Dual Voltage Flat Irons
Hey ladies! My wife learned the hard way that a North American flat iron doesn’t work overseas when hers blew up recently in Thailand. Most of North America runs on 120 volts, but many other countries run on anywhere from 220 volts to 240 volts. So, if you have a flat iron designed for the 120-volt world, be careful plugging it into a socket of 220 volts or higher…unless of course it’s a dual/universal voltage appliance or you’re using a converter. Here’s a list of dual voltage flat irons on Amazon.com that may come in handy on your next trip.
