If you’re planning an international trip, you’ll want to be familiar with adaptors and converters so you’re not left with a fried laptop or burned out shaver!
Adaptors simply enable the plug to fit into the outlet while converters make the plug fit AND convert the electricity to the proper voltage so the unit doesn’t overload, crackle and burn out!
There are two types of converters -- one for appliances that produce heat such as hair dryers and another for devices such as shavers and laptops that require a lower wattage. The best option is to purchase a dual wattage converter that will handle everything. Happy travels!
