Will this work in Ireland to charge my iPhone? Do I really need it or just an adapter plug? Will the iphone charger take up to 240 volts?

Motorola phones say on the charger 110-240V, but I cannot read the silver print on the iPhone charger. I know I need an adaptor plug for Ireland, but I don't know if I need a voltage converter as well. If someone can read the charger for iPhone 3GS for me, that would be helpful.

    You don't need this. One of those "plug changers" will do the trick (not a voltage converter -- just a plug changer). The little "white block" for the iPhone takes up to 240v (even the US one -- check the fine print on the bottom by the plugs).

    I went to Scotland last summer and took both my iPhone block charger and my MacBook and charger -- plugged both into a short U.S. extension cord, put a plug adapter on the end of the extension cord and went about charging my gear every night. Both power supplies auto-ranged for voltage and it worked out great!

  • By using a magnifying glass and good light I was able to read "Input: 110-240V".
