Samson S Convert 220v AC adapter needed

Hello, I live in Israel and since the S-Convert isn't sold here (no demand) I got my
mother to buy it for me in the US. only problem is that the us version comes with
a 110v AC adapter and I need the 220v version - so I went to the samson dealer
who sells other samson "S" products which use the same adapter but they said
they don't stock the AC adapter separately from samson products.
I thought of using a generic 18v ac adapter, but I don't know how much current
the original adapter produce (and 18v models are pretty expensive here)
I've emailed samson us with no reply. Do you have any solutions for me ?

Thanks !

Re: Samson S Convert 220v AC adapter needed

If the 220v to 18v adaptor is not available seperately, another option would be a "travellers" adaptor, used for plugging in appliances from another country. You'll need the 220v to 110v adaptor, and then use the 18v adaptor supplied with your unit. Check your local electronics store or ask a travel acency where to find it in your country.

I thought of that, only problem is, the original adapter is somewhere in a trashcan by now ...

There's a Samson distributor in the UK. Maybe they can help.

I am sure you could just use a 18V adapter that is 220V. and that cant use much power at all. If the Samson UK distro does not have anything ask them amperage on the adapter and go out and get one that works.

I've contacted the UK dealer and they said they can't help me because the adapter they
sell is a three pin model different then the one sold in europe.
I'll try to contact a dealer somewhere in europe.
