What devices can I charge?

Dual voltage is the magical word in charging devices abroad.

Most small devices such as phones, tablets, laptops and cameras are capable of operating in a range between 100 and 240 volts and use frequencies (Hz) between 50-60 Hz. To find out if your device is dual voltage, look for the fine print on your device stating '100-240V, 50-60Hz'

With dual voltage devices you'll only need a power plug adapter to use the local outlets and you're good to go.

What devices do I need a converter for?

Most small appliances work on all voltages. Hair dryers and straigteners form an exception and are often made for a single voltage.

Also, when moving abroad and you're bringing your washing machine, dryer, fridge or oven, chances are you will need a voltage converter.
