 So I've moved 3 months ago from UK to Trinidad and Tobago.

 Of course I thought about bringing my XBOX360 over here thinking that a simple plug converter would do the trick. But apparently there's not enough power from these outlets to even turn on my XBOX. So I googled and came across different answers, that's why I turn here and hope to get a proper answer.

 

 Will a simple american power cord/adaptor ( the cord and brick running form XBOX to outlet) be enough to make my XBOX work or do I have to completely replace the whole console ?

 

 Thanks in advance!

Hello,

 

:welcome: to Bleeping Computer!

 

I'm not entirely sure as to what outlets they use there. Do they use North American ones? If so this looks like it may help you.

Electrical sockets (outlets) in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago usually supply electricity at between 110 and 120 volts AC

 

 I guess it's the same as North America ?

 

 It's a XBOX 360 500GB, I think latest versions of 360. It has a different connecting plug into the console than previous versions.

 

 Like this one https://www.amazon.com/Original-Microsoft-Power-Supply-Adapter/dp/B00TEB76P8. You think that alone will work ?

NA outlets look like this

 

Where did you buy your 360? What model do you have? Let's see if we can find out what kind you need. :)

 I bought an US adaptor and worked just fine with my EU xbox. Problem solved.
