Question about Lands Phones
-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.
I hope i answered your problem.
