International Power Adapter?

Post by jhogue » Wed Jul 15, 2009 4:42 pm

Wondering if anyone has found a step up transformer that will plug into the Ooma box (rather than one that you plug the 120V power adapter that comes with the system into)? Does Ooma provide a dual voltage power adapter for international use?

I use the following 220v converter abroad and it works flawlessly. I also run a USA based Panasonic DECT phone through that.

Make sure your converter is for continuous use.

I have 3 family members in Australia and all have ooma hubs running via their DSL service. They all work great.

I was able to get a small black power adapter out of Hong Kong that was 110 v - 240v / 12vDC - 1 amp ( 1000 ma ) for AU$8.00 including shipping.

It works well. The plug on the end that goes into the hub is slioghtly longer but the right inner and outer diameter and polarity.

You can search http://www.ebay.com.au for these

Hope this is some help.

That's slightly underpowered. The spec for the hub is 12 vdc 1.2 A.

The scout is 5 vdc 2A.
