    hi guys,

    i was wondering about this device since i live in a 220v zone.
    I've noticed it only accept 110v.
    i'm guessing it's just a different charger right?
    if i'll get a 12v 1.5a charger for 220v will it work?
    if not will a 220 to 110 transformer work?

    Thanks!

    Are your sure it is 110 only. The input on both of mine is 100-240 (as stated on the label).

    i would be happy to be wrong, but so i've read.

    "
    AC Power Adapter for international travel does support 110v to 220v ?


    For travel abroad, does the AC power adapter can be plugged to different voltages, i.e. 110v to 220v (note that a plug converter might required to convert the plug shape, but the question is about the voltage supported by the AC power adapter included with the tablet).

    Thanks.

    Your AC power plug has the ability to accept a range from 100 to 250 volts (50 or 60 Hz).

    You will find that the prongs can actually be removed and swapped for another set of prongs for the desired country. If you got to and electronics store you will find them available there. Or you can purchase the required adapter prongs desired!
