I have a D700 with the MH-18a quick charger. The User's manual says that you should not use the charger with any type of voltage converter. Does this mean that the charger will work in countries with 220v power as well as the US based 110V? Any tips on using the charger abroad will be helpful. Many Thanks.

Hi

The charger should (must, indeed) state its voltage range. For instance, I bought a P7100 in NYK and its charger (MH-24) specifies the input voltage range as 100-240 V. This particular charger did not come with a detachable cord, so I must use it with a mechanical plug adaptor, but this is not a voltage converter. The very fact that your manual advices against the voltage converter most likely means that one is not needed.

Yes, the charger works with both 110V and 220V, no voltage converter is needed. However, depending on the country you are visiting you will need an adapter plug to connect the charger to the outlet.

My MH-18A charger for my D700 has worked perfectly in Europe, the US and the middle East since I bought it in 2008. You should have no worries. All you need is a suitable power lead
