Different regions use different voltages, so a travel converter allows you to use your electric devices in a different region by adding a converter plug.

When traveling to countries with 220 voltage, is there any danger of overheating my ellipsis 8 android tablet, or should I use a voltage converter?

You can't use your current 110 V converter. Should go to a local accesory store selling converters for your tablet and buy a 220V converter with output SPECIFIED FOR YOUR TABLET - mean, voltage and amperage.
Even using a 220 V converter, you can fry your tablet by not using the PROPER converter.

Howw do you make a Samsung bd-F5700 blue ray player operate on a 240 volt power supply

You'll need to bring the voltage down to 110-120 volt. Travel converters do this cheap and effective. The player only uses 12 Watt according to the manual. You could use an old 3 prong extension cord to cut of the connector to connect to your power supply. Get the converter below and plug it into the adapter, who then will fit in the extension cord.

Is it possible to use a Franzus 1600 watt converter and plug which I purchased several years ago?

This converter is intended for devices that could care less about the waveform of the "110 volt AC" that they receive, such as items using the current to heat things: irons, hair dryers,...
I would recommend strongly AGAINST using it for "delicate" electronics that really want/expect a clean AC waveform to rectify.
Recommendation: DON'T use it.

How much does a travel converter cost?

A simple adapter, to only change the size or shape of the plug, is much cheaper than a voltage converter. The former could cost between less than a dollar, to about 7$, it it has a lot of shape and size options. The latter can cost between 10$ to more than 30$, according to quality, brand, size and amounts of options it provides.

Do i need a travel converter to use my American appliances in Europe?

Yes. You need a travel converte that will both physically adapt your plugs to the sockets, and convert the socket's voltage to one that is good for your appliances.

What is the difference between an adapter and a voltage converter?

An adapter is usually a travel converter that simply allows one kind, size or shape of plug to physically fit the socket.
A voltage converter is a gadget that stands in between the plug and the socket and converts the voltage released by the socket so that the plug and therefore the device itself don't get ruined by the wrong voltage.
These two kinds of converters can be combined and have different converting options, to allow its use in multiple regions.

If you want to have Internet access while you are travelling, then I suggest you get a laptop with a 3G USB wireless adapter (this uses the existing mobile phone network) with an Internet Service Provider that can give you the coverage in the areas you want to travel.
I suggest you get a printer that connects to the laptop using an USB cable.
I also suggest you get a power inverter to convert 12volts to mains voltage so you can use your laptop away from mains supply.
You can a 12volts power converter to the voltage requirements of your laptop instead of a power inverter.

Going to Hong Kong with portable Acer (aspire 5024) do I need a converter and an transformer in order to use it. If yes, please specify.

Here is the link where you can fnd several travel voltage converters.
i would get one of the kits that include all countries as the individual converters are almost as expensive and you might take a trip somewhere else in the future.
