Another question concerning controllers that I had not thought about before now is where I am the supply is roughly 10v less than it is in the UK so will say a Gaugemaster one actually work here ?
I know for a fact UK hair clippers do not but laptop power packs do, also a UK model Toshiba TV works...
A question for the electricians in the group!! A quick read would suggest that the UK is converting to 230v anyway, so my quess is that the guagemaster transformer would be ok.
The issue however might be the Hz rating. Again - best to talk to an electrician or Gaugemaster themselves. Their technical specification sheet isn't very "technical" or "specific".
