Please Login to Remove!

Hello...
It may sound very "dumb", but, I am going to Brasil today and was wondering: I should be able just to use the right charging adapter and plug, done....right???
It won't "burn" the phone or anything?

Just make sure you have the international charger and adapter kit.

I have the regular cable ( charger ) and a piece that can attach to it, different than the one use in the USA, it is the plug with round prongs. Is that it?

Thanks

Depends on what part of the country you go to. In the south they had US style plugs and voltage. Up north it is different.

Interesting that a country would use two different voltages for household power: 110VAC and 220VAC.
If I had a prefference...220V it would be, hands down.

Cheers,
