What can I use to charge my USB-charging Philips products?

Published on 01 July 2024
If your Philips personal care product comes with a USB charging cable, charge it by using the cable in conjunction with a Philips IPX4 wall adapter or another suitable charging method, such as those listed below.

Note: please read the safety information below carefully before charging your product. For full important safety information, please refer to the documents provided with your product.

Safety first

If you charge your Philips product in a moist environment (e.g. a bathroom), always use an IPX4 adapter to ensure safe charging. IPX4 indicates that the adapter is splash-proof.

Whichever adapter you choose, ensure that it meets the requirements below (this information will usually be printed on the adapter itself).

Input voltage: 100-240V.
Output voltage: 5V.
Power output: 1A or higher.
Water tightness: IPX4 for moist environments.
Approval mark: relevant approval/certification mark for your country (e.g. CE, UL, UKCA, INMETRO, IRAM, etc.)

Important: using a non-certified adapter may cause hazards or serious injuries. Always disconnect the product from the adapter before cleaning it with water.
