Plug/Outlet Adapters for Foreign LDS Missions

One thing I learned when I went to Russia, is that electrical systems differ around the world, both in voltage and frequency.  The plugs, sockets and outlets are also different.  Because of the difference in electricity, you will need a converter/adapter and maybe a transformer.  Your American appliances (clock, radio, electric shaver, electric toothbrush) will work with the proper adapter.  However, you will notice that these devices do not last as long.  My electrical shaver only made it abou 18 months before it quit taking a charge and I had to get a Russian one.  Then I had to throw my Russian one away when I got home because it wasn’t compatible with American electricity.


Some people say not to worry about taking your own adapters because there will be leftovers in the Mission apartments.  That was not always true in my mission, and I always carried my plugs with me.  Especially, if you are going to be using an electric razor.  One trick I learned is to plug my razor into the adapter before plugging it into the wall.  Otherwise, you will sometimes get sparks.   Here are some good options for outlet adapters:

Step Down Voltage Converter for International Travel

Ideal For Fax Machines, Laptops, Ipods, Battery Chargers And Other Portable Equipment – Converts 220/240V Foreign Power To 110V

Thought on Power Converter: I never once used a power converter, just adapters, on my mission. But that is probably because I didn’t have anything electrical that I cared too much. With the new changes in mission technology uses, these voltage converters may become more useful. You definitely don’t want to fry a 110v Ipad with too much foreign voltage.
