Yes, it will blow the charger, buy a local charger, they should be cheap enough.

US Nintendo DS-Lite with converter problems in South Africa


Hi,

It should work straight out with a step down transformer. That is of course if the mains supply in South Africa is 240 240 and the unit being American is 110.

This is of course not unless it was initially tried without a transformer or stepdown converter which would mean that the charger/adapter has been fried and therefore damaged.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Voltage change to 120V


You can change the plug out but I very much doubt that your toaster will even heat. The way toasters work is by a resistance wire that heats up because of the current going through it that causes the wire to heat up. Since the wire that is in your toaster is designed to heat up under 220V drawing 9 amps. SInce you are now supplying only 120V then since I=V/R then in the first instance 9=220/R or 9*R=220 =24.444 Ohms Since in the second instance your V=120 then your Current =4.9 Amps and this will not be enough wattage to heat up the wires.

I have a crosley CR8005A and i conected in my country (CHILE, SOUTH AMERICA) and here we have 220 v. can it fix it?


You need a step-down voltage converter to convert 220V to 120V.

Amazon has them. One example - http://www.amazon.com/VCT-VT-300-Voltage-Transformer-Converts/dp/B000J65PJQ/ref=sr_1_13?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1365005058&sr=1-13&keywords=convert+120V+to+220 or http://www.amazon.com/Voltage-Converter-220-240-110/dp/B001ES8YY6/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1365005058&sr=1-2&keywords=convert+120V+to+220.

Look for words like "voltage converter", "voltage transformer" and "travel"

I live in South Africa and my son has brought back a Panasonic shaver from the USA. Can our std 220v power outlet be suitable to charge the shaver? The power pack only mentions 120v input AC?


If the power supply that came with the unit says only 120V, you must use a voltage converter with the unit. If you plug the charger into your 220V system without a convertr, it will damage the charger

My last reference was incorrect. I have a Sony CDF in Greece. Will it play in the USA?


The voltage in Greece is 220volts and in USA is 120v. Now depending on where you bought it from there might be a voltage selector at the back ( near or inside the battery compartment you will find a slide switch - you will have to use a flat blade screwdriver to change voltage). Mostly only Asian models have 120/220v selector because Japan is 120v and the rest of Asia is 220.
Another way to find out if its multi voltage, check the sticker or engraving at the back it will be mentioned on it.

Bought my headphones in South Africa, now living in the UK. My AC adaptor to power my charger of my headphones is not functioning properly. Could this be caused by the incorrect power adaptor, as it...


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. You can check if the power output in South Africa and UK is the same. If you have 110 or 240V in africa check if the Voltage in UK is 110 or 220V aswell. If it is the same it only means that the adaptor is bad. If you can go to a store in UK find an adapter that is compatible with the headphone you can test it and see if it will work.

Thanks for using Fixya.

no, it will definately run fine in Australia.Electricity in South Africa is 230 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second which is the same as Australia. The voltage in Aus and SA will be somewhere between 220/240v most of the time.
