    where could you get one in mumba ?
    approx cost ?

    Any input on this is appreciated !
    Yes you will need 240v to 120v power convertor.
    A good quality power convertor should be reliable enough and can cost around 500-600 Indian rupees.
    They should be available in Heera Panna in Mumbai.

    You can also buy it in US ( which i would recommend )

    One of my friend has an American Wii since past 8-9 months and is using the power convertor without any issues.

    hey, there are 2 options

    get the universal adaptor (fairly expensive) say 30$ or so here in india

    or go to a hardware store ask for a stepdown transformer (5$), usually red in color, looks like an adaptor with a 2 pin input (make sure it steps down 240V to 120V),

    downside to 2nd option is that it gets really really hot, like burn your finger when u touch it hot .... also if u put up a usb hard disk, the wii shuts down every 20 minutes or so...
