    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering if traveling to different countries with different electric voltages will break my touch if i try to charge it?

    i.e. In America, its 120V i think, so would my touch work in a country with a voltage of 220V for example?

    This is sorta unrealted but there's a new law that gives "people" the power to search your devices such as ipods, laptops and other mp3 players for pirated music, movies, etc. So you may want to watch it for that as well.


    The best bet is to try and charge it through a computer, laptop, 360, Ps3, Ps2, etc because I wouldn't risk it the power outlet.

    yea itd be more of a physical thing seeing as outlets in other countries are different, but adapters such as the one vanhalenfanrob showed convert the power supply to the correct one for the ipods

    well not necessarily through a direct power outlet, but it was through a laptop that's connected to the 220V power outlet?

    i think you will be fine, but you may want to check apple.com and see if they have any advice.

    I checked the site, but all I found was like you can buy a power adapter to connect to different outlets with different voltages, but it doenst specify if it could be used if i connect it to a laptop to transfer songs for example
