Bose Solo5 region compatibility between USA and Japan

I'm living in Japan for the next year or two.  I want to purchase the Solo 5.  is the Solo 5 sold in the Japan region compatible for 100-120V, or just for 100V? I would like to know if I can use it when i return back to the USA.

 

Thanks

Hi dt4000,

 

The Solo 5 is delivered with an external power supply because it works on DC power.

 

If Bose is supplying a universal 100-240 V power supply you shouldn't have any problems at all.

Worst case is that you have to buy a new US AC adapter when returning to the US.

 

Cheers,

Central

Hi dt400!

 

Great question. The Bose Solo 5 comes with a universal power brick as CentralBK had mentioned which is a dual-voltage power brick. The input rating on the power brick is 100-240v, 50-60 Hz, so it should be perfectly fine moving from Japan to the US.

 

Thanks!
