Do they deliver to UK? Could use parcel wizard/motel if so. Let me know if that works.

That frence office services looks expensive. You have sub to it for a min 1 month and 1 delivery on that you're talking about 25eur.

Probably handier waiting for the UK site to have them on sale.

There are a couple of mail forwarders in France

airnshop - http://airnshop.com/
colisexpat - https://www.colisexpat.com/pages/en/
Parcl - https://fromfrance.parcl.com/

If they deliver to Germany you could use mailboxde.com

68£ inc delivery. Not sure if they post directly to Ireland.

Amazon Echo (2nd Gen) £67.93 @ QVC - potentially £62.93 with code FIVE4U (New Customers only)

I can't see it going below 63 pounds. Think you should of gone with the QVC offer. Gone back up now to 99£.
For anyone who did order. Do you have to use addresspal or parcel motel. What was the full price?

They're not micro usb you'll need a plug adapter

I'd imagine a regular adapter with usb port will work. Not sure what you mean by charge but afaik, this device is mains only, there is not internal battery. Im open to correction on that though.
