  • An FYI... almost all electronics (not hair dryers, irons, refrigerators, or other appliances with heating elements) can operate on 90-240vac at 50-60hz. Electronics only!!! This would be things like laptops, phone chargers, and other electronics one typically travels with, even my CPAP! Pretty much anything with a black box power supply. Look on the specifcation chart printed on the power supply. If it says 90-240vac 50-60hz input, youre good to go. If it is thusly labeled you can run it right off the line voltage of whatever country you are in with just a plug adapter. No voltage adapter box needed. Modern electronic power supplies are made to take this wide variety of voltages because of the international nature of distribution. Nobody wants to make 5 different power supplies for one product and then have to make sure they get the correct ones to the right country. Easier to make 1 universal power supply and have different modular power cords for each country. Also, some countries, like Saudi Arabia, have both 120 and 240 plugs. Yaaay. A coworker blew up my traveling network switch there because the power supply was only rated for 120vac and he plugged it into 220vac.... POP! Smoke! So this is true ONLY if the power supply is labeled 90-240vac and 50-60hz input.
