    bringing mobility scooter from UK

    Hi I am bringing my own mobility scooter with me when I come. What I am wondering is will my charger work with just UK to US plug adapter?

    It depends if your charger is dual/universal voltage.

    The US power sockets are 110v while ours are 240v. Without a dual voltage charger, charging MAY still work but it'll be very slow unless you have a transformer.

    Look at the back of your charger and it should say, either on a sticker or embossed into the casing.

    If it just says 240v then it's not looking good.

    If it says 110/240v or 110-240v then you're fine.

    Would you recommend buying a charger that says 110 - 240 on, I can get them on ebay relatively cheap?

    If yours doesn't, I would. Just make sure you get the right charger for your scooter!
