I'm in need of a converter so I can charge my digital camera I brought from Canada!! Anyone got one that they need to get rid of or don't use anymore??? Live in Guri City and new to the area, so it'll have to be close by.
Please email me: mrevan03@hotmail.com

Thanks!!

If the plug for your camera has a brick attached to it, chances are the brck will convert from 220 to whatever the camear needs. Just read the brick. In that case you just need a little doohicky that you add to the plug so it fits the local sockets. - available at most local electronic shops, cheap.

it's got a adaptor on it, but it doesn't say it is adaptable for 220v unfortunately... the input says only 100-110V. I don't want to risk ruining it. Smile
Thanks for the info though!

Ouch, that's rare these days.

Anyway, if you plan to travel much, you might be well advised to buy a new charger for 110-240 V - you can probably get one here. But, apart from that, you will have to have one of those dreadful step-down transformers.
