If you think sending your unit to Bose is expensive, just buy a step down transformer. 220-240V input/ 120V output...this is where you plug your US standard 110-120V BWR. Bit of hassle though, transformer has to go wherever the BW Radio go.

Good Luck.

    If you want to use it in the UK thou, you should get the internal powersuppy and transformer replaced to a UK one.

What to do when I bought a Cuisinart DLC 7 Pro for 110 Volts (USA), but I need a one for 220 Volts (Europe). What to do?


Hi. Unless you're happy to run it from an ugly transformer then I doubt if you'll get that machine working.

You could contact cuisinart directly and see if they can supply a motor but personally I'd look for something more modern and put that back on ebay.

Kitchenaid mixer. I am moving to a 220 v country. I have been told changing out the control board and speed circuit will enable me to use my mixer there ? Is that true?


Kitchenaid does not recommend using a US model mixer overseas since the frequency is different. Here in the States we use 120 Volts 60 Hertz, it Europe they use 240 Volts 50 Hertz so even if you were to feed it the correct voltage, the frequency would still be lower and the mixer would run slower and hotter causing shortened life of overheating.

I bougth reciprocating saw, model BJR 182Z and circle saw, BSS611Z while I was in the U.S.A.These tools use the 18 volt LXT Lithium-Ion battery BL 1830. I also bought this battery.However I am going to use...


Why can't you buy the 230 volt DC18RA charger in europe (amazon.europe country) and use it. I had the same issue yet i burned out the fuse in the 110 volt DC18RA charger because i plugged it into the wall just using an adaptor. Lesson learned. Therefore, my first solution was that i bought a converter from 220V-to 110 Volt. This showed me that my charger was done. So instead of getting another 110 volt charger sent here to Europe from Canada, I returned the converter and have on order a 230 volt input DC18RA charger from amazon.de which has the same 7.2-18V output. I have been told this will work yet the fear, and I don't know why, is that it will burn out the batteries in a year or so. It is difficult getting specific information from Makita, but I hope it all works out. Best of Luck for you

Using an European (220 volt) DS Lite Console in America (110 volt)


Yes this can be charged using a 110 volt with no problems. However you do need the outlet conversion plug in order for you to be able to plug it in to your wall. These can be bought at any major electronics store in your area.

Fried Epson Stylus Photo 2200 by plugging into 220 volts in Europe


Buy a new/refurbished printer from Epson.com. They are cheap, come with a 1 year exchange warranty and do great prints. Prices for All In Ones start at $36USD, the ink costs more. I check Epson's voltage and I only found 115V AC, so you must use a transformer. I would also get a CISS and Waste Ink Container at the following: http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store/
Saves tons of money and never change or buy another cartridge.
