UK adapter



I'm from Canada and am in the UK. I want to confirm that can use an electrical adapter to charge my playbook. Does anyone know? The last thing I want is for my book to blow out.

The charger that came with your PlayBook works on 110V-240V. International models even come with changeable plugs for US/UK/Europe. If yours didn't you'll need a plug shape adapter.

Re: UK adapter

Just returned from UK, I charged my playbook there using the supplied charger and plugging that into a standard north american to UK adaptor.

The small print on the charger states the charger is compatible 130v to 240v
