Electronics advice

OK so for some crazy reason there isn't a hairdryer forum on this website?! So I thought I would post here as I know there are a lot of smart electronic wizards in these parts.

I bought a hairdryer in Spain. It's pretty cool. Cordless and sits in a cradle to recharge. Unfortunately I can't get it to recharge in NZ using a socket adapter. Presumably there is some kind of voltage issue? Is there a way to get around this? My wahine doesn't really want to chuck it as it's pretty cool.

What say you? Thanks.

Is the socket adapter connecting properly? All EU countries are supposed to use 230v ac

Yeah it's fits correctly. What voltage do we use here, 240? Could a difference between the 2 countries cause a problem?

No.
