    I don't know what voltage the Phillipines has.

    It might be 240 volts.

    If so, your US stuff won't work.

    But the question is, is their voltage 110 volts or 240 volts.

    Two of my chargers already exploded from plugging XD
    Anyway, if I remember correctly we use 220 here, most of the time anyway. I'm not sure about Mindanao since I'm in Luzon. Best try will be to buy or borrow a local charger...

    We use 220v. Got my in-box 110v orig ds charger boom in our 220 socket.

    Just look for the same as the picture above. Cellphone shops and malls sometimes have those.

    In Australia we have 240 volts, and one sad day I completely lost my head and plugged my Japanese Skeleton Saturn (110v) into the mains (usually I use a power converter), and the damn power board blew up.

    Smoke went everywhere inside the beautiful see-through shell.


    Anyway, I switched out the power board with another Saturn, and now it works again... I had to give the inside a good clean, though. The lens too....

    But I use an Extension Cord which has different holes. It Has the =,/\ ,/|\, :, which me and my cousins use to charge our DS.
    We use the Australian Charger, the one with /\ and it works great!
