Hello everyone,

So do I need to purchase a converter or Adapter if I am planning on using my electronics in Singapore? ( I am moving from the US).
What kind should I get?

MANY THANKS,

:wink:

Look at the charger. if it says 110-115/240-250 V it will work just fine. You will just need a plug adapter/multi-adapter.

QUESTION!!

My dell laptop can not plug(doe not fit) in the adapter that hotel provides me...what should I do now? ( they have this standard 250 V~ 13 AMP).

My camera is 100-240 VAC, so can I use the standard adapter hotel provides? ( it says 250 V on the standard so I am confused)

:?

Thanks

Your camera is designed to handle all voltages between 100 and 240 V so yes, you can use any adapter that your recharger will plug into and subsequently into the local style socket. It's very easy to buy travel adapters in the airports that have slide in connectors to fit most any plug configuration in the world. You just need to ensure that the charger can handle the voltage. (in this case yes as it says 100-240VAC).
