ok the title of the thread is overdramatic but..
The standard PSP pack don't come with a 3 pin plug adaptor. I have checked on Success HK's website and there is no reference to a 3 pin adaptor (some other sites do mention this). so what options do i have?

can i use the powerlead from my PS2 for the power transformer?
Has someone used Success, did they send a 3 pin plug with the order?
will my shaver 2->3 pin plug adaptor work?
should i order one, and if so any ideas where i can get one from?

your adaptor should work, but I wouldnt reccomend it. If I was you I would order a stepdown from GBAX or Lik-sang just to be on the safe side

Yes powerlead from ps2 or stereo would do as long as it has the figure 8type connection on the end. I'm using my MP3 player powerlead on mine and all is ok.

You don't need a stepdown as the JAP power supply is 110/230 voltage.

BTW - you can get a 2 to 3 pin adapter from maplin for 3.

No stepdown needed. Just use the power converter that comes with the bundle. Sony obviously planed for a globle market with these systems

Apparently, The US power supply is exactly the same. 110v-220/240v switching. Looks like Sony are maybe saving money by making one power supply for the whole world.

Got my PSP today. Love it, as for the power. I'm currently using my PS2 power lead to charge it!

Success HK, EMS delivery sent on thursday got it today. Got NFL Street from nuplayer as well. Waiting on Tony Hawks coming from Lik Sang. Doesn't appear to be an import duty as of yet.

Got some video on it as well, looks ok, would prefer to get it widescreen but have no idea how to.

Woo Hoo again!
