G'day TIA

You do not state where you are coming from, nor what voltage your equipment needs

However, here in Australia we have many "2-dollar" shops with international adapters for USA - Europe - Africa ... all costing around $8 - $12

Most of the battery chargers I see are labelled as "Input voltage 110v to 250v" so from that point of view, your stuff should be okay
The biggest worry is USA-made 110volt stuff coming out to a 240volt country ... I've seen it done and while the sparks and smoke don't last long, .... !

Regards, Phil

sorry, shoulda said i'm in the UK. the socket on the charger is 2 prong and came w/ a 3-prong adapter for the UK, i'm assuming the Japanese use 2 prongs but i don't know about their power ratings etc.

Hello there, you will need an adapter like these :

I am sure you can find one at your local store or get it from the internet but it should look like those ones. The price depends on the quality of the materials. You dont need anything more than this because your charger on the back must say INPUT:110V-240V~ 50/60Hz, which means it works with any voltage worldwide. If it says something different please let us know.
