Hi everyone,

I'm planning on a trip to Taiwan and I understand that the voltage there is 110 . I need to charge my camera/handphone batteries there.

What I would like to enquire is, do I need to bring a step up transformer ?

Hope to get some response from seasoned travellers.

Regards,

Hi.... how about checking if the charger you will be bringing, is the Mutil-Voltage type. Most modern charger could be use world-wide. Look for the voltage 110-240V on the charger. :thumbsup:

Not necessary, check if your AC adapters marked 110v-240v.

Most AC adapters of mobile phones will accept dual voltage. All you need is a socket adapter.

I am uncertain about camera adapters. Mine says dual voltage, not sure about yours.

Like other said, if your charger is rated 110v, it's usable. However, do take note of the socket in Taiwan is different from Sinagpore, M'sia.
