HP Slate 7 2800

HP Recommended

I have a Slate 7 2800 and am going to Germany next year.  Will the Slate work with the local WIFI in Germany?  Will I be able to charge it with the correct adapter?

The wifi will work in Germany, just as it does for me here in the Netherlands. The wifi channel  issue mentioned by another  is not really an issue at all.  I have an HP product loan Slate 7 that is a US  version and it has had not difficulty connecting to hotspots wherever I have been. I have also used my US notebook in quite a few European countries with the original wireless hardware.

 

 You do not need a converter to use the power adapter, what you need is a power plug that matches German house power outlets.  I have a power plug adapter kit that I purchased at a Brookstone store at the Atlanta airport.  The second image shows exactly which type of plug will fit in power outlets in  Germany

It should work with the Wifi, also the charger will work provided you have the proper adapter/converter. German outlets produce 220-240volts versus the US standard 120volts so be sure you have the correct converter before plugging it in.

The one problem you may run into is the fact the Slate 7 2800 uses the US standard WiFi channels of 1 - 11.

 

Many places use 12 and 13 in Europe.

I believe you can manually set up the WIFI channel in the WIFI setting, if you dont know how to do it, please contact HP call center and they will guide you through.

Do I need an adapter that transforms the voltage to 120V?

It isn't necessary. If you take a look at the incredibly small printing on the label you will see it says 100-240 VAC. That encompasses the complete range of household power worldwide.
