The adaper was too powerful, you should have stuck to the original voltage and you may have burned up some wires inside which was the reason for it smoking and you cannot use it again or the next time it may result to a fire and you dont want that so go to office max, staples, radio shack, or best buy to find the adapter that will work for you. I prefer best buy because there is always someone there in the computer parts to help and assist you with the product you are looking for. I hope that this will help you in some way, let me know and Good Luck!

Lost Power 120VAC cable, Am Now in Peru with 220VAC

1. Read the voltage info. on the razor. Their should be a label on the razor or info. in the instruction manual that came with the razor. 2. If the label doesn't say 120/220 input voltage you will not be able to use your razor. 3. If you use a adapter but the razor is rated for only 120volts input & you plug it into a 220volt socket you may burn your razor up & it may even cause death. 4. Remember find out the input voltage on the razor label & make sure it's the same as the output voltage as your wall socket. If it doesn't match, don't plug it up!

My adapter is not working

US house current is 110-120 Volts and 60 cycles. Adapter must have this type of power. India has 220 Volts and 50 cycles ( Hz). You need an adapter designed for Europe/ India

What will happen if it is plugged into a 220 volt AC

Hi there, it depends where you got your Wii from.

if your Wii was from japan or another country which uses only a 110v AC power supply then you could have either blown some fuses inside the wii or at worse you could have fried some of the internals.

First of all find out which adapter you where supplied with, check the voltage rating on the adaptor. if it is a 110v adaptor then you may need to have your Wii replaced.

Hope this helps

Using battery charger overseas

it's alway suggested that you simply use plug adaptors to change shape of plugs for overseas-do not reduce voltage since most all chargers including yours support 220 or 110

Work in Europe?

According to the rear panel of my 2200, it will accept 120VAC 50 ~ 60 HZ. Which means that outside of a proper plug adaptor, it should work fine. You need to adapt the epson power cable to whatever the French use. Be sure it is 110~120 VAC. Ran into some 220 in Italy
