I have a question about bringing electronics over to the U.S. from Japan. How do people deal with the voltage difference? In Japan they run 100v, but we have 120 here, so if that's a problem, where do you get a converter? Thanks.

Hi crazypiper,

It's possible some japanese electronic devices have a power converter in their back (generally a small red switch to change the voltage). Also, you must check if their AC frequency is the same.

Hey Chicon,

The actual device I have is a DVD player and it has no converter switch, but it is a 50/60Hz player, so that's okay. I just don't want to fry the system with an extra 20 volts of juice, if that's going to be a problem.
