About charging an European Vita abroad.

#1fubji18Posted 9/7/2013 5:13:06 AM
I have a question for European gamers who travel with their Vita.
Can you charge it in countries like US and Japan? Obviously, the plugs are completely different but will a simple adapter do the trick? Or do I need a voltage convertor?

Thanks!

Should be fine, I havent taken my vita off the continent yet but it worked in spain. Shouldnt make a difference with a adapter, I bought my og ds in usa and charged it 99% of its life through a uk adapter

I'm not entirely sure. I imported an American 3DS (I live in Australia) and I brought an Australian charger, which works fine. You might want to try buying a region specific charger if you can.

Yeah, buying a charger while in Japan might be a solution if my euro charge doesn't work.

Thing is, Europe (and Australia) use ~240V. But US and Japan use ~100V. So I was having doubt about plugging a 240V charger on a 100V socket.

It'll work fine so long as you have the correct plug, ps vita charging "bricks" are multi voltage and wil take anything between 100v and 240v.

I already have the right adapters so it should be OK. Thanks !
