Traveling with an Ego one
I am thinking of traveling to England in May, but it has just occurred to me that they are on 240v over there, whereas in Canada we are in 120.     When I go to England am I likely to explode my ego one if I plug it in ?Scratch_one-s_head

In a word, yes. However, the charger on many China-made devices is multi-voltage so it is worth looking at the small writing on the underside of it (At least that is where it usually is)

You will need a UK plug adapter, our plugs are very much larger than the US ones which I assume Canada uses. This (From Wikipedia) is a UK plug. Our nominal voltage these days is 230V though in practice my house shows 241V.

Typically if it's a universal voltage device you should find something like this

It's OK.    I will have to start reading the instructions.  It charges from 100 -240 volts.

I will have to get an adapter.  I already knew about that problem as I'm English too. Smile
