Can Singer 7258 Stylist be used in a Country like India with 220 - 240 voltage? Is there any UK model for the same?

the machine comes in two versions european {220-240v}
or american {110v}

you need to use a transformer to give 110-240v
the current this machine uses is less than 3amps
so a 3amp 110-240v converter is easily found on ebay for $10

How to change the voltage for Yamaja YSP4000 from 120 V to 220 v

The US and Canadian models are fixed voltage - 120V 60Hz. There isn't a model sold anywhere in the world that is multi voltage. The European model is 220~240V 50/60Hz

If you want to take this product abroad with you, then you will need to buy a Step Down Transformer. This will take 220~240V and convert it to 120.

The power consumption of the YSP4000 is 55W. You should over specify the Step Down Transformer by at least 20% to ensure there's enough current when the speaker needs it. 70W minimum should cover it.

Which step down transformer should I get in order to use the USA dyson dc39 in Aus? Do I need to just get the step down from 240v to 120v or need the isolated 1500w step down?

To use an American Dyson in Australia you need a step up to 240v from the American 120v. Better to but a European machine that is the right voltage already.

I bought this computer in japan and has following power specification: 100-110v 6A and 200-240v 3A . wondering if it can be used without any problem in singapore?


If you don't know whether your devices can handle European electrical systems check the capacity of your devices and appliances before traveling. A gadget that has a dual voltage system usually indicates a 110-220 voltage, which means that you can use it in both American and European plugs and sockets.

Since your computer has "DUAL VOLTAGE" system it can be used any where in the world.

Does the 5825 charge only on a single voltage (120 or 230 volts ac) or is it 100 to 250 volts usable everywhere.

Hello, It depends where you bought it.But now a days most of the power units come either in DUAL VOLTAGE (switchable ) or UNIVERSAL VOLTAGE ..USA (110 v AC) and European (230 V AC ) works in between.The later one automatically accepts the plug in voltage without any switch.
If you look carefully his info should have been posted ( with tiny letters ) onto the power adapter.

Can the Norelco 3805 XL be charged from a European 220 VAC supply? I purchased it in the United States and am about to take a trip to Europe.

model 3805XL is compatible with 100-240V. You will not need a voltage converter but you will need a simple adapter to fit the european wall outlets. These can be found at See link below[]=39

Can I use a US bought Nespresso Aeroccino in Europe

Almost certainly not. Domestic appliances in the US are designed for 110v and European domestic electrical supplies are 240v. Only devices designed to be portable beween coutries, such as laptops, electric shavers etc., are fitted with automatic variable voltage inputs.

I cannot be 100% certain because I can't find a manual, but unless you can find a voltage input switch on the machine I would suggest you don't try it. 240v will not do it any good at all!

What do I need to use my Touchsmart tx2 in France. Do I need an adapter or transformer or both

You live in the US, right?
First check the voltage rating on your power supply / charger's primary voltage range. If it states around 110V only, then you need a transformer from 230V to 110V with an euopean plug. Make sure it's a real transformer (rather heavy, rated at ~100VA will be OK), and not a lightweight high-power adaptor, used for lamps, pressing irons, heaters and similar appliances.
If on your charger it states something like "90-240V", then it will cope with the standard european voltage of 230V, and the only thing you need is a travel adapter that will have an european plug on one side and an american socket on the other.

Power cord exchangable

every electrical machine should have the required voltage printed somewhere on it. You never need to open it up to find out.

Look for something like 110/120 v or 220/240v
