The operating voltage of the AC Adapter Kit/Compact Power Adapter/Battery Charger is 100V - 240V and conforms with international standards. Voltage may be unstable in some countries/regions. Please take care when using the device. The shape of the plug varies depending on the country/region. Make sure the conversion plug adapter is the right shape for your location.

Can i play my ipod nano overseas


With the proper AC adapter for the country or countries you are going to visit while overseas. You need the adapter to recharge the nano when its battery runs out. So, load up your nano with songs, videos and photos, take the USB wall charger, the 30-pin or Lightning USB cable and the AC adapter and enjoy your overseas trip and your nano !

On the back of my Canon battery charger, CB-2LW, is a note to see the instruction manual for use countries other than the USA. I find no such information. Will I be able to use this charger in Scotland? ...


I had the exact same question. I found a copy of the "manual" here:
akamaipix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/280/280CB2LW.PDF

It just states that "the charger can be used with a power supply between
100 and 240V AC. Contact your nearest Canon service
center for information about plug adapters for overseas
use.
• To prevent equipment breakdowns and excessive
heating, do not connect this charger to voltage
converters used by travelers, or special power sources"

I think it should be safe for use in Scotland with a plug adapter (not converter).

Using battery charger overseas


it's alway suggested that you simply use plug adaptors to change shape of plugs for overseas-do not reduce voltage since most all chargers including yours support 220 or 110

Can I use the battery charger BC-400 overseas?


No, you cannot. This is due, not only to the shape of the plug, but also to the fact that the AC cable for BC-400 do not comply with overseas regulations. Though the label on BC-400 indicates the voltage rating (100-240V), the durability of the power cord for each type of BC-400 differs respectively. Minolta has no responsibility for any damage or loss incurred by use of AC adapter or BC-400 not warranted in the region. The mentioned electric cords may not be inseted to the power receptacle. In this case please obtain the transform adaptor at the local dealers. (Please be noted that especially in China there are 5 or 6 types of plug .) Warning: Please be careful when pulling in/out the cord from the power receptacle for the electric shock prevention.

Charging battaries oversea.


The battery chargers that are included with JVC camcorders sold in the U.S. are designed to operate on power from 110 to 240 Volts at 50 or 60 Cycles AC. All that is needed to use the battery charger overseas is a plug adapter to connect into a foreign electrical outlet. These are generally available from a store which carries electrical supplies.

If this is true, then why does the manual for my new PowerShot SD1100 IS say, "Do not connect compact power adapters or battery chargers to devices such as electrical transformers for foreign travel because it may lead to malfunctions, excessive heat generation, fire, electric shock or injury."

Is this just a standard disclaimer in case something weird happens by using a transformer to charge the battery?

Overseas Use


Yes. The power supplies and battery chargers supplied with all Powershot Digital Cameras are designed to work on input voltages from 100-240 volts (50/60 Hz). The only item that you may need is a plug adapter that allows you to plug the U.S. type power supply or battery charger into the foreign type wall outlet. Plug adapters should be easily available at a local electronics store.
