I’ve Got the Power!

If you’re moving to another country you need to figure out which electronics you will bring.  Here in Canada we like 120v 60hz power with this plug.

France though uses 230v 50hz and these plugs.

What freaks me out is the voltage. For sixty years 120v is “normal” and 240v is reserved for stoves and dryers, and is seriously dangerous! 240v can kill you!

So the questions are:

  1. Will my tech work with 230v?
  2. Will it work with 50hz?
  3. Will an adaptor plug make it work?
