I did some searching on google, and it appears that mexico uses 126v outlets, I have also seen that they use 220v from another source. Both state they use a two flat prong plug, non polarized, non grounded. Does anyone know the REAL information? I am going to mexico in a few weeks and _need_ my battery charger to work down there. What kind of adapter will I need, or do I need an adapter of any kind at all? I'll keep looking around, but any help would be nice :)

Hahah sure, if I don't use them as a power adapter first. I'm sure they'd be able to absorb some volts :-P

we don't mind if they are a little crispy, just make sure it's cooked all the way through

what kind of adapter depends on what kind of power u need to push what is the v of ur charger and depends on the "non grounded "outlets ive been to mexico (from tx) and it depends on where u go and what kind of hotell you stay at also call the hotell and ask.most have 3 prong,but dosnt hurt to check.
