Charging Rechargeable Toys Around The World

Eden ships pretty much Worldwide, with a few exceptions. Is there a thread that talks about the differences in electrical current, and what is required for successful charging in other countries.

I was hoping those from other countries would enter into this discussion and talk about the plug style differences and experience charging rechargeable toys, and what's required as well as other tips.

I don't have my Mimi charging cord with me right now, but I do know that the Uma can handle something between 100-240v. I would assume that the Mimi is the same way. This means that you should be able to charge it in a country that uses a higher voltage than the U.S. does without trouble.

You may, however, need to get a plug converter. You can pick up plug converters on Amazon for next to nothing. I just picked up a few U.S. to U.K. plug converters for about $3.00 a piece.

My cameras charge overseas without issue, you just have to look at the charger to see if it's voltage compatible.

Hello!!!

I've products from these companies:

Lelo
Zini
Fun Factory
Jopen
Leaf
We-Vibe
Je Joue
Fairy Wand (bought from Eden)

I live in China, where the electric thingie is 220-240v, all these items work here with no problems. All the cords state that they can be used from 110-240, so they are good universal. The only issue you might have is the plug itself you might need the plug converter.

The only two things on EF that I have actually seen that you might have to get a transformer for are the hitchi and the Eroscillator.

Hope this helps!!! I would really like to see EF put the volts on the product main page.

It depends on the battery used. Some have memory problems, causing a shortened life..

Determining battery type and charging method is difficult. Usually you have to ask the manufacturer regarding type. The best battery would be lithium. But, very few available. So, what does one do to get the most life out of your luxury toy's battery. If you don't know battery type, you are best to use a battery until it is depleted or out of charge. Then you will want to charge it completely. It is bad to leave a battery discharged, or partially charged for any long length of time. This is what can cause memory issues. A memory issue causes your toy to no longer charge, or it will only hold a short charge. The term memory is used due to the battery creating a new/fully charged marker which is false. It's a charge state which is usually unrecoverable. Good luck!

I've responded to this post already in a couple different ways. Now, when Focused more on it, I realize I left out some information which might be helpful.

So, regarding charging your rechargeable toy anywhere in the world. For this I'm going to use a cell phone as an example. Like the Apple Iphone, all cell phones for the most part are used world wide and designed alike, exactly alike, and thus are the same everywhere. It does not make sense to manufacture a phone for each country. A few years back, manufacturer's were supplying a separate charger for each specific region/country of the world based upon voltage and cycles. Back then, I can remember burning up my Nokia phone in Australia. This was because my charger was for the USA market which is 120 volts. However, the Australia market is 240 volt. Besides the voltage differences, each region or country uses different prong styles and configurations. So, what is different now. The manufacturers realized if they produced just one charger for the phone it would greatly reduce the cost and complexity. What they came up with was the "Smart" charger. It reads the voltage of the country/region and automatically supports what is required. The only difference is the prong configuration. So, now if your traveling abroad, you only need carry simple inexpensive prong attachments, and not be worried about voltage differences.

Sex toys are like cell phones. They are the same, and are sold all over the world. They have also employed or use the same "Smart" chargers as cell phones, shavers, etc. Just have the correct prongs, and your good to go.
