    ProConnect S owners- Need help.

    I just checked it again, the model of the charger is NJK044B , 220-240 Volts. Strange that mine for the US would be different.

    I have to clear up that I am in the US , so its a much longer distance than to someone in the UK. I think the problem is that the boxes are too flimsy, and need to be double-boxed or put in a double thickness corrugated box. I ship all the time, and the boxes we use here are much sturdier. I...
