TOL-00084 soldering station and 230Volt ?

Post by octal » Tue Mar 01, 2011 2:07 pm

Hello,
I just received today my soldering station TOL-00084 http://www.sparkfun.com/products/84
I'm living at France, and as you know, we have got 230V instead if US 110V.
The soldering station is clearly labeled 110V at it's back.

Can I use it on 230V ?

Of course not! It would be very dangerous.

Hello Leon, you are everywhere :mrgreen:

I know, I only wanted to be sure. I checked the internal transformer, it's clearly marked as 110V only !!!
I'll have to buy an adapter :)
