    Does anybody know if the Kindle and iPad chargers are dual voltage? We're going to NY soon and I'm wondering whether they will be okay just with the standard adaptor or if they need a 110 specific charger plug.

    Cheers

    digicammad,

    The iPad chargers cover 110v - 250v.

    I bought my iPad in the USA with the US charger etc. When I got back home to the UK I checked the markings on the charger and it covers the 240v range as well.

    You should have no problems.

    Sorry don't know what charger the Kindle comes with.

    Nick

    Kindle charger is 100-240v AC and is basically a USB charger ( I also charge my phone with it and vice versa), how long you going for the Kindle lasts ages on one charge.

    Cheers folks. Going to charge the Kindles before we go, so they shouldn't actually need doing while we're away.

    You just need a plug adaptor & it'll be fine.
