    I managed to ship the Core to a friend who will bring it to the Third World. As you may know we don't have 110v here, it's all 220v. The Razer Blade Stealth works fine since the Power Adapter handles all currents, all I had to do was change the cable. My family has brought some appliances like a Vacum cleaner, and a few cooking machines, and some of the work with transformers, other just by changing the cable.

    Most Desktop Power supplies have a switch to 220v. Does anyone know if the Core has this switch? If not, will I need a transformer?
     
  2. The Razer Core works with 220v without changing the power supply. You will however need to replace the american power cord. The socket for the power supply is a standard socket as seen on most desktops.

    There has to be a switch for 230V... Plugging it into 230V while on the 110V will fry it.

    Well, some laptop chargers have from 100v up to 240v, making it able to be plugged to any kind of voltage. The Core may have this system already wired in. I think that's what he was trying to say.

    I'm currently using the Razer Core with 230V.

  6. No switch the PSU is auto voltage sensing. I am in the UK and all I needed to do is plug a UK kettle lead into it. I saw this in the documentation before I bought it.
