Portable DVD Player

I recently purchased a portable DVD player for my son from Play.com (Shinco SDP 5860) when I opened it the lead for plugging into the mains to watch or charge battery has a 2 pin adapter. I am not sure what voltage adapter I need to be able to use it in the UK, it appears the company is from Hong Kong.
Anyone any ideas? Thanks.

What AC voltage rating is on the adaptor?

it says Input 100-240v - 30w 50/60Hz
and output DC - 9V 2.2A

100 to 240V is not of much help. The adaptor should have been set to 220-240 volts input if its going to be used in the U.K. So far as I am aware HongKong
uses the UK voltage but they do make gadgets for export to the USA/Japan which use 115 volts 60 c/s.
Is there not some means of adjusting the input voltage to the adaptor. Perhaps a slider somewhere?

Unfortunatley there is no slider its just a box,

Well if Play.com are selling it from their Jersey C.I. base it must be okay for use in the U.K. If I
was unsure I would measure the output voltage before
plugging in the adaptor to the DVD. Would expect it to read higher than 9V D.C. because it will probably drop on load. However - if you don't have a small multimeter (and I think everyone should have) you could email Play and ask them.
