    I have just read on the Sony website that the USA PSP comes with a 100V - 240V, 50/60Hz AC Power adaptor. Does this not mean that it will work in the UK ?.


    Thanks for any feedback

    You`ll just need a simple convertor.

    They are generally quite cheap.

    There is a site HERE that isnt bad. Quite quick delivery too.

    Other than that try down at your local electricleshop, one that sells all different wires, cables, plugs etc.... They should have one or at least point you in the right direction

    Why would you need one of these when the included power supply is multi-voltage?

    All you will need is a pin converter.

    What this means is you just plug in th epower lead from an xbox, video, dvd player, ps2 you know the sort. Plug on one end and a figure of eight connection on the other, cost about £2-3 if you don't have a million spare ones knocking around from old equipment!
