    Basically, what it says in the topic description. I have a white NTSC-J Saturn now (in addition to my old black NTSC-U Saturn - I have no idea why I bought the NTSC-J one, but I did, so here we are). I know that Japan uses a 100V power source, while the US uses 110-120V. IIRC, people have said you can just plug in the NTSC-J Saturn into a US power source and you won't ever encounter any issues, but I'd rather not fry anything, so I want to double-check before I get ahead of myself.

    Although, I should be able to play the games that came with it in my NTSC-U Saturn in the meantime, I'm sure (it has an AR 4-in-1). Hurray, X-Men vs. Street Fighter...

    And yes, I'm aware this isn't even a vague question in PAL-land (you sure as hell have to use a transformer), but I haven't lived in PAL-land for over 12 years, so I'd rather stick to the NTSC-land question.

    (ED: "vauge" -> "vague")

    I am 90% sure you can use a standard US power supply.

    Wouldn't hurt to check with someone who's actually done it though.

    Those things take 100...120 so the 110 from US is not going to cause problems.

    If you open the system and look at the PSU, you can clearly see it marked as 100-120v. You'll be fine.
