Is the ground connection in the plug there to protect the charger or humans?

Is the ground connection in the plug there to protect the charger or humans?
The Twizy manual says that outlets with ground always should be used.
If the ground is “only” there to protect humans, then I really don’t care about charge it from an outlet without ground, because then it is not more dangerous than my Ipad :slight_smile:

I suspect to protect humans! This is a good answer https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090301211823AAbyxMz

Ok, so it will not destroy the charger if it is charged from a oultet without ground?

Judging from the response in that link no. However I’m no electrician but I know others on here are very well versed in that area so it may be best for one of them to give you advice.
