How To Use Travel Adapters
It's important to know the difference between a travel adapter and converter before you leave so you are capable of using your electronics while traveling...and so you don't blow out your hair dryer!

Once you understand how adapters work around the world, it's really simple to remember.
Always make sure to check the voltage of your electronics and look up the voltage of the countries you're traveling to on Google.
