Going to Germany

Germany is a country in Western Europe. It is a popular tourist destination. In order to use electronics from the United States in Germany, as well as most other countries outside of the American continent, you need two things, a voltage converter and a plug adapter, unless you have dual-voltage electronics. Dual-voltage electronics will work in other countries that use 220v, without a voltage converter. Most countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia use 220v. North America, most of Central America, and much of South America uses 110v. Germany is a country that uses 220v. The rest of Europe mostly uses 220v as well. If you are traveling to Germany, be sure to bring either a voltage converter or dual-voltage appliances. If you try to use single-volt appliances in Germany, you could cause a fire. But how do you know if your electronics are dual-volt or single-volt?
Look for the voltage rating directly on your appliance. If it says 110v, then it is a single-volt appliance. In this case, find the wattage by either looking on the appliance, or multiplying the voltage by the amp. Then, buy a voltage converter for this appliance that has a wattage at least 25% higher than the appliance. This helps the voltage converter to last longer.
But if you found a voltage rating on your appliance that listed 110v-220v, then it is dual-volt. You do not need a voltage converter for these appliances to function in Germany and other countries that use 220v electrical current.
However, even if you are bringing dual-voltage electronics with you to Germany, you still need a plug adapter, because Germany uses a different type of plug than the Americas. But be careful when buying your plug adapter, because there are six different types of plug adapter corresponding to the six different international plug types, and if if you get the wrong one, it won’t work in Germany. So be sure to buy the correct one.

Use your electronics in Georgia when traveling

In order to use electronics from the United States in Georgia, as well as most other countries outside of the American continent, you need two things, a voltage converter and a plug adapter, unless you have dual-voltage electronics. Dual-voltage electronics will work in other countries that use 220v, without a voltage converter. Most countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia use 220v. North America, most of Central America, and much of South America uses 110v. Georgia is a country that uses 220v. If you are traveling to Croatia, be sure to bring either a voltage converter or dual-voltage appliances. If you try to use single-volt appliances in Georgia, you could cause a fire.

Gambia, Western Africa Power plug adapter

The Republic of Gambia is a country in Western Africa. Are you planning a trip there? Africa of great interest to many scientists, but you may just want to experience the rich culture, the warm climate, or the unique food. But you should know that Gambia uses electrical plugs that are probably shaped differently from the ones you are used to in the United States. You might be planning to bring some of your electronics to Gambia, but American-style plugs are not used at all in Gambia. There are six different types of plugs that are used around the world, and most countries outside North and South America use the common three-cylindrical-pronged design. Gambia uses this model, but also a two-prong design. But you do not need to buy new electronics in Cyprus in order to use any electronics there. You simply need plug adapters. Purchase both types that you will need in Gambia, and be sure to buy the correct kind, keeping in mind there are six total plug types, and Gambia only uses two.
Most places outside of North America also use a higher voltage current. 110v is the voltage used by North America and most of Central and South America. However, in most other continents, 220v is used. In countries where 220v is used, it is important to bring a voltage converter that has a 25% higher wattage rating than the appliance you are using it for. In Gambia, the voltage used is 220v, the most commonly used voltage. So if you are going to Gambia, be sure to also get a voltage converter. This does not apply if you are bringing dual-voltage appliances. However, single-volt appliances will need a voltage converter. The wattage should be indicated on the indication panel of the devices. If not, multiply the voltage by the amp. Then you can buy the correct voltage converters for your selected appliances.
