There's a few things you can check.

First, most adapters do NOT convert voltage, they simply make the plugs fit in the other hole. If you look at the 'power brick' of the device you're connecting if it has one (AC to DC converters like USB wall chargers, laptops, etc.) then they will have Input and Output sections (most will have something like "Input: 100-240V AC~50-60Hz 0.5A"). Anything like this doesn't need a voltage converter, just the outlet adapter so it fits in the hole. Hair Dryers/Curling Irons are notorious for exploding when plugged into 240V, which is why they almost all have a switch somewhere that must be set to the higher value. If you have it set to 240 and plug into 110, it just won't get hot enough. The other way around is bad news.

If you do have a voltage converter (which is highly unlikely, it would be a very expensive and heavy device. $20 on Amazon will NOT convert voltage), then it should say somewhere on it (or in the instructions) what the output is. In this case, it should have been something like 110V AC~60Hz ???A. In this case, if your device tries to draw too many amps, you can blow up the converter (or more likely your device just won't work). For example, this device has a maximum of 200W which is flirting with what some curling iron type devices use. I am having trouble imagining any situation where using a voltage converter would blow up the device connected to it, unless the converter output was set to a higher voltage.

But in general, all of that small print that is on things that plug into outlets actually has some important and useful info. As long as everything is in range, you shouldn't have any problems.

u/Helena_Wren · 5 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

You need a plug adapter and depending on what you’re plugging in, a voltage converter you can get both here. Some things like most laptops don’t need the voltage converter. Other things like hair dryers do, so research what you want to plug in and whether you should use the voltage converter or not.

I've traveled to quite a few places with my kit lens. It's pretty damn good.

You still have time to fill out the rest of your stuff, if needed:

Filters:

Singh-Ray Filters makes a "ColorCombo LB" filter. Works like wearing a pair of polarized GOOD quality sunglasses outdoors. I never took it off. Excellent quality and helped when the sky was overexposed and when I generally wanted to get a more intense color.

Lens:

Your kit lens will be more than fine for anything during the day. But at night is different. The kit is meh at night. You definitely want something to capture night time. Maybe some star time lapses? Those are always cool.

Leica 15mm F1.7 My wallet hurt when I bought this, but to be honest, it's on my camera more than it's not. It makes the night look amazing. The quality is awesome too.

Panasonic 25mm f1.7 - compared to the "nifty fifty" on a full frame (25mm*2=50mm). This is our "go-to" as a second lens (for day and/or night), but to get an idea of how 'zoomed in' it is, take your kit lens and rotate it to "25mm". That's how this lens is. Too much for me, but it's still worth mentioning.

Panasonic 45-150mm f4.0-5.6 - I just bought this lens from Amazon Warehouse for $100. It's very well built and serves it's purpose (when I want to zoom in on something far away).

Microphones:

If you want a better microphone get the Videomic Pro+. The difference between this and the others are that the mic turns on/off automatically when the camera turns on/off and it has a USB rechargeable battery.

Batteries:

Speaking of extra batteries, you're going to want more. There are three types: cheap non-decoded, cheap decoded, and OEM (which are decoded).

Non-decoded means you won't know how much battery you have left in the camera. Obviously that's dumb. Spend a little more and get decoded. I really like these OAproda 2 pack + charger. No battery lasts as long as the OEM, but it's close enough. Plus, the OAproda charger is much thinner than the others and charges via USB.

SD Cards:

I love these SanDisk Extreme Pro. I purchased the 128gb because I NEVER want to be in a position that I can ever possibly run out of space.

You'll want a way to copy the files to your pc. This Transcend USB 3.0 works amazingly, and it's $9 for a two pack.

External Drive:

You WILL run out of space on your laptop. You can either purchase 3-4 SD cards, or you can get an external HDD. Each has it's pros and cons.

Battery Pack / cables:

Whether it's your phone / headphones / batteries / tablet / whatever, I suggest the Anker PowerCore. These things are beasts. One of these made sure I was able to fly from here to Australia without worrying about battery levels.

You'll also want to carry extra wires. Whether MicroUSB, USB-C, or Lightening, I would never use anything else but Anker PowerLine


International Charger:
I used the BESTEK Travel Adapter and loved it. Plenty of ports to charge stuff on. It has a small fan (to keep it cool) that some people say bothers them, but I'm the lightest sleeper and it didn't bother me. Barely heard it.

I bought one of these https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01E140XWA/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I was able to charge my phone, wife's 5x, and her laptop without any issues.

Also, get Google Fi while you're abroad. My wife and I had a pretty good experience with it in Europe and Africa last year.

u/amanforallsaisons · 2 pointsr/AskUK

American here, currently living in the West Midlands (so no local area advice from me for you re: Richmond/London). Ten years ago my wife and step kids moved to the US, and this year we moved back to the UK. Opinions are my own.

  • What American things won’t be available in the UK (food, appliances, TV shows/movies)?

    These days, especially with Amazon and streaming TV, you can find pretty much anything you'd want. That said, some of it will be pretty pricey. As a brief example, I make my own jerky with beef from the local butcher's because fuck paying $30-$40 a pound for a tiny package. From both my wife and my experience, you will miss local foods/delicacies that just aren't common/popular. You will also discover new foods you've never had a chance to try before. If one/both of you enjoys cooking, you can easily get by. As an example, you won't find American biscuits in the UK.

  • What are the big day-to-day lifestyle things that are different in the UK?

    It is a different country, and no one can really tell you what to expect, as experiences are different. I found crossing the street to take some getting used to, as I had 30+ years of ingrained lessons telling me to look the wrong way. You seem adaptable and open minded, which will be a good asset.

  • Will people hate us because we’re American?

    No. No matter where you go, people hate assholes. As long as neither of you acts like a stereotypical American/American tourist, you'll be fine, and you will make friends. Respect that it's their country. Be careful about expression absolute opinions about politics, especially their politics. Assimilate and adapt where needed, and you will have no issues preserving your American identity as an "ex-pat" who is well-liked.

  • Will my electronics work there (iphone, ipad, computer)?

    By and large yes. Anything that charges via USB is good to go, just buy some wall plugs for your cables. For most modern electronics (laptop/desktop/tv/monitor), they are typically rated to handle the full range of voltages (check on the adapter/power supply etc if you're worried). With a desktop you have to flip a switch on the power supply on your tower from 110 to 220, but with everything else, you just need to cut the plug end off the cable and re-wire it to a British fused plug. I would recommend one of these.

    Any appliances like hair dryers, things with simple motors, will NOT work unless you run them through a step down voltage adapter like I linked (unless you like electrical fires) so unless they're especially costly, you're probably better off replacing. Lightbulbs are different as well.

  • How often will I be expected to watch soccer football?

    Never if you don't want to. If you are into sports and/or have sporty mates that might be different, but it's not a national religion.

  • What else am I missing or should I know?

    How are you moving your stuff to the UK? We used upakweship.com, and it cost $2,500 door to door to ship two pallets. They'll be able to advise you on needed customs clearance, etc.

    I assume your partner's work will be arranging/paying for your visas?

    You'll have to figure out pet immigration.

    Don't call people Sir or Ma'am as a general rule. It's weird and is more likely to convey insult than offense. If you do slip, people will find it quaint.

    Since VAT is applied to products before pricing, instead of having to calculate sales tax on top of your purchase, if you have 5 quid in your pocket, you can buy 5 quid worth of things at the store.

    Public transport is generally better than in most major US cities, so that's a major plus.

    If you have any follow up questions I'd be happy to answer.
u/Maximusdeximus · 2 pointsr/peacecorps

Ditto to this. I've become the unofficial photographer for my cohort and school because of the quality of my camera on my phone.

I also brought a video camera that has stayed in my bag 95% of the time since I've gotten here. It's just easier to carry a phone around rather than a camera and a phone.

Also, a surge protector and battery bank will be lifesavers even if your site has electricity. It might not be reliable. The ones below are great.

Also, seasonings and snacks...lots of seasonings and snacks...

u/MarkVII88 · 2 pointsr/travel

I have traveled to Ireland, Iceland, UK, Netherlands, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Italy, Dominican Republic, and the Cayman Islands with the travel power adapter listed below. I highly recommend.

Bestek universal travel adapter

I traveled to South Africa and just used a simple voltage converter and was fine. I also had my laptop, tablet, phone and camera to charge. But sometimes it’s better to be safe than sorry 😊

I picked this up back in early 2017 and it's been great. it can handle having many things plugged into it, so you only really need it, plus your regular electronincs/cords.

it's got a fan built into it, which can be good for whitenoise, but also can be annoying if you really like total quiet.

u/swollencornholio · 1 pointr/travel

I ended up buying a lot of my stuff when I was abroad. Like a toaster, blender, toiletries and shit of that nature. Research expat sites and cheap places to buy essentials in Rome so you can get stuff there.

You’ll have to check every one of your devices you want to bring but there are some that work with European outlet voltage (iPhones, iPads, etc) and some that don’t. For things that do work with the voltage buy these. For things that don’t you will need a converter. Something like this will work. Research each of your products if you plug something that needs a converter into an adaptor it will be ruined.

u/kickstand · 1 pointr/travel

Get an international USB charger like this, you can be confident it will work anywhere. You can even use it at home.
