If a North American 3DS was taken to the PAL region, is it possible to use the N.A. charger in PAL on a voltage converter? Will it do any sort of damage? I would appreciate some help. :)


To admins: If there's already a topic like this, could you post the link? :)

I think there is a similar topic. If you use a voltage (and pin) convertor, it'll be fine.

Nintendo chargers only accept the voltages of the regions they ship into so if you take them to other regions, you need to make sure you convert to the correct voltage. Most other gear these days seems to accept any voltage, so only the pin configuration needs sorting.

What's the pin? Sorry, I'm not that good with this kind of thing.

As it make sure the pins on the plug physically fit into the socket.
