Hi all!

I'm a newbie in plug computer, and new in this forum.

I've just received my Plug computer. I'm very excited... BUT!! I have a great doubt.

The model that I have says that power supply is 110 - 220 VAC 50 Hz, and it have a fixed US connector, it not comes with a power cord adaptor... what power supply must I use? I live in Chile - Sudamerica, the power grid here is 220/230 VAC 50 Hz, and wall sockets are three holes in a row. About all electronic devices are compatible with US standard, only replacing the US connector.

Can I connect the Plug computer directly to wall socket?, but I afraid that if the plug uses 110 VAC, then it will be fried  Grin. I don't want my Plug computer to explode  Undecided

I must to connect it to a power adaptor from 220 to 110 VAC ?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

The power supply will be fine. We have a number the 110-220V plugs here in Australia running on mains of 230V 50 Hz.

The third pin is for Earth Ground which the plug does not use. (Double insulated)

You can remove the supplied mains pins and use a power cord (instructions some where else on this forum)
