Power: adapter or convertor?

Hi all,

I recently moved to Hong Kong and i have taken my PS4 Pro with me. However, I am sceptical about plugging it in (with an adapter) in case it causes a problem, breaks, smokes or whatever.

As far as I'm aware Hong kong is similar to the UK and has 240 V and 50hz. The 'power' in the PS4 Pro guide is stipulated between '100-240 V AC, 50/60HZ', so to my understanding an adapter should be fine...

I am just wondering if anyone else has any information on using an American PS4 Pro in Hong Kong? If a simple 'travel' adapter would suffice to play the console, or if i have to go the whole hog and purchase voltage convertor of Amzaon or something.

I thank you for your time and replies.

I don't know about adapters/converters, etc., but you might see if a local repair/electronics shop has the equivalent power cable to the one the PS4 came with. Considering you moved there, it might be worth it/cheap.

Here's another discussion on this topic, in case you haven't seen it: Is the power supply dual voltage?.

@ste1986milan just like all prior models the PS4 Pro uses a 100/240V power supply. You will not need anything to convert any power. All you need is a wire that fits your Hong Kong power outlet.

Be absolutely free of any worrying about the power supply issues as long as it's original PS4 it works in Hong Kong as well. I listened to an Electrician moving from US to EU he made me bought 60$ converter later I contacted Sony tech. He said it supports 100-240V AC I was really a fool to listen to that EU tech.

So, in essence this is a simple fix? I've read that the console 'does all the work' so to speak, and so long as i plug it in to the wall with the correct plug (three prong UK style) the console will do all the work.
