Power variations
« on: September 10, 2013, 01:25:18 AM »
Hi, I'm a newbie on the forum, still waiting anxiously for my nexus 4 which is coming from Canada. I live in Beijing China and am a little concerned about charging my new baby here.
Will the standard charger with an adaptor for the different plug be OK? I would hate to fry the phone after receiving it. From what I can find out, the charger should handle the 240V power here without a seperate transformer.
Thanks in advance for advice.

I would just find a US adapter locally and use this and the included USB cable for charging, so long as the adapter has an output of at least 1 Amp. It can be more though because the phone will only draw what it needs...

Thanks for your help, I guess you are saying I won't need a transformer, just the adapter for the different plug configuration and the phone will deal with power from 110 to 250V? That's what the user guide that I've read online seems to indicate as well.

Yes that's right. The AC adapter deals with the volt of the AC outlet and converts that to the voltage needed for our devices.
I suggest you find a local electrical store and buy an AC adapter, it doesn't matter whether it's mage by LG, Motorola, Apple or one of the Chinese or Korean OEM's, so long as it provides at least 1 Amp, had has a USB output and plugs into AC outlets in China.
