Why do we need travel adapters?
In the era when electronic products are rampant, including mobile phones, bluetooth headsets, ipads, etc. Especially mobile phones, they have become a must-have item for people. However, charging these items may become a troublesome problem when you go abroad. Because the voltage & electricity vary from countries to countries, and you must have a travel adapter in hand to solve the problem. And today I would like to introduce how to select the UK travel adapter.
2 tips of charging in the UK
In the UK , the rated voltage is 230 V and the current frequency is 50 Hz. If your country’s rated voltage is between 220 – 240 V, you can use your appliance to charge in the UK. However, If your country’s standard voltage range is 100 V – 127 V (such as in the US, Canada, etc.), you will need to buy a travel adapter. You can also consider a combined power plug adapter/voltage converter.
- Current frequency
If there is no voltage difference, but if the UK’s current frequency (50 Hz) is different from your country’s frequency, it is not recommended to charge with your own charger. I suggest that you check the labels on your device, because some devices never need a converter. If the label reads “INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz”, the device is available for all countries in the world. This is common for appliances such as tablets/laptops.
