I forgot...

So funny. I couldn't find an Asus Throne Qi in the states so I picked one up at Amazon UK. I forgot the power plug is not the same.:D

I'm sure there's an appropriate adapter. Suggestions? Thanks. This OK?

Probably fine. As I understand it things with a heating element or motor (hair dryer) may not be dual voltage but most electronics these days can handle it. Ideally you want the wall wart or power supply to say both 120/240v.

Alternatively, for devices with a DC barrel jack you could just use a NA adapter with the same specs.

You have a specific recommendation? Don’t want to mess anything up. *

Sorry for the delay. You're asking about alternative adapters? I don't know the specs for that.

For starters you need a compatible barrel which have an outer diameter (OD) and inner (ID) but there are only a limited number of standard sizes, measured in mm. Many "universal adapters" have multiple interchangeable barrels to fit different devices. Then the output DC voltage should be the same or very close (within 5% variance). The output amperage of the supply needs to be at least as much as your device requires but can be any amount larger as the device will only draw what it needs.
