Note: If you are traveling overseas, you will need a voltage converter, considering that the United States and Canada operate on 110V to 120V electric current, whereas most countries in the world run on 220V, 230V and even as high as 240V.
Not all gadgets require a voltage converter, though you may be able to get by with just a simple plug adapter. A plug adapter will allow you to use your device without the need to convert electricity, but the charger has to be rated at both voltages.
