Hello, Tempers! I often buy many (if not all) my electronics from the US and I always need to use a voltage converter in order to use them. Why buy all the way from the US? Because local stores are greedy bastards whom often sell for %1000 the original price...... no, seriously... Anyway! Does anybody know how I can change voltage requirement by tampering with the insides of a given device? For example: I bought remote controlled power switches to use on my Air-Conditioners (it's freggin' hot here in the Middle East!). I forgot about the voltage thingy and I'd like to use them rather than returning them. Is there a way to permanently convert their power input requirements to use on my local 210-250 volts power grid? That's not the only example, but one of many. I'm not exactly a professional when it comes to soldering but it wouldn't hurt to try (except when it comes to burns!).
