurodk.com. At the moment they have 108 pcs in stock. It should arrive here on Friday.

My country uses 220V Type C power plugs. My country's Type C power plugs are far thicker(4.8mm) than Euro plug(4.0mm).

I'm going to need a power plug adaptor with any of the plugs available for hAP ac2.

Does hAP ac2 with US plug, UK plug, or Euro plug support 220V?

We have 230V in Europe so 220v is no problem

Does hAP ac2 support 220V regardless of power plug type? Or, do I have to buy hAP ac2 with euro plug to use it at home?

Anyway, you can use almost any power supply with this router. All mikrotik routers have a DC voltage regulator on the motherboard and can work with a wide range of supply voltage (12-30 V).

Thanks. I'll buy hAP ac2 with any plug type for which adapters for my country's power plug exist.

By the way, what is the thickness of the euro plug that comes with hAP ac2?
4.8mm? 4.0mm? I need one that is 4.8mm thick.

do you mean the prong of the adapter that was posted above?
all external PSUs come with 4mm prongs.

Only IEC connectors for the rackmount units have 4.8mm prongs.

I meant the thickness of prongs in https://img.routerboard.com/mimg/part11391161548m.jpg that go directly into electrical outlets.
I'm looking for 4.0mm to 4.8mm converters. If I can't, I might need to buy a US/UK plug to 4.8mm Type C converter.

Where are you located? The 4mm prongs fit in any type of EU compatible sockets. I could imagine that thicker ones wouldn't fit, but thinner ones should fit for sure. Also, you should ask the local distributor. They either provide the required PSU, or will suggest how to use the existing ones.

I live in south korea. Here, people complain a lot about Euro plug prongs that are 4.0mm thick.
They reported that 4.0mm prongs tend to slip out of 4.8mm outlets and generate sparks in 4.8mm outlets.
They were worried about the possibility of fire due to electrical sparks generated by 0.8mm gap.
Fire is scary.

US plug to KR plug converters are common, but I'm still finding 4.0mm to 4.8mm adapters. I might end up buying US plug version.

You can use localy available power supply instead of the packed one. You can also request your local dealer to solve the problem if the plug type doesn't correspond to your local regulations.

I'm not sure if there is a local distributor in korea. I searched local shopping websites for mikrotik products. All search results are imported goods.

In my perspective, there are a few solutions.

1. Buy the US plug version and a US plug to KR plug adapter.
2. Keep finding 4.0mm to 4.8mm adapter
3. Ask MikroTik to release 4.8mm Type C plug version of hAP ac2.

I haven't thought of buying a locally available power supply, but that could work.
However, I think buying hAP ac2 with US plug and a US to KR plug adapter would be cheaper.

Be careful because hAP ac²-US (USA) is factory locked for 2412-2462MHz, 5170-5250MHz and 5725-5835MHz frequencies. This lock can not be removed.

I sent an email to True Networks Ltd. I'll get a reply tomorrow.

Are UK and EU versions hAP ac² (International)? This is more complex than I thought.

Update 1. I just found a universal adapter available in my country that can convert anything including 4.0mm Type C plug to 4.8mm Type C plug. The total cost of this product including delivery cost is ~5.63USD. Although it's expensive for just an adapter, I think I can buy EU plug version. If you think this won't work, tell me.

Update 2. I just ordered hAP ac2 with Euro plug from eurodk.com and a universal power plug converter for domestic use from a local vendor. The vendor says the universal power plug converter supports euro plug. I think it'll be fine.

Update 3. My local distributor, True Networks Ltd, told me to buy an EU to KR convertor or a PSU.
