Yo!

I've got an 880 but decided to upgrade to a 880EX. After missing out on a new in box one on eBay because I hesitated to Buy It Now, which gutted me, I recently bought one from Japan. It should be here in a couplafew days.

From reading past posts on here, I understand that the VS power supply is auto switching for input voltage. To confirm this for myself, I consulted the service manual and, indeed, there was only 1 part number for the power supply board but 3 for the supplied kettle lead, one for each of the 117, 230 and 240 volt geographical areas. HOWEVER, Japan is of course on 100v and there wasn't a lead part number listed for that. This got me wondering, since they were made in Japan, perhaps the domestic market ones had a 100v supply?

So, is there anyone here who has imported from Japan and can confirm that they accept 230/240v? Maybe post a pic of the power supply board, if you have one? It's being sent with an adaptor anyway, but obvs I'd rather cut that out and run straight in if poss.

Thanks in advance.

It's arrived! Sticker on the bottom - 100v - 240v!!! Good thing as they didn't send an adaptor like they said they would.
