Do I Need A Power Converter?

I am going to Europe in a few months and I was wondering if I need a power converter for my digital camera and my iPod? My digital camera charger says that it is rated from 100-240 volts and I have no idea what voltage an iPod charger uses.

Europe uses 220 Volts, so you are safe without a converter. these days all electronice equipment can handle most voltages.

Most likely the chargers accept 110-240V, but the plug is different. So you won't need a power converter, just a plug converter, which is really cheap.

If the Ipod charger dosn't indicate voltage input, I would be a little leery about not using an converter with it. With all the crap I take with me overseas, having one helps.


Yay Pudding!

Also don't forget that Europe is 50 Hz frequency and the US is 60 Hz frequency.

Yeah the camera charger says it can do 50-60 Hz so that isn't a problem

thanks for the help

This has been officially 230V for years thoughout Europe, including the U.K. The physical plug will vary by the country, however. http://www.yung-li.com.tw/EN/info/ww_specifications.htm

50 or 60 Hz presents no problem for any devices any longer.

Anybody have the stats on the iPod?

Any recommendations on a plug adapter?

Apple does. The specs for the power adapter are on their site. But I'm rather certain it will have no problem with either power level.

Expensive.... but will work just about anywhere with anything...

I have one, and worked great last year. Even with an ipod adapter. As long as your power adapter says that it works with 240 volts, you will be good.
