I need an AC adapter/ Power suppply for an Emjoi AP98R epilator

You need a compatible NiCad charger, I opened the AP98R and it contains 2 AA rechargeable NiCad 1.2v 700ma batteries.
Basically any NiCad charger that outputs the same voltage and ma will work.

I accidentally plugged in my pulmoneb in a 220v outlet

plugging a 110v device into a 220v outlet is not likely, as the plugs are a different configuration. In the event that you somehow managed to do that, your device is probably fried, as that would be to much voltage. Hate to say it; but you are probably gonna need a new one

How to change Emglo air compressor from 220v to 110v. Compressor is running at half speed when plugged into standard wall outlet. I bought the compressor new in the early "90's" and since then...

Hi Pete,
On the side of the motor on the label should be a wiring diagram. The diagram will tell you how to wire fro high 220v and low 110v ...
If the nameplate is single voltage only then the motor cannot be rewired for the lower voltage...
Also check the motor RPM nameplate as compared to the may have a 1725 motor and the newer ones a 3450 motor...that would give them double the RPM's if the gearing or pulley sizes are the if you have the right voltage and the RPM's of the motor are the lower, then you possibly could change the pulley sizes to speed up the compressor...

Lots to check and think about...

110v lcd tv was plugged to 22ov outlet

Hello nik286, hi, check first the label at the back of the TV, look for a voltage input something like a 90V-240V, if you see this, its an autovolt system, this type of power supply input is standard nowadays. Assuming your asking what would be damage, this could be anything from the fuse, thermal resistor, rectifier diodes, and the regulator IC of the power supply board.

Good day mate, no problem you can plug your dvd direct to your outlet since it indicates 100 - 240V it only means your player is capable of having either 110V 0r 220V.

note: also try to check 1st if you will see a voltage selector at the back of your dvd player. it's either a slide switch indicating 110 or 220V. if no sign of this selector no problem you can plug your player straight to your socket.
