    Hi,

    Is the Wii power adapter bespoke, hard wired and region rated? I need to get a US Wii (all GC games are US), so need to know if I can just use a UK style plug and connect it into the transformer (or just cut the end off and refit with uk style), or if I need a step-down convertor.

    Thanks/...

    You'll need a stepdown, as the US adaptor is only rated 100-120 Volts, which is a bit of a pain. You could try your luck to see if Nintendo UK would send you one (say it broke or something), or even sell you one.
