Introduction

The iPhone Wall Charger converts line power 100V-240V AC into a regulated 5V/1A DC supply. The 100V to 240V input voltage capability of the charger allows its use in different wall port supplies, making the charger adaptable.

  1. Use a hammer and a small chisel to carefully force the input panel open Clamping the device helps prop the input panel open but, do not pull the panel away from the device forcefully, as there are small wires connected to the device components. Be careful not to force the chisel into the device as you could damage internal components.
