I’m going to Ireland in a few months and I’m concerned about the difference in power between there and the USA.
Ireland & UK use 230v 50hz 3 square pins type outlet.
USA uses 120v 60hz 2 (or 3) prongs.
What specifically info can you give me about using electricity over there?
From what I can tell if I’m using a device where the power is supply rated for 100 - 240 V, I’m OK as far as using the device; but I still need to locate the correct power cord to use. Is this correct? i.e. my laptop, or CPAP charger is two pieces. 1) the converter that plugs into the laptop, and 2) the power cord that plugs into the wall and into the converter. Will I just be able to find a replacement cord for the UK style outlet? If so, where? I’ve Googled around; but since I don’t specifically know how to specify the cord style at the converter end, I’m not able to find what I’m looking for.
What about USB style charged things like my cell phones, or my tablet, that just come with a power cord that plugs into the wall with no conversion? I know you can buy converters, but from what I have read, you shouldn’t leave something plugged in overnight for example.
