So I have a amazon echo show first gen (i upgraded to 2nd gen) for Sale however has a US power adapter.

 

Hence I have drastically reduced the price to $160 plus what ever the delivery to you is usually $6 to $12 

 

Complete with original box.

Remember, it's an Amazon echo show as indicated in the text, not a amazon echo, as indicated in the title.

Sorry guys I was so focused on making sure i said it was a gen 1 i forgot to say show and I dont think I can edit the title?

 

anyho its a excellent condition amazon echo SHOW GEN 1 

 

I appreciate that we are not TM but it is likely even more strict here.

 

I will make sure that everything that came in the box from amazon is included instructions plastic protector etc

I've edited your post - supply the power adapter. Many people (including myself) have on here. It is totally fine.

 

Trademe don't because they need to ensure quality control with imports from the likes of China. As this is an Amazon unit with a quality power supply it is totally fine to supply this on here. It isn't law...

It is the law actually. All electrical goods sold that are under 10 amps need to have an as/nzs3112 compliant plug fitted to them.

 

There are exceptions but basically if you sell something that isnt ready to plug straight in (and a travel adapter doesnt count) you are technically breaking the law. Even on person to person sales.

 

Its another case of the law being way overstepping where it should be but thats what happens...

@richms Thanks for clarifying - yes, I'm no lawyer, I honestly thought it was "policy" from Trademe.

 

Regardless, it is still totally fine to sell on here under the condition the buyer understands it has a US plug as the buyer can choose to use it or not. There has been plenty of Amazon Echo's + Google Homes sold on here with them. I would trust the US plug on the Echo (which is very good and multi voltage) over a replacement somebody is likely to import from China.

 

Anyway, back on topic.
