    Hi guys -- just picked up a Touchpad from the latest firesale, and I recall that the standard Touchpad power adapter is similar to that of the Pre phones (except with different specifications for the presumably different battery in the Touchpad).

    Since I live in the UK though, I'll need our version of the plug adapter. But can I just use the twist-off plug adapter from an old Pre Plus charger and fit it onto the OEM-included Touchpad charger?

    Are the plug designs the same, or are the differences between the Touchpad and Pre chargers in the twist-off plugs themselves (and not in the cylindrical housing for the power adapter)?

    Thanks for your assistance!

    that should work. Did you try it?

    Not yet -- haven't received the Touchpad. But will try it out once it arrives!

    Does the UK version of the Pre Plus charger have the twist-off plug section? My US one certainly doesn't... perhaps that's something they introduced later on?

    You can also use a simple US to UK plug adapter... the charger will handle the voltage fine.

    I just exchanged a pre charger twist.off thing with a TP one and both are working (German version)

    I guess since the Pre originally launched in the US only, they just made the original chargers with US plugs... then added the twist-off feature for European sales and later for the TouchPad. I don't think the charger that came with my Pre3 had the twist off thing either (I've since sold the charger as I had others, but I think it was identical to my Pre+ charger); I guess they had plenty left for the US market.

    Yep, every charger from my original UK Pre- to my current UK Pre3 has had the twist-off plug for both UK and European adapters. So I still have quite a few spare twist-off plugs to destroy/try this with...

    Thanks! Sounds like it should be fine -- will give it a try once the Touchpad has been delivered!
