Orbi RBK852 Power Adapter Voltage Label(Free Voltage?)

Orbi RBK852, Free Voltage?

I am, Korean.

 

Does the the Orbi Wifi Power Adapter (purchased in America),

read 100V-240V on the label?

Please advise! Thank you!

Hi,

I would suggest to strongly avoid buying an US/FCC version (Kit model RBK852-100NAS). While not checked the WiFi 6 Orbi, from experience we know that Netgear's FCC equipment can't be reconfigured for different wireless regulatory areas, the region selection does only allow U.S. (and probably Canada). You might want to look for a RBK852-100EUS or  RBK852-100PAS (don't know if the later does already exist) - these are typically "worldwide" systems allowing the regulatory/country selection.

Assuming Netgear does ship the same 12V/3.5A power supplies like NETGEAR AC/DC POWER ADAPTER 12V 3.5A FOR 100V-240V AC 50/60HZ (PA7000P) as with many other products ... probably yes. And their factories can (and do sometime) supply other power supplies. I don't know as I'm not Netgear and have no insight on thier product delivery chain.

Made for the USA probably, unlikley made in USA. Problem ... as it is illegal and can't be changed to Korean region I'm afraid. Your risk - not mine. Not interested in reading later that your mobile or IoT or whatever don't connect, or the KCC (대한민국 방송통신위원회) does ring on your door.

absolutly true. it is illegal to use wireless communication device that aren't complied to Korean regulation standard in Korea. please avoid buying RBK852 until they update the firmware to support other regions.

 

and the US retail set comes with power supplies that are rated for 110-120v use only.

Beside the size and build, most recent netgear orbi products shares the same power adapter specs.

I notice the new one is bigger and bulkier, though run way cooler than any other ac adapter I have.

 

if it uses the same plug for device end and have met the required power spec (12V, 3.5A output), it should work no matter what.

Is the RBS850, AC adapter 110-240V?

Do you have a picture of the AC adapter sticker?

Thank you.

Mine is clearly a US/Japan adapter as the input voltage is only 100-120 VAC.  I have attached a picture of the adapter and label.

Two photos,

first 110-240V,

second 100-120V.

Chaos.

What is the truth?

Mine looks identical to the second picture.
Both Adapters included in the package are the identical model and the sticker.
I bought mine at Best Buy in the US
I assume all US models comes with the same adapters in the box

Correct, I think that all Orbi nodes sold in the US should have same adapters as the one in the second picture (100-120V).
