-We are in Israel and have a new telephone with base and handset with their own A/C adapters from the USA. -The base adapter says input 120v, 60hz, 9W and output 7.5v 400ma. The handset adapter says input 120v, 60hz, 2.5w and output 7.5v 150ma. -We have extra israeli adapters that each say input 220V 50hz (no mention of any watts) and output 9v 500ma.
-Do we care about the watts listed on the input? -Can the output of 9v be ok for something looking for 7.5v? What about the difference in ma's (what ever those are)? -Do you think the israeli adapters can replace the american ones?
I live in the Philippines, but I've got relatives in the US who send me gadgets as gifts. I've had the same problem with my laptop before but when I called HP call center, they said that as long as it says there input 100 - 240V, then it's ok to plug it in a 110 or 220 socket. Here in the PH, we have 220V sockets, but Americans use 110.
Anyway, your phone says it can only be plugged to a 120V socket (max) so that means, you have to use a transformer (that's what we call it here. a black box-like thing) to convert the volts from 220 to 110. If you plug your phone directly, it might explode.

No you cannot as 220v will damage the 110v the Logitech. You need a stepdown transformer to reduce the voltage from 220v to 110v. and then you can safely plug the Logitech into this stepdown transformer.
Yes, make sure you have a new power supply with the right voltage output, enough current (if the new power supply is rated for more current output, it will be OK), and the right plug with the right polarity.
Check your power supply, some will actually work with a wide range of voltage, some actually go from 100-250VAC. 50Hz-60Hz
Reset Procedure for Cordless Phones
1. Disconnect Battery from handset(s)
2. Disconnect Phone Cord from wall jack
3. Disconnect Phone cord from base unit
4. Disconnect AC adapter from wall outlet
5. Allow to sit for 30 min
6. Reconnect Phone Cord to base
7. Reconnect Phone cord to wall jack
8. Reconnect AC Adapter to wall outlet
9. Reconnect Battery to hanset until you click or feel the plug snap into place
10. Re-Register Handset by placing on main base in most instances.
The handset has lost the link with the base. This link codes the handset to the base with a unique security code so others with the same phone cannot use your phone line.
If you changed the battery, try disconnecting the base telephone line and ac adapter for a while (1/2 hour or so if possible).
Remove the battery from the handset as well.
After 1/2 hour, install the battery in the handset, connect the telephone line and ac adapter to the base. Place the handset in the charging base and the link should be established. If not, the phone is defective.
Of course you can use the 220v AC adapter, it will not harm your massager but may only underperform [slow speed, slow vibrations etc]
And be aware that the foreign products you receive, and have adapters rated at 120v are bound to get busted if you use them here in India, don't use them at first place. Rather, buy an adapter rated for 220-240v for the same output voltage as that of 120v
This problem often results from a defective handset cord--check the handset cord by switching it with a good one. If that solves the problem, replace the cord. With a portable phone, substitute a transmitter from another telephone--replace if necessary.
