I live in the United Kingdom but will be in the USA on vacation in September.  I would like to buy an Oculus GO whilst
I am there to take advantage of the much cheaper prices.  Will I be able to safely charge a US bought GO over here
in the UK?  Thank You for any advice.

    Just chuck the charger in the garbage and use any USB charger with a 2 amp rating or similar, I use a 4.3 amp charger multi socket one in Oz. 

    (Disclaimer) I have not bought a Go from USA but the charger is the only region specific item as a USB charger puts out 5 to 5.2 volts dc where ever is from as long as it is not a item specific fast charger which the Go one is not.

    I don't know what would happen with warranty though as you are not in the country of purchase?

    I bought mine from Amazon US and the charger is multi voltage, 100/240v 60/50Hz.  All I needed to add was a US/Au adapter.  It works fine for me downunder.  No international warranty though so keep that in mind.

    I doubt if you'll save that much mate, I'd buy in the UK then if something goes wrong at least you could take it back ;) are you a CMT?

    Saving is around £50, so I think I'll go for the 32gb one until the next generation models appear.
