Does anyone know if there is a difference with the ichargers if it was purchased in the UK for use in North America?

Re: icharger

Shouldn't be for those that require a separate power supply. You just need a power supply that has 120v input with whatever your icharger requires for output. The ichargers themselves require DC input so it's the power supply that would change since europe uses 220v AC.

Re: icharger

Usually you run into issues with voltage & frequency when dealing with 120/220VAC products from Europe.

AFAIK iCharger models are 12-30VDC input only. The models sold overseas should be identical to those in North America and you should have no problem using them here.

Now power supplies are a totally different story!

Re: icharger

Thanks for the replies. There were a couple of 3010B for $107 including shipping on ebay but the seller must have realized they priced it too low so they are no longer listed. Oh well.
