    Hello,

    I'm trying to work out if I can buy a second hand Razer Blade Pro 2017 from the US and use my existing power adapter that I got when I bought my Razer Blade Pro 2017 in Australia.

    Does anyone know if the power adapters for a Razer Blade Pro 2017 bought in Australia will work (as well) when plugged into a Razer Blade Pro 2017 from the United States?

    Aka are the power adapters universal?

    Thanks

    P.S. When I go on the Australian version of the official website, it shows 165 Watt power adapter. And when I go on the US version of the website, it shows the same 164 Watt power adapter.

    So this to me suggests I should have no problem just swapping power adapters which is nice. But I would still appreciate some confirmation if possible.

    usually power adapter are designed to work from 100-240v power, which is pretty much worldwide. Moreover, older power adapters (honestly, don't know about modern ones) are two parts- the adapter brick with a cable that goes into the laptop and a chord that goes from the wall socket into the brick. If that power adapter is also a two-part, you won't even need a different one, just replace the part that goes into the wall socket. Or the simpler solution would be a socket adapter-personally using it for the US adapter in EU

    Thanks Doc Axton.

    My concern was more toward if the power supplies within the laptops from different regions change or if the laptop internals remain the same.

    You're right, I could just get a US to AU wall adapter, but I don't like them (for full time usage). I would be willing to pay extra to just replace the Razer adapter for the correct region.

    That's an interesting point you make about it being two pieces. I'm not much of a handyman but I guess that could be another option.

    If you have P/N of this device or you can get it this help you alot. Just google it and you see what is default psu for this laptop then go to razer store and buy power what you need. For cable that go into psu<->outlet you can cheack any market place website or any web store that sell it it's normal 3pin male and you should have psu for your outlet without any adatper.

    Ok thanks for the help.

    The US version of the Razer store will not ship the US parts to Australia. That is the issue I was trying to work around also.

    You have few ways like i write you have few ways to handle this you can buy from web stores, ebay etc. or if you really want and cost is not a issue you can buy shipment from companies that handle the shipment for you so you buy a serive from them they give you a deposit adress you buy from razer us your product and set the deposit adress they give you razer send box there company that you buy servie ship to you. Like i write above it's more expensive way but you can do it if you really want.
