For international customers, will we get a power brick suitable to our country or will we have to use a power adaptor?
Also, what chipset does the hub use?

I strongly suspect MD doesn't know whether the powerbrick for this thing supports 220v input. I've asked the very same question at the beginning and no one bothered to respond. I think it's safe to assume that this is 110v only and go from there - i.e. decide if it's worth the headache of procuring a separate powersupply or a power adapter or just forgetting about it altogether. I'm sticking to last option.

Anzial, gumballguy
I have gone and taken a picture of the power adapter and the input allows for between 100-240V!

Thanks. But it's american prongs on the cable? Or does the cable detach so it can be replaced with an australian one?

Cable looks detachable.

Youre right. I was looking at the thumbnail, which is cropped.

just saying (not for this drop or anything) But you guys should buy a bulk bunch of plug / power socket adapters, for many of the different nations, then offer it as an extra on the purchase for international customers. That way you don't have to worry about different plugs. (Shipping directly from the manufacturer will be an issue though.)

Not that big of an issue IMO.

Pay for quality and get it right from the beginning - no adapters. The adapters that aren't dangerous are expensive and oversized. I took an electric shock from a chinese power pack (albeit it did have AU prongs) the other day. You gotta be a bit careful with adapters and cheap stuff, nobody wants an electric shock!
This has a detachable cable so it isn't an issue in this drop.
PS: I'm in the drop now :)

Another from AU who is now in the drop after confirmation that it supports 240V, and [looks like it] supports a standard 2-prong power cable. Got a heap of them lying around from old printers. :)
