Why can't I charge my Galaxy Tab S tablet in continental Europe (Czech Republic and Croatia)?



I purchased a new Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 in Ireland and brought the supplied charger plug, USB cable and a Euro socket adapter plug on holidays last month to the Czech Republic and Croatia. The tablet would not charge in either country after trying several wall sockets. Why??
The same charger, cable and adaptor worked fine when charging my Samsung S4 mobile phone in both countries.
Surely I don't need to buy some extra unique to Samsung Euro plug?

Welcome to Android Central! When you plugged the tablet in, did the battery icon show the charging sign at all?
