I recently purchased a C4380 All-In-One and will be using it over the next few months in Europe. Can I simply use a plug adapter or do I need a DC power adapter?

If there is a difference in power system you surely need a DC adapter.

No, you will need a step-up transformer (power adapter) and not just the simple plug adapter, as voltage in the US is 110V, while in continental Europe it is 230~250V. You can purchase this at any electronics shop.

Hope that helps. Kindly "accept" this solution if you found it helpful.

Thanks.

Why wont my nookhd wont charge


If it\'s only two months old it may have a defective charging cable or adapter. If it\'s a new purchase and you can return it. To check to see if it might be the adapter and not the charging cable you have a few cheap ways to test this out.



General charging recommendations.



If you get power leave it on charge at least 3+ hours. This is the minimum time required if the battery is totally drained. If the Nook turns itself on during this process manually turn it off. The battery charges faster and more deeply if it\'s truely powered down. Charging more than 3 hours won\'t hurt it. In fact some manufacturers claim leaving thier products on charge for an additional hour after the charging light glows green is good as it leaves a slightly deeper charge on the battery. Also I believe leaving it alone for that hour allows it to cool the battery. Most manufacturers also recommend tottaly draining the battery at least once a month and then fully recharging it 1+ hours after charging light is green. They claim this helps the battery maintain a healthy charge and extends the battery life. Simply disconnect any charging cables, turn the unit on and just let it set. Don\'t touch it peroid just leave it alone until it turns off because the battery is totally drained. Then just plug it in and leave it. Only if the unit automatically turns itself on do you manually turn it back off.



Well that\'s about in in keeping the battery life and charge at its maximum.



If your AC power adapter has gone south there are only three ways to get around this. 1. Purchase a generic AC to USB adapter. 2. Purchase a genetic DC to USB adapter. Most of these can be cheaply purchased at most drug stores ect.. these days. You can even get DC to USB ones at dollar stores such as Dollar Tree. Good way to maintain your battery if your AC one goes south or you lose house current.



One other way to charge your battery is to plug the USB cable into your computer. Some manufacturers don\'t recommend this as this more often than not doesn\'t fully tank up your battery.



You can also get replacement charging cables at the same place you got the adapters. Places such as Walgreens, or CVS often have these at around five dollars a pop.

Can i use this lap top with plug in and not a battery?? where is the plug in?


I BELIEVE so. Some laptops require the Battery to at least be in the laptop, whether they are good, or not.
Others will allow the laptop to run off of the AC adapter (Charger), with the Battery not installed.

Gateway Support > Gateway MD26 series of Notebook PC's > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2364


Click on the - Support Documents - tab.
(Drivers / Applications / BIOS / Patches / Support Documents / etc)

Click on - Product Views - in the list.
Click on - Left View
Power connector

This is where the AC adapter (Charger) plugs in.

Examples, (Note US and Europe have different power plug ends),

http://www.batterytech.com/products.aspx?category=ac_adapter&brand=gateway&model=MD2614U&pid=AC-1990111

[The laptop uses DC electricity. Just like the Battery it has, and flashlight batteries. DC Voltage.
The AC adapter (Charger) converts your household, or business, electricity from AC to DC.
(19 Volts DC. In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC ]

I need a new ac/dc adaptor for my pdv 709 ac100-240v 50/60hz 0.5a output dc 9v 2a efficiency level 1v factory id a


If you have the original adapter simply purchase a generic adapter with the same connection type, amp/current and voltage. Otherwise it will show on the products sticker, normally with the model and serial number, what input the ac/dc adapter uses. Im assuming from the information given you need to purchase a 9 volt adapter with an amp or current rating of 500mA or 0.5 amps. I hope this helps. Good luck.

I am traveling to italy. My sony dvd 101 handycam


In Europe and other countries the voltages are higher and you'll need an adapter to plug your charger into.
You can usually find them sold at department stores near or in the luggage section.

Europe-to-usa power supply problem?


Hello Sarah, I brought mine in Europe too and found out that they are rated for 220 VAC while in the US you will need a 110 VAC power adapter so if this is your case you need to buy a replacement.

I have traveled to Europe. Australia and China. As this is a laptop I believe your power supply is that often black box in the middle of the electric wire you plug into your laptop. I we operate on 110 volt 60 cycle electricity. The bulk of the rest of the world operates as 240 volts and mostly 50 cycles. The power supplies for laptop I used overseas indicated they operated from 110 - 240 volts and 50 to 60 cycles approximately (small print on the adapter). If your adapter does not handle 240 volt and 50 - 60 cycle requirement you may need to secure another before leaving. The real challenge is to have the right plug adapter for the country you are in. Our two and three prong plugs do not work anywhere else I've been without adapters excluding soem bathrooms for electric shavers only and some universal plugs I have seen installed in China on my last trip (but even in China they were rare). My friend bought two different versions of adapters I believe at Radio Shack - one was a small bag of adapters that covered all of Europe and more recently a single adapter with sliders that could adjust to all the separate adapters he purchased before. I had the experience of buying an adapter in China where I do not speak Mandarin -- pointing at a British adapter and drawing the US plug got me what I wanted however you may wish to solve this problem before you arrive in Europe. Assuming you purchase adapters before leaving the clerk at the store may be able to confirm the suitability of your power supply for general european operation, I tended to double check with the local hotel staff or friends keeping in mind that all counties and some areas can be different.

12 DC ADAPTER


Hi,

Try looking for a Jensen JE2043 with identical specs for the adapter: Input :100-240VAC (50-60Hz); Output : 12Vdc 6Amp. You can try ebay .

Alternately a 13.8/6A regulated power supply for communications equipment would also work. You simply need to hardwire the crown plug and red/black wires.

Good luck and kind regards.
