ah, begorrah sir an we'll be getting that elektrickery next year, shure enough...

Ireland is 220/240 Volts AC, 50/60Hz.  Any US / Europe voltage convertor will be fine.  Many devices auto-switch these days, and if they don't, they'll explode, so you'll know which ones they are (Irish logic )

Thank you Jonathan. I presently own a 10D, and had planned on purchasing a 1Ds after the first of the year (another purchase in 2003, and my tax accountant would have a heart attack!!!). It did not occur to me to actually look at the charger, as I knew it worked on 110V, so I assumed it would not actually work also on 220V.
Thanks again to all, and Happy New Year.

Hi all:
My wife and I will be travelling to Ireland for a vavcation in early spring. I will need to recharge my camera's batteries in local hotels, B&Bs, etc. I already purchased an AC electrical plug converter, but my question is, is the voltage 220V as opposed to 110V here in the states? I don't presently have a 220V/110V converter.
Thanks, we are really looking forward to our trip. My wife's heritage is Irish, and this will be her first trip.
Regards
Dave G. :laugh:

The battery chargers that are shipped with the 10D contain a built in converter for both 110 and 220, so all you need is the correct plug. I do not know about the 1DS, but I would hope that Canon would use the same logic for their customers of that model.

The label on the bottom of my 1Ds charger NC-E2 indicates it will work with 100-240V, 50-60Hz. So all you should need is a cord that fits the local outlets.

You should be able to buy a figure of eight power lead locally in Ireland for about 3.00USD. You may not even need a plug adapter.

Dave,
In the UK you can get these power leads in Woolworths. I cannot remember if Woolies operates in the Republic, but it should be present in the North.
