Traveling to Ireland from US. Do I need a power transformer or converter?

Jump to last reply

From what I have read, the transformer is a bit more "heavy duty" than a converter, and is only needed when using electronics with things like clocks, LCD displays etc. The appliances we will be bringing are: electric razor (with LCD display), flat iron (with LCD display and auto off feature), phone chargers, and laptop. The laptop and phone chargers should be fine to just use with an adapter, since the lables on them say 120-240.

So, do I need to purchase a transformer for the flat iron and razor, or will a converter do the job? Trying to save weight and space in the luggage, as well as save $$$. Please feel free to suggest places to purchase the converter or transformer!

Thanks!
