Default 110V recharger to be used for 220V

Hi guys,

I live in Turkey and most possibly I will get a camera from US. The problem is (I guess) the recharger I will get will be for 110V. But in my country the output is 220V. What do I need to use the recharger in my house?? transformator, adapter or what? Please guide me.. Also if you can tell me where to find the product I wil be glad.. I hope I was clear..

I use a traveling converter kit ( the 30-40 $ ) kind with my NiMH slow charger in Egypt ( 220v, 50 Hz) , and it works without problem .
But since they use the same plug as US ones, one time I forgot to use the converter , and plug directly the charger in the wall Pouf, smoke got out of the thing :mrgreen:

Hi, it depends on the camera manufacturer, Minolta supplied a 2 pin charger with my 7Hi that's 110 to 220v so no convertor needed, having said that it's not a very good charger and I bought a 1Hr Rayovac charger when I was in the USA at Christmas, it's PSU is 110v only so I had to replace it, however I found out later that the Ever Ready 1Hr charger is 110 to 220v!.

Hi

thanks for the replies. I guess I can find something like those you own in any store. I will also try to tell the company to give us a 220 volt recharger instead of the 110. Maybe it would work .
