Gameboy

I recently purchased a gameboy advance sp from game (pre owned, good deals if you can find one in good condition and they aren't at all advertised, you have to ask) but I got home played for a while and everything was good. Then I decided to charge it and realised they had given me a US charger. Should I bring back just the charger to be replaced or do I need to bring back the gameboy advance sp because of voltage and region coding? I ask since it is like new mine and don't want to replace with one in worse condition.

best to phone and ask

can you use one of those travel plug changers but obviously a reverse one, not sure if there will be voltage issues?

lol i just read the whole thing, as craig david said give them a call.

don't know, how can you tell? Does it make a difference?

i would imagine that if you used a uk charger on it from a uk power supply it might damage it. there should be a number on the back like gb 001 or something. google it and find out

Nah they're all the same, i've got an HK import SP with a UK charger.

To the OP.. As long as the charger says 110-230v (or similar) on it you can just get an adapter. I'd definitely ring them ask for a proper charger though.

tnx for ur help (didn't want my gba advance sp to be changed it looked so freaking new)

how much was your sp ?

I heard it's actually illegal to provide an electronic item without the correct plug / supply (unless otherwise stated, I guess)

I don't know how 'true' this is, but it came from a reliable source a couple of years ago!

Go back and tell them their mistake. Unless they can prove they sold you a US/whatever Gameboy they should just provide you an adapter free of charge.
