    Hello everybody. Does anyone knows if the passport battery will be fine if being charged in 220 volts? Since now it was charged always at 110 volts. Thanks for reading!

    As far as I know most modern phone chargers have built-in auto voltage. You can charge your Passport on any wall outlet without worrying about damaging its battery.

    Modern phone chargers are adapted to most voltages around the world, including 220. Your phone doesn't receive 220... the charger adapts the voltage for you.

    Nop, I live in a country with 220v. 60Hz. and two Blackberrys (9780-Passport) worked flawlessly.

    The voltage of 220 or 110 is for the chargers input requirement. Most chargers are using Auto-volt, so it will be compatible with both. The output voltage going to the phone will be always at 5 volts. So your phone will be safe.

    Can charge it from a computer, only it will take a looooong time (500 mAh), but as in the case of overnight, once you wake up, it should be fully charged.

    As for some extremists, I DON'T recommend splicing a USB cable to give your device 120/220 volts direct, or you WILL see fire and won't have a device, period!

    If the thermal breaker is removed, it becomes a heat gun. Handy, but quite dangerous due to the melting point of the materials it uses when reaching 500'c or higher.
