    Hey guys can anyone with a wii u console check their box/console/manuel for the power input needed.

    I have imported a USA Wii U to Australia and need to know the Wattage required to use on a Step-Down converter.

    So I need....

    Input - Volts
    Input - Amps

    Please if anyone could that would be amazballs

    If you have an imported console, why not just look on the power brick itself?

    60hz, thank you so much

    Recapp

    Console PSU = 120W (120v X 1.1A)
    Controller PSU =24W (120v X 200mA)

    So all i need is a 200w step down converter for here in Aus. (probably will get a 300w one anyway)
    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    It has been ordered, yay, should work.

    I get the AUS console on Friday anyway but I want to use the USA one for imports and USA eShop.

    Just use the power brick from your AUS console. It should be the same, minus the power differences.

    They'll be used for different things in different rooms and I'd like a permanent setup... so I already bought the step down on ebay for 40 bucks, not bad.
    When they have been out for a while, I'll get spare AC adapters for the AUS machines then.

    Is the ac adapter from the older wii the same as the wii u? can it be reused?
