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.
