Voltage converter for italy travel

It is important to keep in mind that there are differences in current intensity, frequency or volt measurement. Sometimes, even if the slots of the plug fit perfectly, it does not mean that the device is compatible, moreover, in the long run we could damage the device if the intensity of the voltage are not the same.

It is therefore very important to be sure of the type of voltage that we will find at the destination. Also, the adapters already perform the function of current transformation to ensure a correct transmission of frequency and voltage.

However, even if 2 countries operate with the same voltage there can always be a second problem: the shape of the plug. To ensure that the correct voltage is used and that the plug type works, a universal adapter will solve our problems.

The main reason why not all countries use the same type of plugs is due to a non-globalized technological development and the failure to reach a consensus to homogenize them among manufacturers and countries.

Looking back, the race to popularize the use of electricity began at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. However, at that time it was impossible to predict that the world would change so much and that we would travel around the world loaded with electrical appliances.

The result is that today there are 16 different types of plugs in the world. Each of them is given a letter to name it. We can find from the type A plug to the type N plug. We are going to repair all the plug models in the world.

The type C is composed of two round and parallel pins while in the wall socket we find the two holes where it is connected. What we colloquially know as the male and the female, expression that we use for most of the cable connections.

Plugs, sockets, adapters and the rest of the information you need to travel from Colombia to Italy on this page. If you want a report with other countries, restart the wizard to find electrical adapters for your trip here.

Your Colombian electrical devices are made to use 110 Volts, but the Italian grid provides 230 Volts, this is a substantial difference that requires you to take some additional steps in preparation for your trip:

On the positive side, nowadays many devices automatically adapt to the mains voltage and work perfectly, for example, cell phone chargers are usually multi-voltage (but please check yours in particular). It is important to pay attention to the voltage of your device. By connecting the electronics to the wrong voltage, in the luckiest of cases, the device will break or temporarily stop working; but do not take this lightly in the worst case electrocution and fire are a real possibility.
