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.

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