thanks for the kind replies guys, however i was reading around the FAQ section and found this:
Q: I am traveling overseas. How should I power my Line 6 device? A: You can buy any adapter that converts your country's power to these specs and it will work. Any electronics store in your country should be able to sell you one, or you can contact your local Line 6 dealer. Be aware that the DC-1g and DC-3g power supplies are â€œuniversalâ€ across all voltage and power standards around the world, and you will only need the appropriate adapter for a new region rather than a different power supply or transformer.
mine is DC-3g, and I tried powering on my POD XT and it turned on and works fine but I didnt leave it on for a long time (1-3 mins just for functional check) and came back to this forum. I wonder if this is a good sign?
