Dual voltage & Single voltage rated appliance

Whether you will need a converter or transformer, you can decide by looking at the appliance rating plate. Converters are typically used with appliances that operate for a short duration (1-2 hours), whilst most transformers can be used alongside appliances that operate continuously.

The label of dual voltage rated appliance states ‘INPUT: 110-240V’, this means that you will not need a converter or transformer but just a travel adaptor. Since Taiwan operates on a 110V supply voltage, which is within the range (110-240V).

If the appliance is not dual voltage rated, the single voltage appliance will need to be used with a voltage transformer or converter to allow the appliance to work safely and properly (unless the appliance operates at 110V).

Where to buy power plug (travel) adapter?

In Taiwan, it is super easy to buy everything. You can effortless find adapters, converters and electronic travel accessories right at the airport and the stores downtown which is selling 3C products or even stationary.

You can search “Kuang Nan Wholesale Shop” and “Jing Shing Fa” on Google map, they are selling tons of them; or there’re some chances that you can find them in convenient store!
