    I live in the UK and have ordered my Nexus One from the US, without a UK adaptor.

    My question is what voltage the standard AC adaptor uses, as the UK runs 240V typically. I can get hold of a cheap US-UK power adaptor that doesn't do any voltage changes, so I was wondering whether that would be sufficient. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    A US to UK converter will work perfectly, I believe the majority of us UK-ers have done exactly that.

    When did you order? Are you excited? :D

    Thanks very much :)

    I ordered it on Monday, it's in-flight now to EMA, and should be at my local depot tomorrow morning. I'm going to collect it from the depot over the weekend.

    And yes, dead excited!

    Thanks Herojames too, I'll just use the various adaptors I have at home then :D

    be careful, i used a standard usb adapter and the plug exploded. i now stick to the supplied us adapter and a shaver plug.

    A standard AC-USB adaptor? I'm planning on using a US-UK travel adaptor and then use the supplied US AC-adaptor, that's fine, right?
