Voltage Converters and Foreign Plug Adapters for Overseas Travel

voltage converters and foreign plug adaptersIf you're heading abroad this summer - whether for a week or a month - you need to be sure you're prepared to take your electronics with you. Electrical voltage varies from continent to continent, and even from country to country. This means that your electronics may not be compatible with the higher (or lower) voltage in your destination country. In order to prevent damage to your devices or even electrical shock, it's important to plan ahead by purchasing a voltage converter to take with you.
 
If you're from North America and traveling to Europe for example, your electronics are designed for 120 volts only. Since Europe uses 220 volts, attempting to plug in your North American radio or electric razor without a converter will surely ruin your device because it's too much voltage for it to handle. Utilizing a voltage converter will ensure that the electricity going to your device is the same voltage that it was designed for, allowing you to use it safely and without worry. There's a wide variety of types, sizes and styles of voltage converters available, but for simple vacation travel we recommend a basic travel voltage converter. It's capable of handling low-watt electronics such as cell phone chargers, electric razors, radios, tablets and more. They're also relatively small, inexpensive and can be easily tucked away into your suitcase or backpack.
 
You'll also need to be sure you have some plug adapters to take along with you, since foreign countries have different styles of wall outlets than North America. There's actually up to 10 different types of plugs and wall outlets that are widely used around the world, and a voltage converter without a plug adapter is going to be pretty useless to you. Luckily, 220-Electronics has you covered. We carry an assortment of voltage converters and plug adapters for any place in the world, making it possible to use your electronics wherever you travel to.
