    I am considering buying a Classic NES series GBA SP.
    If I bought an American system and plugged in an Australian DS fat charger, would it work?
    IIRC, they use the same plug but I am wondering if there are different voltage levels.
    Just wondering because I don't even think Classic NES Series SPs were released here - I hardly ever see them on eBay (except for international listings)

    Hey mate I'm pretty sure you can. As long as it's 110-240v, which I think it is.

    Just don't plug in an American Virtual Boy to an Aussie power outlet, it will blow up lol.

    If I were you I'd go ahead and buy it.

    EDIT: Just had a quick google for you and you sure can use a Aus DS Charger on a US GBASP http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/archive/i...php/t-1538.html

    That's good [​IMG]
    I don't want to go blind so I probably won't get a virtual boy >_>
    I'll probably also get a GBA flashcart for pirating games homebrew and emulation [​IMG]

    What's Australian voltage coming out of the wall?

    110, or 240?

    US is 110, so if aussie is 110, US electronics will work fine. If 240, then you'll have to go to an electronics store and find a device that lowers the voltage to 110

    they use different plugs anyway, so that should not be a problem. Anyway, the GBA itself is technically identical if I recall correctly, at least the input voltage should be the same. Just use the charger that fits into your outlet.

    It's better to be sure contact Nintendo Australia.

    But from my own experience with my DS it should work.
