    Adapter for XBOX 1?

    Hello,

    I have just gotten a xbox 1 from the US, and I will be using it in Hong Kong.
    Since it is from the US, will I need an Adapter for the xbox?
    If so, what type do I have to get and where?

    Thanks,
    Al

    Yes at the very least you will need a voltage adapter as the US is 110V and HK is 220V. Go to Golden Computer Center in Sham Shui Po. There is also a computer center in Wanchai.

    DO NOT buy a cheap converter! I ruined my original Xbox many years ago thanks to a cheaply purchased one!

    step down converter is required as HK voltage is at 240v

    if not, potential fire risk and a lot of smoke

    Hong Kong is 220V 50Hz.
