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.

American lead, how do i convert


How to convert an American lead will depend on where you are. You can buy a universal adapter at most travel stores, but first of all consider the local supply voltage. US power is delivered at 110 volts. Australia, Europe and much of the world have a 220 to 240 volt supply. Connecting a 110 volt machine to a 220 volt supply will create smoke and potentially flames - I've seen a number of disasters. Some machines are made to operate across both supplies. Check the label on the back of the machine, near where the power cable plugs in. If it reads 110 - 220 volt you should be OK. Your local Brother dealer should be able to supply a local market power cable for you. They cost around $30 in Australia.

Solis 365 royal hair vac I was wondering if it was possible to use this product in australia due to the voltage difference and if there is a product made to suit australian voltage or if an adaptor...


There are products called Step Up transformers/Step Down (Voltage Converters) that can be used. We use these For our 220VAC Australian manufactured lasers when we need to run them in a Dr.'s office that only has US 110VAC.

Info from a website:
Electrical voltage in USA is 110 voltwhereas; the voltage in most of the foreign countries is 220V to 240 volt. A voltage converter / transformer, also known as power converter are usedto convert electricity coming out of the wall to match the voltage of yourdevice. These Voltage transformers or converters can be used safely withRefrigerators, Microwaves, Juicers, Blenders, Coffee makers, Power Tools,Stereo Systems, TV's, Video Games, DVDs, Hair dryers, Chargers, computersand other electronics when travelling abroad..

Remember to leave at least a 100-percent margin for power surges/spikewhen buying a transformer. Some items, such as Televisions, computermonitors spike when you turn them on. For these products you need to buy avoltage converter transformer that is at least 3 times the items capacity.Power tools, laser printers and heating appliances like coffee makers,toasters, microwaves, Halogen, Fluorescent bulbs you must leave a marginof 3-4 times.

Voltage transformers are made to convert single phase 110 or 220 volt.American 220 Volt consists of 2 phase of 110 Volt and European 220 Voltconsists of 1 phase of 220 volt.

Volts x Amps = Watts (i.e. 110V x 0.5 AMPS = 55W). Please make sure not torun any appliance with higher wattage then voltage transformer's wattage.This might damage both: your appliance and the transformer!

I hope this helps.

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.

I will be traveling to Japan with a xperia Arc S bought in south Africa. Will I be able to recharge my cell phone's battery?


Go to the travel accessory section of your favorite department store, and buy an international converter kit there. Many of them come with different adapters which are suited for different countries.
If you cannot find these in the SA, wait until you arrive in Tokyo. There, lots of them are sold
in 'Electric Town' in Akihabara or at the airport there are bunch of shops that you can find one from.

What is a travel converter?


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.

I'm going to Europe and wanted to know how to convert electricity so when I plug in my computer it won't fry the computer


This is a copy from the Radio Shack site. The quick answer is go to pretty much any electronic store or most travel stores and buy a Foreign Power Converter.

AC to AC Power Conversion (Foreign Voltage Converters) Purpose of Converter / Explanation of Operation AC-to-AC voltage converters, or travel converters, are designed to convert the voltage used in a foreign country to the voltage required for a particular AC device. These converters are either transformer-based or solid-state, and this affects what type of devices the converter can power. In addition to converting the power, you will often need to also use a plug adapter. Plug adapters are generally either built into the converter, or provided as separate parts. They are also sold separately, for use with multi-voltage devices that are designed to convert the power internally.
Selecting a Converter These are one of the more confusing of the power conversion devices. Because of the range of voltages, plug types and converter designs, many customers find that they need help determining exactly which converter they need. To aid in that process, we have put together a short worksheet to help you determine what type of converter is needed: We recommend that you print out thi sheet when taking a number of different devices to a different country.
First, you should determine the electrical requirements (voltage, frequency, and wattage) for the device(s) you will be taking with you. This information is generally on a label or embossed into the back or bottom of the device. Make a note of the voltage(s), frequency or frequencies, and the wattage indicated for each device.
  • The voltage may be given as either V, VAC or VDC. The standard voltage for US devices is 120 V. Devices that are designed to operate using different input voltages will be labeled, such as 110/120 V, or 120/240 V.
  • The frequency will be given in Hz. The standard frequency for US devices is 60 Hz. Devices that are designed to operate using different frequencies will be labeled, such as 50/60 Hz.
  • The wattage will be given in either watts (W) or volt-amps (VA). If the wattage is not listed on the device, you will need to contact the device's manufacturer for this information. If you have the maximum current consumption (in amps), you can calculate the wattage by multiplying the voltage (V) times the current consumption (A).
Next, you will need to know the electrical requirements for the country you are going to be visiting.
Next, you will need to compare your equipment requirements to the country's information to determine whether you need a Step-up or Step-down Voltage converter.
  • If your equipment accepts the voltage and frequency provided by the country you will be visiting, then only a Plug Adapter will be required.
  • If the voltage of the target country is higher than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Up Voltage Converter.
  • If the voltage of the target country is lower than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Down Voltage Converter.
Once you know what type of converter or adapter you need, consult our list of travel power conversion products to find one that meets your requirements.
Cautions
  • The AC outlet in many foreign bathrooms is for low-wattage devices only. To avoid damage to your converter and/or attached device, check with your host or hotel before powering a high-wattage device (such as a hair dryer) from this plug.
  • Do not use a voltage converter with electronic devices such as televisions, VCR's and computers unless the device indicates that it can handle both 50 Hz and 60 Hz.
  • Do not use heating appliances, such as hair dryers, irons and coffee-makers, on a transformer-based voltage converter.
  • Do not use non-heating electronic devices, such as calculators, electric razors and portable audio players, on solid-state voltage converter.
  • Do not use 110-120 VAC Surge protectors or Uninterruptible Power supplies on a 220-240 VAC system. Even with a step-down power converter, damage could occur as the two power systems are wired differently.

Uniden cordless phone


I live in China and just received a Uniden 6.0 DECT phone from my family in the States, and can tell you NO they don't work without a voltage converter. Why in the world Uniden wouldn't make their new products universal (110V-240V) is beyond me; amazingly there is a whole world outside of the US and most of it runs on 220V-240V.
