    to use in Australia?

    Check the charger for her N7 -- if the voltage input rating shows a range 100V to 240V (or higher), the charger will work but you'll need an adapter between the wall socket and the charger. (Australia is mostly 220V)

    If, on the other hand, the input rating for the N7 charger does not list 240V (or higher), your friend will need to hit up an electronic supply store and buy a converter.

    Personally, I'd bag all that and just charge the unit overnight via the USB port from a laptop/desktop.

    That is a great username and avatar. Is that a TimTam? Those only recently arrived in the US, and man are they good.

    Just get her to go to jaycar in Australia its a electronics store that sells weird and electronics ... She just needs an Aussie wall plug to USB adapter and she is good to go... I'm pretty sure you can even buy them at Sydney and Melbourne airport in Australia .

    That's all she needs.

    pacosarae, I don't know why you're repeating the last line of my post, but the hidden embedded URL at the end of your post sure is suspicious. It comes out if someone replies to you with a quote. Everyone else, please be wary.

    Thanks and I'm not sure... just a picture I stumbled on a while back. Googled TimTam -- yeah, I'd be down for trying some!
