Hi Begus,

You will have to do a little research on your own to decide what is right for you. You may be able to get by with a simple adapter, or you may wish to purchase a camcorder designed for use in Europe. Many better hotels have begun offering rooms that have both European outlets and American outlets, so a lot depends on where you go. Because of the difference in voltage, you may require a transformer and/or converter to make the device functional. Also, be aware that because of the difference in frequency, some devices may run slowly in Europe if designed to work with American electricity standards.

So, the things to look for are your specific product ratings of voltage, frequency (measured in Hertz), and what type of plug is on the end of the cord. Then contact the place you will be staying to see if there is a way to match the camcorder.

Thank you,
Jason,

Will a Packard bell i media desktop run on united states power ?or is it strictly designed to run on European power ?


Here in the US, and with more than 20 years experience as a computer tech I would venture to answer that almost any computer should work almost anywhere in the world.
You only need to look at the input voltage and make certain the power supply is set to match the line voltage supplied where you are. Standard electricity in Europe is 115v or 220v @ 50hz and in the US it is 115v (almost universally) or 220v (rarely) @ 60hz. The biggest difference is the ac frequency used but for computer power supplies that is immaterial.
A computer power supply converts the ac input power to regulated and filtered 3.3v, 5v, and 12v dc so the ac frequency does not have any affect on the filtered dc output that actually operates the computer. Almost all power supplies have a voltage selector switch near the power cord plug on the back of the computer to choose 115v or 220v. Newer power supplies are designed to be auto selecting on input voltage so even that manual selection is no longer required.

You likely will need a different power cord since the shape of the prongs on power outlets in Europe is always different than here in the US. If I remember correctly from my time in Europe that even varies by country there.

As long as you keep in mind the possible different voltages and the different prong shape and arrangements for the ac power source your packard bell computer should work well here in the US.

Absolute worst case scenario would be that if the power supply already installed in your PC is extremely low quality and was designed to use only one input voltage then it is possible you may need to replace the power supply with one that is designed to be used anywhere.

Macintosh aoc monitor refresh rate


Europe has different power supply parameters than the USA, Obviously you discovered the voltage difference, hence the transformer, but the USA sends AC voltage at 60 cycles per second while most of Europe is at 50 cycles. You need a converter, not a transformer, if your monitor is capable, you may be able to set it to operate on the different frequency from display settings, or the monitors internal menu

Can I charge a canon video camera from canada in australia


no , not with out an adaptor as the plug cofiguration is different than here as well as voltage regulator 110 to 220 type, once you buy one of them ( check online) then you can use it...good luck.

Change the voltage from 240v to 120v


Hello,

Unless there is a 240/120 switch on the back, this amplifier cannot change voltage. The only way is to replace the power transformer, and when you do that you need to use the exact model transformer Peavey uses for the 120 version. I have also seen differences in handling power outside of just a different transformer for USA/Euro models.
The differences between these two market models might be beyond what is cost-effective to convert.

If it is the Peavey blazer 158, they go for as cheap as 100 bucks here in the states. Or buy one new for 120.00 bucks and 4.99 shipping: http://www.dcmusicstore.com/Peavey-blazer-158-guitar-amplifier

Best advice: sell it for what ever you can get and buy one here.

Hope this helps!

Will a Canon Pixma MP 160 printer work in europe running 220 volt


Have a look on the markings on the adaptor. There it will be mentioned ---input voltage ---- 115V or 220V
If both 115 and 220 are mentioned it will automatically handle voltage differences.

Please make sure to avoid burning.

Does Nintendo Wii work abroad?


Hey Erolon,

Nintendo Wii's sold within the United States will primarily be NTSC-formatted devices. Unfortunately, because Europe utilizes the PAL format instead of NTSC, you would need to have an NTSC-compliant TV in order to use a Wii purchased within the U.S.

Please also keep in mind that video games are often region-coded to work only with the consoles sold in the same area of the world. In other words...if you were to purchase a Wii within the U.S., you would only be able to play video games purchased within the U.S. as well.

Additionally, remember that the United States and Europe use different electrical standards: 110V/60Hz for the U.S. and 220V/50Hz for Europe. In order for any electrical device purchased within the U.S. to function properly overseas, a voltage adaptor may be required.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Charging phone in Europe


Yes!!

Any adapter that accepts up to 220volts will work with just the plug end adapter. However if it only accepts 110 you will need to purchase a voltage converter.

Have a safe trip in europe!

Canon powershot sd750


The AC adapter for the battery charger shoud work from 110V-240V with auto detection for voltage. Look at the marking on the AC adapter and the input voltage should show 110V-240V. Once you verify this, the charger will work on 220V and you will only need the outlet adapter.
