Are the European Nintendo Switch units the same as the American/Canadians?

    I've reserved a Nintendo Switch (Neon Edition) which I'll be getting early next month and thought I could ship it to US/CA which I'm perfectly fine with but what's the drawbacks?

    My idea is to sell the Switch console-only and then sell the Joy-Cons and all that separately. I'd send it tracked so the buyer would for sure get it on time and I would start from as little as 99 cents/pennies (USD/GBP/EUR) giving the chance to everyone.

    Alrighty then. I'll go for it and post it when I receive. :)

    The UK has three pins, two below and one up in the middle.

    I know, I wish the 2 pin was the standard for everywhere in the world. :P

    The UK has the lowest death rate from electrical injuries in Europe....

    Uk domestic properties operate at 230v AC although I would expect ninty to be using something that can operate within the range of 100-240v AC 50/60hz, I don't care to look and can't remember if it comes with interchangeable pins.

    You could just add an adaptor.
