Question: What is voltage conversion?

Answer: Voltage conversion is the function of a voltage converter/transformer. A voltage converter/transformer is a device that transfers electricity from one outlet to another through magnetic coils. In particular, this device is used to change electricity from 220 volts into 110 volts and vice-versa.

If you travel to foreign countries, it is almost necessary for you to get acquainted to voltage converters/transformers. This device is crucial in order for you to be able to use your personal items such a hair dryer and electric shaver in another country. It can also be used for personal equipment like kitchen appliances that you want to use overseas.

As such, we recommend that before you travel overseas, you research what electricity voltage (110 volts or 220 volts) is used in the country you will be visiting or relocating to.
