Do I Need a Voltage Converter? 2008/5/5 12:49
Canada
Hi,
I'm planning to buy a curling iron when I travel to japan in the summer. Will I be able to use the iron without a voltage converter when I return? I live in Canada.
Also, if I do need a converter, should I buy it in Japan or Canada?

Thanks

Check the device to see if it is either 100 or 110 volt. It should have a lable or be engraved onto it somewhere. If it is either an only has 2 leads on the cord(not 3) you will be fine. If it has a 3rd pin (the round one) just bring a power strip that has 2 leads to plug-in but has jacks with 3.

It will get about 10-20% hotter in Canada. If you have to get a voltage converter, it will not be worth doing so, as the converter may end up costing more than buying a curling iron in Canada.
