ConvertersIf your device is not a multi-voltage device that accepts 120-240 volts (most computers, smartphones, and cameras are) then you have to purchase a converter to address the difference in voltage. It is important to remember that a voltage converter is only applicable if your device will only accept 100-120 volts. You can usually find this information on the label of the device that tells you what voltage or input the device can handle. If you can't find the voltage for your device, it is prudent to check online or look at the instruction sheet or box that it came in.
Types of ConvertersA converter basically steps down the electrical voltage from the outlet to the device so that it can be used safely.
