NSTV to PAL Converters

Post by Ozzie2007 » Fri, 08 Dec 2006 11:58 am

I have a NSTC LCD TV and saw internet ads for converters, does anyone know if they are available at electronics stores in Singapore?
Also, are there currency converters available in Singapore for US appliances to run on Singapore power?

You'll have better luck searching for NTSC converters.

Banks and money changers are happy to convert currencies. In case it's American voltage (110V) vs Singaporean voltage (240V) that you're worried about, yes, you can buy converters, but you shouldn't unless you really really need to, because the cheap ones catch fire and detonate devices attached to them on a depressingly regular basis and the good ones are really expensive and power-hungry. Many electrical devices accept both (check for a little "110~240V" label/switch on the back), big bulky things like fridges and washing machines are best sourced locally, really expensive high-end audio doesn't behave well with converted current, etc.
