If I buy a Japanese 3DS, is there some sort of adapter that I need?

From my knowledge, if you use electronics from other Countries in a Canadian/American outlet the whole thing stops working completely because of the voltage or w/e. Can anyone confirm?

I've owned a Japanese Wii and Japanese PS2 and I never had a problem with plugging them in to an American outlet(not sure about Canada though).

I see. Yeah Canadian and American outlets are the same. The reason I ask is because my friend said he hooked up an N64 in the Philippines, then he turned the console on and it exploded or something. >_>
Then my PC has a voltage switch, which I recently learned that if I went to Europe and switched that voltage switch the PC would probably stop working for good, while here if I switch it it won't work, but not permanently. Just the whole different Countries different voltage sorta thing.

I have a Japanese 3DS.

The voltage difference between Japan and US is 10v.

Japan uses 120v.

US uses 110v.

You will use the Japanese charger with no issues.

But if he's buying a Japanese 3DS LL, then it won't come with a charger.
Luckily, US 3DS chargers work just fine with Japanese 3DSs.

JP systems work fine in the US. In the EU, I recommend buying a charger locally and using that.
