It's not only Europe... its Australia as
Our company does the development in both Australia and
America... and demo boards are sent between. It would have been ideal for
us to have a power supply that did 100V-240V 50/60Hz.
Thanks for providing your feedback shown
The information written on the Gumstix product page for the 5V US power supply states:
"Power your Gumstix
system in the United States and Canada
Designed for 120V/60Hz AC
If this is the power supply to which you are referring,
how could that statement be improved to help prevent the situation described
Most customers purchase the EU or UK power
supply when they plan to demo or install their Gumstix products in Europe.
Would be interested to learn how often customers wish to use the same power
supply both in North America and in Europe.

Gumstix doesn't seem to have any other customer feedback
I guess I'll just post this here.
Gumstix needs to
be a little more explicit in the fact their North
power supply only works at 120 volts. If you plug
it into a 240
volt outlet with an adapter, it will blow up.
not-so-hypothetical case where your team in North America
preparing a demo for a customer in Europe, just to have
the board blow up
in front of the customer. All this because a
of the power supply costs a dollar more?
I bought a electric
toothbrush for $39 and it has a wide-ranging
(100-240 volt) power supply.
All other portable electronics have it.
Why should I have to carry
around a seperate power supply for
