well, i think your days is made, i believe that is the same one as i bought, in any case the specifications are the same so it should work. i can't beleive the price, mine cost 12.50€... it might have a british plug type (since the price is in £), however this is no problem, you will need only a plug adaptor and these seem to be very easy to find (my local hardware store has them) and very cheap.

remember to pay attention to the positive / negative when you attach the tip !

Excellent :-) ..I have like 3 UK plug adaptors, so there is no problem there.. I only hope there is nothing wrong with th epower suply as it did smoke a little before I quickly pulled it out .. also I have found a specialised forum for those "electricity proz" where I am going to ask about an equivalent to the skytronic gadget.

thanks again for help!!

if you get something like the one i have, it doesn't matter if your original power supply is damaged or not, because you will not need it ; you will use the new one instead (you don't need the original power supply in addition). so the only worry is, was it the power supply, or the eb 1150 which was smoking ?? (i hope it was the power supply !).

can you post a link for the electricity forum (if it's in english) ? i could use some help sometimes !

I was lucky not to have plugged in the ebookwise.. I only tried it out on the power supply..that was the smoking thing :-) ..as for an english electricity forum, I only know this: http://www.electricityforum.com/ ...but I am glad to hear the skytronic thing does not need anything else.. and will basically charge my ebookwise instéad the original power source

Set any universal power supplies to output 12V with the center of the plug positive. Since USB only outputs 5V this is why an USB adapter will not work.

If the universal power supply has an input switch be sure to set it to match your AC. 110 or 220. Failure to do this will cause you power supply to smoke.

Hi there,

I've been lugging around a big voltage adaptor (about 700g) to plug my american ebook charger into for the last three years because I didn't know there were UK chargers with the right plugs.

So did you buy this charger? Are the plugs correct for the ebookwise? How heavy is it (Amazon says packaged weight 300 g, but how much is the charger on it's own)?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Maybe there should be a sticky thread detailing which chargers are right for which part of the world? With relevant links... and maybe we should send the info to kascarlett so she can include it whenever she sells an ebookwise outside of America.
