    General Modifying a charger

    Hi friends

    I have a Pantech burst charger lying with me. Can I use it in India? It says, 100-240V, 50-60hz, output 5.0v----1A. But it has 2 pins with a hole in as in USA. Link attached. Can it be modified to be able to use in India?

    If I directly put it in plug using 2 wires attached to both ends, will it not work or converter is necessary as it is 100-240htz

    Yes, it might, but still its risky to do so. There is a high probability of short circuit.
    For occasional use/testing its fine, but not advisable for regular use.
