Quick Question for our UK Members


Hey guys, can any of you UK members help with a tiny problem?
simply put, i know the AC electric is different, but is the DC the same as ours?
i mean, do you go to the store and buy a 9v DC square battery?
all the same everywhere, yes? D cells (1.5v) C cells, AA, AAA, etc.?

Thanks!

DM

Dangermouse.,

You could ask me due I live in France as well so answer to your question yes the batteries are the same in European area as you see in North Americian side.

It is pretty much standarized allready for many years.

Merci.
Marc

cool, thanks.... i thought as much, but if i ever send Cherrywood Castle overseas, (or to Canada) i want to be sure the bulb won't pop the first time someone sticks a "9v" battery to it!
so, a duracell is a duracell is a duracell? cool.

Thanks!
