Power conversion problem

Hello I just recently moved to germany from the US were obviously the power sources are different. The xbox has a different voltage so even plugging it into the outlet caused the circuit breaker to shut off. Does anyone know of any methods of making the xbox work properly on these german outlets? Thank you

You would need a Step Up voltage transformer.  There are various types depending on how many watts they can support.  For the 360 I would buy a transformer that can handle upto 300W.

Voltages are the same, the wattage is different, but this makes little difference, you still need a step up transformer.  Make sure you buy the correct one, if you're not sure ask.  If you don't the buy correct unit, you can blow your 360's PSU and the 360 with it.

Hey mate, do NOT use a power/voltage converter for the Xbox 360. Doing so can damage your power supply, and worse, your Xbox 360 console. In this case, you'll want to purchase a power supply built for that region to use with your console. Please note that you will experience issues trying to use games. an account, and console from a different region other than the one in which you are residing, though.
