Power adapters and Converters


In a traveler’s perfect world, every country would run on the same type of electricity and use outlets that fit the same kinds of plugs. Unfortunately for us globetrotters this isn’t the case, and when we travel overseas we’re faced with the oftentimes head-scratching task of choosing the right adapter (or should it be a converter?) for our electronics. To help you prepare for your upcoming journey overseas, here’s our guide to power adapters and converters to keep your devices safe and working properly.


 Adapters vs. converters

The big difference between an adapter and a converter is electricity. While the purpose of an adapter is to simply help the plugs on your electronics fit into (or more aptly, adapt to the shape of) foreign outlets, a converter’s job is to change the voltage found in an outlet to match that of your devices.  

When to use a converter

Thankfully, the kinds of appliances that typically need a converter are single-voltage items, which more often than not, tend to be older-model irons and hair dryers. The majority of modern-made electronics are dual- or multi-voltage, meaning that they are able to withstand more than one type of electricity and therefore, only require an adapter. If you’re unsure whether or not you’ll need one, take a look at the chart below or check out the labels on your appliances and chargers for their specific requirements.

Choosing the right adapter  

So, exactly which style of adapter will you need? The answer depends on where you’re headed. This handy guide will help you determine which types of adapter plugs you should pack when you’re getting ready for tour. If your tour spans multiple countries that use different outlets, or you’re a frequent jetsetter, we suggest picking up a universal, all-in-one travel adapter.

We can provide most of the converters, allowing you to travel without worry. If you are interested in our products, please feel free to contact us!
