Adapters, Converters, Electricity...oh my!

Jump to last reply

I just need clarification.

In Thailand, there are two types of plugs. Flat blade plug (like US) and two round pins.

If my computer, camera charger, cell phone charger, etc. say 100-240V then I can just plug those puppies directly into the outlet if the plug is flat blade. If it's the two round pins, then I attach the correct adapter then plug it into the wall. NO CONVERTER NEEDED.

If any of my appliances (curling iron, make-up mirror, etc.) say 120V, then I need to use and a converter along with the adapter.

I just don't want to blow up my computer, curling iron, etc.

Same for our short stay in Hong Kong...just a different adapter.
