European electricity voltage is 220 volts, rather than the 110 volts used in the United States. This means that your electronics or appliances will not work unless you convert the voltage. You will need power converters that we sell. The converters will provide sufficient power for 110 volts devices. Some of the modern mobile phones, laptops computers and cameras might be equipped to handle both US and European power. Check the label on your adapter. If it says "110-240 V," then you only need a plug adapter rather than a power converter.
Voltage in America
In the USA electricity is normally supplied at 110 or 120 volts at a frequency of 60 Hz.
Voltage in Europe
The European electricity is generally at 220 volts and a frequency of 50 Hz. This is standard voltage throughout France, Italy, Germany, England, Spain, and the rest of Europe.
To use electrical electronics or appliances in Europe, Voltage Converter is needed in order to plug in without electrocuting your machine, and maybe yourself.
