    Hey,

    My sister bought my DS from Japan and it came with the Japanese adapter, so I can't use it here in Australia unless I have something to convert it to the standard here. So here's the thing, I just got a multi adapter converter, I plug the Japanese adapter in it and then plug it into the standard Australian plugs. It doesn't work, can anyone explain why this happens or perhaps if I need a special converter adapter in particular?

    just check if the adapter have only 110v ? if yes then you already blew the adapter by putting it into 220-240v Australian.

    I'm not sure whats what so I'm just going to list down what it says on the adapter:

    Input: AC100V 50/60Hz

    But further down it says

    Input: AC120V 60Hz

    The Adapter Converter thingo says 250V

    So judging what you're saying... I'm screwed? [​IMG]

    The "adapter converter thingo" is called a transformer

    This might sound dumb, but have you made sure that socket you used works? Plug in a GBASP (or some electrical device that can be charged) and see if that works.

    Also check to see if that transformer steps up currents from 100V - 110V (or something) to at least 240V. Check out the manual for it.

    Please excuse my poor terminology, I humbly thank you for the help so far, though, whats a GBASP?

    Goodness I'm an idiot [​IMG] Well I can't seem to find my GBASP, though I might consider getting a USB DS charger. Would anyone happen to know where to get one in Australia?

    EDIT: I've been scouting around, and I think I've found a trustworthy company.. sort of. Has anyone ever used this service before? If so, how does it work? Would you recommend it?

    Of course I've heard of eBay, I was asking it perhaps someone had used the shop advertised. Do they live up to their claims sort of thing
