    Probably a really daft question, but we have a couple of toys with USB chargers. Our computer is down stairs in the lounge which makes charging difficult with a very nosy 8 year old around! I know you can get mains adapters for USB chargers, but are they all the same voltage or do I need to get anything specific? Thanks!

    They're pretty much interchangeable.

    I think so considering they are charging off a computer which will be running on UK voltage (yeah that's my logic, daft as it may be lol). I use a mains adapter for an ipod and one that came with my Blackberry. One that came with a Samsung phone too, I believe. Never had any problems with them!

    Just like I use my Iroha charging cable to charge my phone lol. I think they are all interchangeable...if they aren't I'd like the heads up too before I blow my house up or something :p

    They're all the same, don't worry about it :P
    A few companies actually sell mains adapters for their stuff, but you probably have one knocking about from a phone or something :)

    USB 2.0 standard ports are 5V and 500 mA ( milliampere or also 0.5 A ). You can use any usb charger, you have just to look how much mA it can give. If 500 or more you are ok.

    A lot of phone charges are usb cables attached to a plug, if yours is like this you can just take out the phone cable and put your sex toy charge in its place. They all work at the same voltage its safe.

    All usb charges will give out the correct voltage (USB voltage is a standard) but they will give out different power levels. Most will be 500ma which is fine but slow, Apple chargers are 2A if I remember correctly.

    I have just swapped out the dual gang socket our bedroom for ones with USB sockets (Amazon and screwfix do them). Easy to do with the power off.

    All chargers have different A ratings these days, the higher the faster it will charge. The older the phone, the lower the charging current will likely be. Apart from that, they are interchangeable.
