    I have a PAL Wii and a JPN Wii. Can I use the power adapter from my PAL Wii on my JPN one?

    Any info?

    as long that the output is 12volts 3.7A your all good.

    i use the same power adapter on all of my wii's (US wii and japan wii)

    i even used the 12volts of a PC ATX power supply to power my wii, when i blew the power adapter by accidentally plugging a 110v power supply to a 220v wall socket

    Thats... fucking ghetto and awesome [​IMG]

    I set up a PSU to turn on when it is plugged in (ground the green cable with a black on the 20/24 pin connector) then used it to power a hard drive. Every hard drive I used that with burnt out after a while though...

    Ummm, no you aren't. Even going by what you just said.
    Fair play on the PC PSU game, thats cool, but as for using a JAP power lead on a PAL wii...
    If you plug a 110v PSU into a 230v wall socket, its gonna go bang

    All the Wiis work with the same power inside, so you can use any Wii as long as the adapter you use is right for your country.

    it think he knew how to choose the right PSU to use with both wiis
    using the other one with either wii would be bad so in fact using the same is the best option
    but i'd rather use sneek anyway

    btw for the PC PSU guy
    check that you use a 12V line not a -12V line
    they give MUCH less power
