Read the fine print on the power supply (the part that plugs into the wall). You may find 120-240 V or VAC, meaning that you don't need any converter - just a plug adapter. You'll probably also find 50-60 hz as the frequency range, meaning that you're good to go with just a plug adapter.
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 !
I use these and the previous model without any issues.
1. They must be plugged into the wall socket. It's okay to use an extension cord between the adapter and the wall, but never a surge suppressor or UPS 2. The master need to be connected to you router 3. To test your connection do the following -Plug the master into the wall at the router location -Plug the slave into the outlet where the computer will be -Press and hold the setup button on the slave unit only for 3-5 seconds The leds on the slave will flash for a second or two and then turn solid. The number of solid lights you see tell you what your connection speed will be 0-no connection, 1-<10MB , 2=-10-30MB, 3->30MB.
I always unplug the ethernet cables from the adapter when testing, but I don't know if that is necessary.
I have never gotten less then 2 leds in my house, but it's new.
Try selecting 2G only if you're not too bothered about video calling or mobile browsing. This tends to give a much better signal stability. Also preserves battery life too.
I've found in the past with my K800i, if the 3G signal was weak or patchy, it didn't always switch over to 2G mode, meaning that more often than not calls were not able to be received nor made.
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?
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.
