A lot of readers were asking us for a couple of weeks now when we’ll publish our review of the XBox One we ordered from Microsoft in the US many months back. The package indeed arrived at our doorstep about 4 weeks ago.

We took our sweet time to do an unboxing session and by the time we plugged it in the wall socket, a plume of smoke started coming out of the adaptor.

That when we realized the XBox One (US version) only runs on 110V and not the auto-volt 110/220V we are always used to whenever we buy stuff from the US. Apparently, the US version is just 110V while the Europe version is 220V and the upcoming Asian version will be 110V/220V. Yeah, bummer.

So there, we have a brand new XBox One without a working adaptor. We’ve been scouting for a replacement for weeks now to no avail.

We’re contemplating on getting a 3rd-party adaptor (they say there’s probably one in Raon) or get a new one even if it’s 110V and just use a transformer.

Hence, the XBox One review will have to wait until then.

Majority of big appliances from the US are 110v (TV, console, kitchen stuff, amplifiers etc.) those that are smaller and usually brought around (cellphone charger, etc) have a chance to be auto volt.

For a techy, I was kinda surprised they didn’t check the adapter, coz usually that’s the first thing to check specially for big ticket items aside from the unit coming from the US.

Palibhasa walang article na makokopya na nagsabi na 110V lang yung US version, kaya ayan… crappy review as always… mangopya na nga lang kayo since dun naman kayo magaling,

Ayaw magpatalo, satsat ng satsat

Well imho baka sira na nga talaga ang adaptor kapag umusok or pumutok with char marks. kapag fuse kasi d ba auto trip lang, na walang usok or anything, it will not work lang.

Always check the adaptor next time if bought in the other country. Maagang ney year blast yan ha. Hehehehe

Oo nga dapat autovolt na lahat ng powersupply ng mga electronics ngayon. Di naman siguro ganun kamahal gawin yun diba?

Pero kahit na, dapat tiningnan nyo parin mabuti kung autovolt nga. Yung ps3 ko galing US autovolt na pero nag check muna ako sa net nung model. Pero yung PS2 at PS1 ko na galing states din hindi autovolt.

Plus make sure na yun transformer/avr na may 110 nyo e hindi 50W or 100W, at least 300W na kelangan nyang mga yan baka sumabog transformer nyo pag kinabit nyo XBox one jan

Susmio, dapat compulsory na ang auto-volt feature sa mga adapters ngayon!

Kahit nga mga mumurahing Netbook meron nito

Baka kaya pang gawin to sir.

Fuse lang ata papalitan dyan.

Ganyan kasi yung Xbox 360 ko dati nasaksak sa 220.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! ^_^

“Fuse lang papalitan (para mapagana ang 110Vac device sa 220Vac).”

Wow, holy cow. Please, please, kalimutan mo na lang itong misconception na ito. Kahit entry-level electrician eh hindi magbibigay ng ganitong payo.

For your own good.

Mr. Quick brown Fox

Ibig sabihin niya sir. mapagana ulit ang nasirang adapter. Intindihin mo kasi muna bago magokray

OK, mukhang humina reading comprehension ko nung time na yun. Soweh.

Anyway, kung mabilis na putok-usok lang nangyari eh may tsansang fuse replacement lang, pero kung prolonged eh malamang sira na rin ang ilang components sa loob. Kahit anung scenario eh hindi na rin talaga safe yung included adapter; baka mas safe pang bumili sa cdr-king kesa ipa-repair.

*facepalm* -_-

I guess, then, that YugaTech is too much of a consumer electronics website, much to the point that the admins/writers don’t even bother to read specifications before trying out the products.

Too much plug and play right there.
