Voltage Converters

As you may or may not know, when you travel internationally you will need a voltage converter in the electrical outlets in order to use your electrical items such as a curling iron, blow dryer and battery charger. You can find voltage converters at a number of stores including Walmart. These converter kits come with several different adaptors for various countries. While the kit may have the adapter for the country you will be visiting it may not actually fit into the outlet. The prongs may be the right shape but the adaptor may not be. A great example of this is when I went to Spain. I had my voltage converter with the adaptor for Spain however when I got to the hotel and went to plug something in I realized that my adapter was square shaped and the wall outlet was round and indented about 1” so the was no way my square adaptor was going to fit. So before you travel internationally do a little research to make sure you have the right adaptor.
