I'm going to the carribean, what i'm wondering is if any plug that fits into say a radio etc. can plug into the box and will my vita charge fine from the mains there?

Also is there any other ways to charge a vita i.e. through a PC?

I don't know about your first question, but for your second you CAN charge via USB from a PC but it is slower and needs to be turned off if I recall correctly.

I'm not sure what you mean by the first question: I would certainly NOT just plug any random chargers into my vita to see if it works, if that's what you're talking about.

All you need is an adaptor to modify the Vita's cord's plug to fit the local wall outlet (provided the outlet provides 100-240 v, 50/60 Hz. You should be able to buy an inexpensive replacement cord for a dvd or other home electronics player that fits your vita, but has a local plug. Take your vita's power adaptor to make sure the new cord fits.

Good luck!

Best regards,

Piesia

This, all Sony products work worldwide. You just need a cable to go from the box to the wall that will fit the outlets there. Or you can buy a adapter to plug the US cord into that will go into the outlet, and those are pretty cheap:

Not saying you need THAT one but something like that will work.

OK thanks for letting me know guys.

What i was referring to is you know how the plug for the vita goes into a box. The box itself is a transformer I think. the attachment from plug to box is a standard connection in all countries (is looks like a figure eight of plastic. What i was wondering was if a plug from another country would fit into that socket as i know lots of plugs have that connection i.e. portable radios and laptops.
