Quick 957 Questions

by bschwind on Wed Mar 15, 2017 5:48 am

I'm in Japan and have a few questions about the Quick 957:

It's rated at 120V, and Japan uses 110V. Will there be any significant adverse effects or will it just heat up a little slower?

What type of plug is it? Polarized with a ground prong? I'm trying to evaluate if this is something I can safely operate in Japan or if I'm better off searching Akihabara instead.

Safety is my top concern when buying a hot air station and I trust Adafruit a lot more than some random seller on Aliexpress so I'd really like to purchase the Quick 957 if possible.

Thanks!

Just as a follow up for anyone curious about this, I went ahead and ordered one and received it. Adafruit sent me a 110V/400W and so far it works well!
