    XOOM USA product in the UK - Charger

    Hello, I've ordered a Motorola Xoom wifi version from USA, but now realising that I do not have a clue what to do about the charger. Can I buy a USA-UK plug adaptor and use it with USA charger? Has anyone tried this and any problems?

    I understand that I can buy a UK charger for 14-15 but I wanted to make sure that I don't spend the money before asking the specialists here, thank you for you assistance in advance.

    My Canadian bought Xoom, which has a charge with standard North American flip-over prongs is almost certainly the same as that provided with a US model. It says that it is a Model FMP5632A. Input 100-240V 50/60Hz 0.6A. Output 12v (positive) 1.5 A. This suggest that all you will need is the mechanical adaptor to plug into a UK 230V/13A 50Hz supply.

    The US charger unit is quite large, rectangular, and lays "sideways" to the two US prongs. So make sure your UK/US adapter is basically flat on the surface that has the sockets, without any form of recess or ridge around the edge.

    I live in Ireland and bought my xoom in USA...I bought a cheapie shaver adapter when I got home, only cost a couple of euro. you just need a means to plug it into the socket, you don't need to change voltage. Bring your xoom plug into your local electrical shop and they'll show you what to buy if you're not sure. Please don't spend 15!

    yep, i have a US xoom and live in egypt and have no problems charging it. just slapped a plug adapter, no need to change voltage as the charger is good for 110V - 240V.
