How to use American appliances in Germany - Power converterBY: Alvin Bartram | Category: Travel | Post Date: 2008-09-04
At first, you should know that most of the American appliances are created to run of 110 volts and most of the German appliances are made to run of 220 volts. It means, when you plug an American razor, stereo, computer, etc into a German outlet, it will destroy it! The points are dissimilar, so it is difficult to make this error but outlet adapter is sold and this occurs often. The cause the adapter is sold is because American appliances are Dual-Voltage, which run of 110 or 220.
In order to find out when your appliance is Dual-Voltage or not, you should look at the power massage on the appliance, or on the appliance itself /the cord's power box. If the appliance is not double voltage, the option you that have to use it in the country are to buy a power converter.
It can be obtained on the worldwide web, or choose appliance and hardware shops. When you are somehow permitted access to an American Army base in Germany, you have the opportunity to acquire them at the Post Exchange.
While opting for your power converter, make sure that it is changing 220 volts to 110 volts. Also, you should select the power converter's size in which will be necessary for your device; this should be comparatively self-explanatory.
