  • International Relocation: Electronics and Appliances

    international relocation electronics and appliancesIf you're relocating overseas, you're probably no stranger to the fact that it involves a lot of planning and preparation. Aside from dealing with passports, visas, banking and securing a home in a foreign country, you'll still have to furnish your new living space and prepare to make the transition into your new home. One of the most tiresome things about a foreign relocation is the initial adjustments and creating a space that genuinely feels like home. You can expect to spend a good amount of time and money shopping for necessities such as beds, appliances, electronics and more - all of which can be a bit overwhelming in an unfamiliar place. On the other hand, there are options to simplify this process and streamline your transition.
     
    What many people aren't familiar with is the fact that in different regions the world, a different standard is utilized when it comes to electricity. By now - if you're planning an international relocation - you might be familiar with the voltage issue; if not, read on.
     
    In the United States and North America, we use a 120-volt electrical standard. This means that the electricity in our homes & businesses is fed to us at 120 volts, and subsequently, all of the electronics sold in North America are designed to operate at 120 volts. In other regions such as Europe or Asia, the standard voltage is 220 volts and all electronics are manufactured to operate at that voltage. To keep the explanation as simple as possible, electronics can only operate at the voltage they were designed for. Any attempt to use an electronic device with a electrical voltage higher or lower than it was designed for will not only damage the device, but pose an immediate risk of electrical shock or fire. In other words, you cannot simply take your electronics with you and use them in any foreign country.
     
    In order to minimalize the stress and hassle of shopping for appliances and electronics in a foreign country where the prices may be higher and the selection is likely quite limited, it's possible (and much more convenient) to purchase these items in the US with a reputable relocation service that specializes in 220-volt electronics and appliances. When compared to foreign countries, the North American prices will be lower, the selection larger, and they can deliver your purchase directly to your new home overseas at a time that's convenient with your arrival. The end result is that you're able to consult with professionals in your native language, purchase everything you need from a single place, pay a single bill, and arrange for everything you've purchased to arrive at the same time.
     
    Again, not only will this step help you save a lot of time and stress, but if offers a certain level of relief to know that everything's already been taken care of. Furthermore, you're able to shop for the exact brands and models you like instead of being limited to a rather bland selection. You really can't beat that idea.
     
    The knowledge and experience of a respected relocation expert will also help to ensure that you have everything you needed to "plug & play" in your destination country. If any plug adapters ro special cables are needed to use your new appliances & electronics, they'll be the first to tell you - and in most cases they will provide those to you for free with any significant purchase.
     
    Okay, so you've got the idea. You're going to need new electronics and appliances, and you have two options - purchasing them overseas or purchasing them beforehand. Which option should you choose? Let's take a look... Do you speak the native language of your new country? Do you know the area you're moving to well? Are you familiar with the best places to shop for electronics and appliances? Are you okay with taking whatever is available for purchase instead of shopping a broad selection? Do you want to take the risk of being overcharged for inferior products? Are you prepared to be told that the more affordable models are not available and the inventory only consists of the top-dollar products, forcing you to spend more than you intended to? If you answered no to any of these, than your best bet is to make your purchases beforehand.
     
    So how do you do it? First and foremost you're going to need a reputable company who specializes in 220-volt electronics and appliances and have a proven record in assisting people with overseas relocation. They'll need to be experienced with their products, have a good selection, competitive pricing, and be experienced with global shipping (not to mention well versed in any issues or pitfalls or potential issues with shipping and/or customs that need to be considered for your specific destination). The customer service should also be exceptional if you're going to spend a large sum and entrust them to a timely and proper delivery of your products overseas.
     
    Where do you find a company like that? Luckily for you, we are a company like that. 220-electronics has over 35 years of experience in assisting people with their international location by providing appliances and electronics that are suitable for any destination in the world.

  • Voltage Converters for Korea

    voltage converters for koreaAre you thinking of relocating or traveling to Korea? If you answered yes, you've probably done quite a bit of research on the subject. You might be relocating for business, or maybe you're taking an extended vacation. Whatever your reasons, there's an important factor you may be overlooking - traveling with electronics.
     
    If you plan to stay for an extended period of time, chances are that you'll be traveling with some sort of electronic devices. From an electric razor or hair dryer to a laptop or digital camera, it's nearly impossible to leave home and travel with out bringing along items that require electricity. Herein lies the problem.
     
    In Korea, the standard electrical voltage is different from North America. It is delivered at 220 volts, meaning 220 volts is what comes out of a wall socket or outlet. In North America, electricity is delivered at 110 volts. This causes complications and unexpected inconveniences for travelers who bring electronics along and are not prepared for this change.
     
    When you purchase electronics, voltage is never a concern. This is because electronics are manufactured to operate at the voltage of the country or region on which they are sold. For example, electronics sold in North America are designed to run on a 110 volt electrical standard, while electronics sold in Korea are designed to run on a 220 volt standard. The devices are only intended to function with that specific voltage. In other words, you cannot just take your US purchased Blu-ray Player to Korea and plug it into an outlet to charge - the result could be anything from an immediately ruined player to an electrical fire.
     
    If this is all news to you, don't worry there's no need for alarm. Thankfully, there are solutions to using electronics overseas, with one of the most convenient being voltage converters. Using a voltage converter for Korea will let you to travel with any and all the electronics you need to be comfortable and productive on your trip.
     
    A voltage converter is a device that plugs into an electrical outlet and alters the voltage, allowing you power your electronics the same way you would at home. They are safe, relatively inexpensive and very easy to use. The converter itself plugs right into the wall like any other electronic. The required voltage converters for Korea are called a "step-down" converter. By design, it steps the voltage down from 220 volts to 110 volts. On the front of the converter there are outlets for your devices to plug into, which (thanks to the voltage converter) have an output of 110 volts - the same output required to use your electronics properly, safely and without the risk of damage. It's a very simple and convenient way to use your foreign electronics overseas.
     
    However, there is another factor to using voltage converters and it depends what you're traveling with - wattage. All electrical devices and equipment draw electricity, which is measured in watts. A cell phone charger, clock radio or an electric razor all use a rather low wattage of less than 100 watts. On the other hand, a hair dryer, curling iron or electric blanket draw a much higher wattage - some up to 1,200 watts. If you fail to purchase a converter with a sufficient wattage, you revisit the risk of fire, electrical shock or damage to your devices. To prevent that scenario, it's important to identify the number of watts you'll be using.
     
    Anything that's electric will have a tag on the cord or a label on itself that states the wattage. For example, a hair dryer purchased in North America may have a label reading 110V, 720 watts. The label is telling you that the product was manufactured to operate at 110 volts, and draws 720 watts. Since you'll be using a converter, the 110V mentioned is not important. The fact that is uses 720 watts is quite important however, because with anything less it will not operate.
     
    When purchasing a voltage converter for Korea, it's also very important to use the general rule that the wattage of your converter should be 2 to 3 times higher than whatever you'll be using. Certain electronics require a surge of power to start up, or might use a higher wattage if they're on a higher setting. Because of this, it's important that you have a higher voltage than recommended on the label to ensure there is absolutely zero chance of damage or failure of your electronics. Additionally, the extra voltage allows some flexibility should you need to use a secondary device at the same time.
     
    Ideally, you're going to want to check the electronics you plan to travel with and make a quick, short list of their wattage. If you're bringing a 1,100 watt hair dryer, a 80 watt electric razor, a 190 watt laptop and 650 watt curling iron, you have a total of 2,220 watts. If you planned to use them all in unison you'd need (at least) a 2,500 watt voltage converter - and although it's unlikely you'd use them all at the same time, 2,500 watts is just over double the number of watts used by the hair dryer alone. It's always better to be safe than sorry when determining the wattage of the converter you're going to purchase.
     
    Please keep in mind that while the voltage is different in other countries, often times so are the outlets themselves. There's a whole slough of different types of electrical sockets around the world. If your voltage converter doesn't come with foreign plug adapters than you'll need to purchase one of those as well, which can be picked up relatively cheap; usually less than $5.
     
    Now that you've learned about traveling to foreign countries with electronics all you need to do is figure out your wattage and buy a voltage converter for Korea. At 220-electronics, we sell a wide range of voltage converters for use in all foreign countries. We are specialists in international relocation and have over 30 years of experience.

  • LG Wireless Bluetooth Audio Systems

    lg wireless bluetooth stereo systemsLG has recently re-designed the home stereo by creating the LG Wireless Audio System. These units are really neat to have because they are small, relatively powerful, and affordable sound systems that use Bluetooth connectivity to play and control your favorite music directly from your mobile devices. They also connect to compatible LG TVs, allowing you to listen to your audio through the stereo system rather than your TVs built-in speakers. With up to 230-watts of power you'll get the sound boost you need to listen to music throughout your home, plus plenty of other features like the flexibility to change and control the music from your smartphone. These economical wireless audio systems are ideal for basic music playback in your home, office, apartment, shop or garage.


    With multi-Bluetooth, you can connect up to 3 mobile devices simultaneously for easy control of playlists between friends or at parties. The three phones can be connected and all three can be used to choose the music, which is really cool. You can take turns playing music, making for a fun and exciting listening experience.


    All of LGs Wireless Audio Systems also feature normal stereo options such as FM tuner, auxiliary input, CD Player and built-in equalizer. No matter what kind of media you have, you can use it. They also support the most popular and common audio formats, and come equipped with USB direct playback so you can share playlists from a USB drive or USB enabled device. They've even developed a LG Micro Hi-Fi Audio System which is a really interesting 130-watt system in a tiny package. What's better? The models we sell at 220 Electronics are designed for worldwide use - meaning they work with any voltage from 110 to 240 volts.

  • Everything You Need to Know About Multi-System TVs

    everything you need to know about multisystem tvsWhat is a Multi-System TV?
    What is a Multi-system TV? That's a good question! Multi-system TVs are units that have been professionally modified for global functionality. They're designed to work with any voltage (110 to 240 volts) and with any color system (Pal, NTSC, or Secam), giving you more flexibility than the standard models that are manufactured to work only in the regions in which they're sold. They also work with any type of cable or satellite TV service, because the internal Pal/NTSC/Secam conversion ensures that the TV is compatible with the signal being delivered from the service provider. There's no need for a voltage transformer or video converter - just plug and play, anywhere in the world. If you're traveling for trade shows, relocating overseas, or looking for a specific brand and model that you cannot find locally, a Multi-system TV is the perfect solution.
     
    What Brands and Models Are Available?
    Multi-system TVs are available in nearly any brand and model you can imagine. They're not sold in major department stores, but the retailers who modify and sell Multi-system TVs can modify any model out there and usually have a great selection. From smaller 32-inch models up to the monstrous 70-inch TVs, and from basic 1080p HD to a 4K Ultra-HD Smart TV with Wi-Fi, there's a broad range of options to choose from. You're sure to find something that suits your home theater needs.
     
    How Much Does a Multi-System TV Cost?
    Since a Multi-system TV has been modified by a third-party and features extra functionality, there is an additional cost over the traditional model of the same TV. However, the cost isn't excessive and it's actually well worth the investment if you need the extra flexibility. To give a decent comparison, you can buy the LG 65UH603U 65" Multi-system 4K Smart TV for $1,439. The regular model on LG's website is $1,299 so you're only paying about $140 more for full global functionality from a 65-inch Smart TV - not a bad deal at all. In fact, depending where you live, you might be able to buy the multisystem model from our online store and have it shipped to your door for the same price as buying the normal model at a local store.
     
    Do Multi-System TVs Feature a Warranty?
    Most manufacturers don't honor the factory warranty on a TV that has been modified by a third-party. However, any reliable and honest retailer of Multi-system TVs will have faith in their work and offer the same or similar warranty to that of the manufacturer. Usually this is limited to a 1-year warranty, the same offered by a manufacturer.
     
    Where Can I Shop for Multi-System TVs?
    Again, Multi-system TVs are not available in major department stores and electronics retailers. It's important to purchase a model that's specifically advertised as multi-system and to purchase from a reputable retailer. Many people see a certain model of TV available from a multi-system retailer online, and then purchase that same model in a local store only to be disappointed that what they bought doesn't feature multi-system capability. The only units that feature multi-system capabilities are the models that have been modified - after the factory - for this special functionality. To shop a huge selection of Multi-system TVs from the comfort of your home, take a trip over to our website. You can learn more about the different models and find something with the features you're looking for. We guarantee the lowest prices and we'll ship to nearly any country in the world.

    220 volt washers and dryers
    Depending where you're located in the world, it's not always easy to shop for home appliances.

  • Managing Electronics and Appliances When Moving Overseas

    electronics and appliances moving overseasIt's hard to believe that it's already 2018. It's also hard to believe how technology and international commerce has enabled people to live, work, and travel overseas like never before. Ask anyone nowadays and chances are good that they know someone who is working abroad, traveling abroad while working, relocated overseas, or expatriated to a new country. What was a rare occurrence 25 years ago is rather commonplace today, and it's changed the way we see and think about life and business. It's also changed our options, possibilities and opportunities.
     
    With so many living and working abroad, it's not such a difficult feat anymore. However, there are some things to be aware of and prepared for. One of those things is how to go about making your move while managing electronics and appliances. If you're relocating long-term or expatriating, chances are you'll be looking for a place to make yourself comfortable rather than renting a furnished apartment. Have you thought abut purchasing major appliances? Kitchen appliances? Electronics and personal devices? Maybe you plan on shipping all your possessions overseas or maybe you plan to buy new things upon your arrival. Are you aware of the pros and cons of each?
     
    Let's see if we can help you get a better understanding of the challenges associated with furnishing your new home overseas so you can live with the comforts of home, regardless of where in the world you're located.
     
    The Difference in Voltage
    The most important factor to consider is the difference in voltage around the world. In North America, for example, 120 volts is the standard electricity. That's the voltage we use for 99% of our business and residential infrastructure. Our electronics and appliances are manufactured and sold to be used at this specific voltage. In Asia, however, the standard voltage is 220 volts. All of their appliances and electronics are made to work at that voltage, and will not work in North America. Likewise, North American electronics and appliances will not work with Asia's 220 volt electricity. And it's not only Asia - many areas and regions use 110 or 120 volts, while many others use 220 or 240. It all depends on where you go.
     
    If you didn't already know this, it might be somewhat of a surprise as you may have assumed that electricity is electricity. Now that you know, you can learn a little more and decide what options suit you best.
     
    Using Your Electronics and Appliances Safely
    There is, of course, a solution to the incompatibility problem of foreign electronics. A voltage converter (also known as a voltage transformer) is a device that will allow you to safely change the voltage up or down, making it possible to change 220 volt electricity down to 120 volts so you can safely use your American electronics or appliances in Asia. Voltage converters are not very expensive, and they're available in a variety of sizes (watts) that can handle everything from a coffee maker to an electric clothes dryer. You can learn more about them by checking out this Voltage Converter Buying Guide to see if it looks like a good solution for you.
     
    Buying New Stuff When You Arrive
    One option that many opt for is to purchase new major appliances and electronics when they arrive to their destination country. This is a viable option, but there are many setbacks. First, the selection is going to be extremely limited for anyone who is accustomed to shopping in western appliance stores. You might not find what you need or what you want. The options available can also seem weak for what you're paying, and prices are higher because there is less demand and fewer units being sold. Furthermore, if you don't speak the language and don't know where to shop, you're going to get taken advantage of when making your purchases. You could literally spend weeks trying to find a washer/dryer, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave that suit your needs and your style. And you could pay as much as double for products made half as well (and half the size) that you're used to. This is not the best option.
     
    Buying Electronics and Appliances Before You Go
    One of the best, easiest, and most economical choices is to buy everything before you go. With a company like 220 Electronics (us) who specializes in international relocation, your worries about electronics and appliances can be eliminated. We stock a huge variety of home appliances, electronics, and personal devices that are specifically designed for 220 volt use. We carry the top brands, the most popular models, and we guarantee the lowest pricing - really!

  • Voltage Converters for the U.A.E.

    voltage converters for the UAEThe United Arab Emirates is an interesting and rapidly growing country. As an infrastructural powerhouse and a highly developed economy of real estate, finance and tourism, there are many people who are relocating to the UAE - and especially to Dubai - to pursue their careers. In fact, the majority of people in Dubai are expatriates from other countries and regions.
     
    If you're heading to the UAE from North America, it's important to know about the difference in voltage. In the US and Canada, the standard voltage is 120 volts. In the Emirates, the standard voltage is 220 volts. Let's take a look at what this means.
     
    Your Electronics Are Not Compatible
    With the exception of your laptop (which generally are designed with 110-240 power supplies), your personal electronics purchased in North America are not compatible with the 220 volt electricity in the UAE, and attempting to use them can cause damage to the devices, fire, and even electrical shock. This means that your hairdryer, electric razor, sound bar, Blu-ray player, TV, and espresso machine cannot be used because they were manufactured only for use with 120 volts in the country where they were purchased. The higher voltage can literally melt and burn your electronics and electrical appliances.
     
    There Is A Simple Solution
    Surely, there are some things you'll plan to buy new in the UAE, but it's not necessary to consider all your appliances and electronics to be useless over there. In fact, you can take them with you and use them very safely with the help of a voltage converter for the UAE.
     
    How Does It Work?
    A voltage converter transforms the voltage from 220 volts down to 120 volts, or vice-versa. You plug the device into the wall outlet, and the device itself has its own outlets where you then plug your electronics and appliances. The converter changes the voltage from the outlet down to 120 volts - the normal operating voltage for your devices - and allows you to easily and safely use whatever kind of appliance or electronic you'd like.
     
    How Much Does A Voltage Converter for the UAE Cost?
    Voltage converters for the UAE can vary widely when it comes to pricing. The reason for this is because they're available in different wattages, depending on your needs. While a 500-watt voltage converter may be sufficient for a TV and Blu-ray player, it won't be powerful enough to handle the electrical load of a 900-watt blender, or a 1,800-watt washer/dryer. The sizes vary from 500 to 10,000 watts and can accommodate an array of electronics and appliances in any home or office. For more information about voltage converters for the UAE, see our Voltage Converter Buying Guide. It will help you answer all your questions and allow you to find exactly what you need for your travel or relocation to the United Arab Emirates.

  • Region-Free LG UP870 and UP970 Ultra-HD Blu-ray Players

    lg up870 and up970 region free blu-ray playersLG is up against some fierce competition when it comes to Ultra-HD Blu-ray players, but there are two models that stand out for us - the UP870 and the UP970. These two models are somewhat basic, but in the world of 4k Blu-ray they're affordable, reliable, easy to use and they're less expensive than many of the competitor's models. With a simple but clean design, they fit in well with any home theater to power your 4K TV with Ultra-HD disc playback. Furthermore, the models we sell are region-free which gives them additional capability over the models sold by LG or in major department stores. They've been professionally modified for region free playback (plays blu-ray discs from all regions and DVDs from all regions), feature worldwide voltage (works with 110 - 240 volts without a voltage transformer), and are equipped with internal Pal/NTSC conversion (these players work with any TV from any country without expensive video converters). They're truly global players that can play any disc, on any TV, from anywhere in the world. This makes them an excellent choice for travelers or anyone who likes to purchase foreign film titles. Let's take a quick look at some of the features of these players.
     
    4K and 3D Disc Playback
    Enjoy your favorite movies and TV series on Ultra-HD in the finest resolution available. Rich colors, deep contrast and HDR support make for an amazingly realistic home theater experience. If you have a 3D TV, you'll be glad to know that the UP870 and UP970 both support 3D disc playback.
     
    1080p and 4k Upscaling
    If you have older DVDs that aren't Full HD, these players will upscale them to near HD quality. For non-4K Blu-ray discs, they will upscale to near 4K quality. This means that whatever you're playing will be shown in the highest resolution possible.
     
    Audio Support
    Both models support a wide range of audio formats for playback, as well as your home theater setup. This includes LPCM, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, Dolby Atmos, DTS, DTS-HD Master Audio, FLAC, AAC, WMA, MPEG 1/2 L2, MP3, and more.
     
    Video Support
    The UP870 and UP970 play practically any video format you can imagine. Support for all major/popular formats includes MPEG-1, MPEG2 PS/TS, MPEG4 AVC (H.264), SMPTE VC1 (VC-9), H.265, MKV, Xvid, AVC Rec, AVCGD, M4V, WMV, 3GP, MP4, MOV, FLV, VOB, TS, DAT, and more.
     
    Web and Streaming Content
    You have 2 options here, depending on your needs. The UP870 doesn't feature Wi-Fi or streaming media. If you already have a Smart TV, then this really isn't an issue because you already have access to streaming content. The UP970 has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and streaming media access (including 4k streaming), but is limited to Netflix and Youtube. Both players do feature a rear Ethernet port for a more stable connection.
     
    Inputs/Outputs
    Both models are equipped with a frontal USB port that allows you to plug in a storage device or smartphone/tablet for playing media. The UP870 has a single HDMI output, while the UP970 has dual HDMI outputs. Both players also have an optical audio output.
     
    If you're ready to get into 4K Blu-ray, both of these players are a fair choice. The Region-Free version of the UP870 and the Region-Free UP970 are not available in stores. If you're searching for global functionality and unlimited playback, plus the ability to use your player with any TV at any voltage, these LG machines will do it. Just don't forget to buy from a trusted retailer who specializes in Region-Free players.
