i love my slimp3 so much i had to take it with me to greece where i'll
be living for a few months.

trouble is, the ac adaptor only takes 110v, so i either need to find
someway to transform the voltage (harder) or find an alternative ac
adaptor that puts out the correct DC power. i've found some adaptors
in a local store that seem within range - there are two options neither
of which is exactly correct and i'm wondering which (if any) would be
recommended and what issues there might be if the replacement isn't an
exact match.

option1: 4.5v or 6v (configurable) with a max of 1400mA
option2: 3v or 6v (configurable) with a max of 2000mA

according to the standard slimp3 adaptor it wants 5v at 2A.

any clues appreciated...

cheers!

Which type of AC adapter do you have? There have been at least three.
Are you sure it won't take 220?

yah, unfortunately. it very clearly states that input is: 110v 50/60Hz
30VA

right now i'm really appreciating all the adaptors that *do* take 110
and 220. sure makes traveling a breeze :-)
