Many US products require a transformer or converter abroad due to the voltage difference that countries operate on. Voltage converters are small, usually travel-sized and can be used on a variety of different electric items with heating devices such as hair dryers, curlers, irons, and radios. It’s always wise to first check the wattage of your appliance before using a voltage converter. One of the main things to consider in a travel voltage converter is its weight.
