I am trying to separate the two parts of the Samsung tab 2 7.0 AC adapter, since I am traveling to a country with different outlets.

I have tried pulling them but nothing seems to work.

Do you know how they can be separated?

  • They might be undividable. But that shouldn't be a problem to you: why not simply obtaining some travel adapter?

    To Close Voters: This does not meet the criteria for "Not Constructive". Further, it's about hardware specific to an Android device.

The Samsung Power Supply Unit (PSU) I have (same for: Tab2 7.0, Tab2 10.1, and S3 Mini) just requires a firm pressure, to remove the Australia/New Zealand angle-prong portion.

Push the power-prong element away from the bottom (with CE notice) of PSU. There is no release or catch, to stop this action.

(If this does not exactly match shape/appearance of your PSU, then disregard.)

The alternative approach is to instead obtain a Samsung 30-PIN to micro-USB adapter. This allows you to use ANY standard phone PSU or PC (USB to micro-USB cable) to re-charge the battery.
