    Dumb question. How do I get the CCR to work in Australia? Can I just buy an adapter that converts from AUS to US fitting? Will the voltage difference be an issue?
    Thanks.

    The power pack for the CCR and controller is capable at running from 85 Volts to 240 volts (of the top of my head). The only thing is that the plugs that come with these are US type, but being that the US is just 2 prongs that are straight and in Australia the power outlets have prongs at opposite angles. All i did was grab a shifting spanner and I carefully bent the prongs to suit the Australian outlets. Thats how mine have been running for the last 3 years
