    Electronic items with built in Auto Converters

    Hi. I'd like to make purchases from the US. I've seen various deals that I'd like to take up (perhaps some of them are useful to someone on the forums), however I cannot find out if electronic equipment has built in auto converters so I can purchase a 2 pin to 3 pin converter for use in the UK.

    A few of the items I'm looking at are: Nintendo DS Lite from Amazon [amazon.com/Nin…S... 2&sr=8-1] and the Philips 7" Photo Frame [http://www.amazon.com/Philips-7-I...02&sr=8-1]

    I'm told 90% of the items have these auto converters built in, but is there any way of making sure? Amazon has no information regarding the power supply of these items.

    All your help is appreciated, Zak.

    repped :thumbsup: Do you know what other type of electronic items they bought back?

    It's pretty difficult to say really, in most cases these days items with a dedicated power supply (rather than using a kettle lead or figure of eight lead to directly plug into the mains) tend to be dual voltage and will run either side of the Atlantic only needing a plug adapter. However I've obviously only seen a comparatively small number of items so can't say for sure about the items you are looking at.
