    But do you have a transformer for your PC, then you could chop off the plug and put one off our,s on it.

    240 to 110 adaptors are quite easy to get hold of - check this out:

    Or you could read the writing on the transformer, you'll find a large percentage of them have a variable input voltage saying 110V-250V input... Meaning any voltage inbetween.

    Thumbs up

    You might be lucky -

    email the seller to ask the Charger Voltage range. Some appliances will work from 0V - 240V including 110V. Most Dell/ Toshiba laptops are like this - hence lots of the voltage packs can be used with, 12V, 110V and 240V.

    We buy specialist 110V equipment from USA, swop the plugs over, change a connection and hey presto.

    If 110V is only way - then you will need a 110V Transformer and the required Euro 3 pin plug.
