I will be in New York this time in 3 weeks.
Apart from buying a UK > USA travel adapter, would i need a voltage converter? I would need to charge things like my mobile, laptop, camera, ect and also would also need to use my hair straightners.
As i have never been to the USA before i have no idea!

Have a look at the plugs, power packs etc for your equipment. If they say 110v-230v or 110v-240v then you'll be fine, as the power pack will adapt to the lower voltage out in the states automatically :thumbsup:

Mind and take a normal uk 4 way adapter saves you trying to plug in all your stuff into one socket :thumbsup:
Oh and wrap up very well indeed

hair straighteners and hair clippers sometimes do not work so double check on those kinds of items....
the rest should be ok....

I didn't have to fill this in? :thinking:

I went for business... would that make it different or did my company take care of it for me?

One thing to be wary of is if you (like Me!) need to use GHD's - they don't heat up to full temeperature properly - they do work but not to full capacity.
Just a warning cos I wish someone had told me!!
Have a fab time! ;)

Thanks for all your replys. My phone charger says 110v-240v, but my hair straightners only say 240v.
