Q: What is the difference between a power converter/adapter and a plug adapter?
A: A plug adapter allows an appliance to be plugged into a wall outlet that is different from the pin configuration on the appliance. Plugs do not convert electricity. Converters and electricity adapters convert electricity. If your appliance(s) use 110V electricity and you are traveling to one with 220V electricity, you will need a foreign power converter/adapter which converts 220V to 110V. If your appliance(s) are 220V and you are traveling to a country with 110V electricity, you need a converter. Back to top.
