Power Outlets

The electrical voltage supplied in most of the world is 220 volts, versus 110 volts supplied in the U.S.

  • To protect your electrical devices from damage, purchase a voltage converter to run U.S. appliances in foreign countries. Most cell phones and computers can be used without a converter as they operate on both 110 V and 220 V.
  • Electrical wall outlets also differ from country to country. Purchase an adaptor plug system to use as you travel.
