China Electrical outlets

Postby pods » Wed Apr 07, 2010 3:57 pm

We are going to China in mid-May and am wondering about electrical converters and adapters.

Any help with this will be accepted. We live in the USA so we use two prong straight blades.

Thanks,

You probably won't need a converter unless you've got some major electronics. You can check your chargers, they should say something like "AC 100-240V" which means it can handle the voltage in North America and other places in the world.

As for adapters, you can get a 5 pack of different shapes for fairly cheap. I just bring them all with me because they don't take up much room and I'm covered for whatever I run into.
