    I have just booked a holiday to jamacia:bannana: :cool: for two weeks at christmas and the new year.

    I intend taking one of those small LED christmas trees to cheer me up while you freeze over here.:D

    My daft question is that the plug type transformer i have (like a phone type) is rated with an input of 230 volt and an output of 12volt.I know i will need an adpter plug , but do you think it will work on 110v or do i look out for a input 110 volt transformer.

    should be fine with using just a standard travel plug?

    failing that, buy an 115v adaptor (from ebay?) that fits into the 12v plug on the tree.....

    OR - dont plug it in! OR dont take it!
