Hi,

I wanted to how to avoid this battery damage. This is my second experience with this issue. One was with my first laptop Toshiba bought in US, which when using in EU and charging it with the same charger + adapter, the battery life decreased significantly. The battery would only last 20-30min or so. Where as before it was about 1h to 2hrs. The second one is with my current Macbook also bought in US and now using in EU. Same thing. I just changed the removable adapter on the charger and again full charge only gives me about 1h or so where before it would be 2-3hrs. Any ideas how to resolve this problem?

Regards
Tony

What country specifically are you in? Are you using an EU charger or a US charger with an adapter?

Hey there, Unless that socket adaptor has a voltage transformer in it you have been plugging you 110v charger into a 230v socket. Check on the charger box as to whether it can handle 230v because other wise you will probably break it.
