Default Using UK mini in the US/Canada - 09-09-2009, 06:34 PM

Apologies to the rest of you for asking what is probably a dumb question. I am thinking of buying a mini 10v here in the UK but want to be able to use it in North America. Presumably I need to buy some sort of different cable for the adapter thingummy so that I can plug it in a socket. Where do I get one?

I'm 99% sure that all portable device (laptop, iPod, netbook, etc) charging adapters do not need a voltage converter at all, just a plug adapter (hundreds of the things found in airports). Just to be sure, look at the adapter technical info, on the power brick/wall wart, and if it says AC 100-240V then you will be fine.

This is what I use:

All-in-One Surge Protector. Walkabout Travel Gear (tm)

Unfortunately, I don't know if they ship internationally (the store is located in California). I'm sure you could find something similar, though.

I like this style because it works anywhere, so I only have to carry one adapter. Also, it has an integrated surge protector, which is nice.

Thanks, that's really useful. All I need is an adapter! That is just so easy.
