Foreign Voltage Chart

Some countries in the Western Hemisphere have an electric power of 110 volts, 60 hertz (cycles per second) alternating current (AC). However, the majority of countries run on 220-440 volts and 50 hertz AC. Depending on your destination, you may need convertors, transformers, voltage regulators or adapter plugs.
Convertors are used to change the electrical volts (50 or 60 hertz) an item receives.
Appliances and equipment which rely on internal-timing mechanisms -- such as clocks, mixers and stereos -- should be converted if necessary. Depending on the appliance, it may be less expensive to purchase a new one at destination. Remember that convertors only work with the same type of current -- an appliance manufactured to run on AC will not work on direct current (DC).
If your destination country uses a different voltage, you'll want to take several transformers with you. Electrical equipment designed for 110 volts needs a step-down transformer to operate on 220 volts.
Where the frequency of current is unstable, you can prolong the life span of your appliances by plugging them into voltage regulators.
In addition to transformers and regulators, you may also need adapter plugs. Appliances with flat-blade plugs are common in Canada and the United States, whereas European countries often use plugs with two or three round prongs.
As well as differences in electricity, television broadcasting varies from country to country. Many domestic broadcasting systems are incompatible with receivers on foreign televisions. Check with the consulate to see if this pertains to your destination. If so, you may prefer to rent or purchase a television while abroad.
The following is a guide on voltage in foreign countries. In general, all references to 100V apply to the range 100V to 160V. References to 220V apply to the range 200V to 260V. Voltage varies within a country, depending on location.
