The one I posted lets you choose the correct amperage (go higher than needed) and they even ship to BFE.

Or, maybe you can post a photo of the transformer inside where you connect the 220vac up. Chances are very good that you can simply rewire the transformer for 110vac and get on without spending another dime.

If that doesn't work then you could probably just replace the transformer inside the unit with one that has primary connections for 110 and 220v, and even wire up a switch to it (eghads!).
sorry, kinda jaded on the chicom power supplies after waiting a month for it to get here and it did that. My mailing addres is not an APO, its a US embassy adress that send out mail via embassy courier...IE fucking slow
Yes, it was a test run using a 12v LED indicator light. Light went on, then the capacitor blew and caught fire.

My brevity didn't look into if it's 240 2pole breaker like USA or if it's 240 single pole breaker. Any chance that could be your issue and if your equipment isn't enjoying 50hz as well.
only certain things dont like 50hz. Tomorow I am going to Kampala and looking for a "REAL" computer place and get a "REAL" power supply....with a fucking switch that says 110/220

we will see how that pans out

The fucking fridge is PIMP with its new digital control, shit even added a USB port for charging. Pics later.

That or find someplace that will sell you one for a server (perhaps from a server that was replaced?)...

Jesus Christ you girls can bicker.

Doc, if you don't find what you need, let me know. I have a converted psu I will send you. It's only rated at 14a @12v, but I know it works since I use it for powering my rc car chargers through the banana plug outputs on both 12v and 5v and it does have an external 115/220 switch.
