Open Question

Our new Wii with AC adaptor (Input 120V 52W 60Hz). Standard power outlets in Philippines is 220C. Do I need to get a stepdown transformer for this? If yes what wattage do I get? Alternatively, I was offered a "Wii power supply" from a gaming shop (made in China). Please advise the best solution

SOURCE: It does not turn on, remains in stand by mode.

I cannot be COMPLETELY sure of this so be careful, but doesn't the PS3's board cater for both types of power supply and therefore a step down transformer is not needed? Check the labels on it just in case, but be wary I CANNOT be certain of this...

SOURCE: Converting 120v AC adapter to 220v AC adapter

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.

Check Amperage of your Polaroidd and the power adapter. Same voltage but higher amperage might fry your Polaroid.

Here in Australia we have different power sockets and power supply As I understand the machine I have has 120V 60HZ 1025 W What do I need to use it here in Australia? Do I need a new plug or a...


good day.

first,the power socket,,try to see the power plug of your machine and the power socket you have..compare it..when its compatible no need to replace,,if not you need a socket adapter.or if not available buy a new plug (if your plug is not compatible to the socket)

secondly,you don't need a transformer if your ac supply in Australia is 120v..
if the supply in your place bigger than 120v...like 220v,230 or 250v..you have to use a step-down transformer with input of what you have in Australia and the output is 120v..and of course pay attention for the wattage of transformer to avoid over heat or burn..I suggest to buy 1500w...

thank you and good luck

The original power specs


As I search the internet I found out no replacement for this kind of the adaptor model number 090-02180-13, there are some people looking for this kind of adaptor is a faulty a pervasive problem with the TV. There are literally hundreds of complaints on the internet. Most deal with a faulty AC Adaptor and the inability of the company to provide a replacement part.
I have a solution for this adaptor problem we better improvised the parts inside. The faulty parts of this adaptor arise in the transformer. This transformer is easily to burnt because of lower amperage. So we make it higher amperage so it can resist the load heat and cannot burnt easily.
Maybe you can do this for yourself, open the adaptor case, when open already look for the transformer, the visual picture of transformer is a bulky metal with many windings. Take this out and bring it to electronic shop that know how to rewind a transformer. Tell them to reworks or rewind the transformer, only the output voltage will be change input is the same. This is the

NEW SPECIFICATION:
  • INPUT 100-240 V
  • OUTPUT + 24VOLT DC AT 12 AMP
  • 12VOLT AT 6 AMP.
This is the result of new specification when the reworks or rewind is finish ,put it back to the adapter box,and then you can use it.This is higher amperage I mean it to you before,it can resist overheating.If ever happens that you can't find in your place know how to do reworks of the transformer here in philippines i do the rewind or reworks of the transformer ,but the problem is.very far to your place it needs shipment to carry this out .I price you 120 dollars including shipment and i assure it to you that adaptor will last long because of higher amperage .
When i search i found a site that can make an ac adaptor only you give the new specification and give where you are using the adaptor give the brand name PLTV-32 and they will make it..try this option also ..LCDPAYLESS.COM
