I was looking at ordering one from Amazon UK and want to understand if there are any limitations outside of plug compatability.

I use one bought from the US and again apart from plug issues, it works fine. The adapter is world-wide voltage. So I would imagine the UK one just has a different adapter.

I bought mine from Amazon UK when I was living there. Works perfectly fine here in NZ now.

Thank you both. Much appreciated. Just put of curiosity did you use an adaptor for power or get NZ replacements?

I moved here with a lot of electronic equipment with UK plugs. I bought a number of power boards and just changed the plug on them to the AU/NZ plug. Then all my UK equipment just plugs into the power boards which works well for power bricks where you just can’t simply change the plug.

Because mine is a US one I just bent the pins to an angle :-)  Also since the adapter is standard 5V USB you can use pretty much any Android phone power adapter.
