If your Freeplay product didn't come with an AC adapter but can be charged from the wall, the Freeplaymini-USB charger (AC adapter) is the one to use. Fits wall outlets of type A (USA, Canada, Japan and elsewhere), type C (Europe and elsewhere), and type G (UK and elsewhere); for other outlets a plug adapter should be inexpensive and easy to find.

If your Freeplay product included an AC adapter, it wasNOT a mini-USB type and this adapter cannot replace it; please contact us for information.

Freeplay AC Adaptor Product Features

  • Includes plugs for most outlets around the world, and accepts all standard AC power (100-240 V, 50/60 Hz), so you can travel with it
  • Charges any product that is re-chargeable through a standard mini-USB socket, including products from other manufacturers

About the Freeplay AC Adapter

Many newer Freeplay products use the mini-USB charging standard, allowing you to buy just one AC adapter to charge many devices. By avoiding including an AC adapter (wall charger) with every product, we keep prices down, and we lessen our impact on the environment. There are already 1.5 billion AC adapters in use in the USA – that’s 5 per person – and that’s just in the USA. This standardized approach will greatly reduce the problem.

Products that use this charging standard also have the advantage that they can be charged from a computer's USB port, using an inexpensive cable (USB-A to mini-B, 5-pin not 4-pin).

You may already have a mini-USB AC adapter. If you don’t, this one will power not only Freeplay products but other devices as well, such as many mobile phones and digital cameras.

Benefits of the Freeplay AC Adaptor

  • Charge from the wall for extended shine times and play times of your Freeplay products.
  • One charger for many products, not just those from Freeplay – less clutter, less confusion.
  • Universal power supply with USA, UK and European pins supplied lets you carry one charger and use it anywhere.
  • You may already own an appropriate charger, and only buying the charger if you need it means less waste and less cost – both financially and to the environment.

Power from any outlet

This charger accepts all standard AC power (100-240 V, 50/60 Hz), so you can travel with it. Three plugs are included that will fit most wall outlets around the world:

  • Type A can be used in USA, Canada, Mexico, many other countries throughout the Americas, Japan, and most Saudi Arabian outlets.
  • Type C (Europlug) can be used anywhere in Europe (other than the UK, Ireland, Cyprus, and Malta), most of the Middle East, most of Africa, Argentina (older buildings), Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, Israel, Peru, Uruguay, the former Soviet republics, and many other countries.
  • Type G can be used in the UK and Ireland, Bahrain, Belize, Botswana, Brunei, Cyprus, Dominica, Ghana, Gibraltar, Grenada, Hong Kong, Iraq, Kenya, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia (some outlets; for the rest use the Type A plug), Singapore, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Uganda, UAE, Yemen, and Zimbabwe.

In other countries (such as Afghanistan, Argentina, Australia, China, India, Namibia, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Paraguay, Somalia, South Africa, and Sri Lanka), a plug adapter should be inexpensive and easy to find.

This AC adapter can be used with any product that has a standard mini-USB charging socket, including products from other manufacturers such as many mobile phones and digital cameras.

What's included

The package includes the main part of the adapter and three plugs for different types of wall outlet (see above). If your wall outlet is of a different type, an adapter should be inexpensive and easy to find.

To attach a plug to the adapter, hold the adapter so that the cord is hanging from the bottom. With your other hand, insert the top end of the plug (it is marked TOP) into the top end of the depressed area of the adapter, and it will hook on. Then press the plug onto the adapter and it will snap on.

To remove the plug, find the semi-circular OPEN button that is below the plug, and slide it away from the plug. The plug will pop off.
