    Some folks like Silver Surfer Vaporizer make 220V specific models too. (I think). :)

    Yeah was lookin at them but i have a whip style vape (granted it is a china generic) and my wife doesn't like the hassle of the whip, nor niether do i much!
    So i was thinking of your Purple Days, as i think it would be less of a hassle to pack and pull, but you dont post overseas anymore. Even if ya did? would your vape work in Oz??

    you can use your own 220V/12V 1000mA wallwart for the PD totally universal this thing
    but you probably will have to build your own PDP

    It's a 12V system, so 110 or 220 isn't the issue. You just need the appropriate wall adapter.
