  • Global Electronics for International Use: What You Need to Know

    global electronics for international useAll electronics are not created equal. In fact, around the world - even if you purchase the same brand and model - there are various differences in both construction and performance. Not always visible to the naked eye, these differences can make or break your ability to utilize your electronics in other parts of the world.
     

    Most Electronics are NOT Universal

    While it might not be common knowledge to the average person, the truth is that most electronics are not designed for global use. From the different standards in voltage to the multiple audio & video formats used in various countries, there are many obstacles to overcome if you plan to purchase or use your electronics in other countries. With the exception of laptops - which usually feature a power adapter that works with any voltage - nearly all electronics are only useful in the country or region where they were purchased. While it's possible to use your devices in other regions of the world, it will usually require expensive converters, adapters, and a lot of messy cables.
     

    The Voltage Problem

    Voltage is just one of the many issues with electronics. The voltage problem also applies to personal devices and kitchen appliances; anything that uses electricity. While North America uses 120 volts, Europe uses 220 volts. This difference in voltage means that your US electronics will receive an overdose of electricity if used in Europe (which is very dangerous), while European-bought electronics won't have enough electricity to function properly. Either situation can result in damaged devices, fire, or even electrical shock.
     

    Color Systems and Formatting Issues

    Color systems are another issue, and something that we would hardly ever think to consider. TVs and blu-ray players use specific formatting to encode and decode the information that displays the image. The 3 main color systems around the world are PAL, NTSC, and Secam. Each color system is specific and it's not possible to use a PAL TV with a NTSC Blu-ray Player. PAL, NTSC, and Secam models are respectively manufactured and sold to regions that utilize those formats and are not cross-compatible without expensive converters.
     

    Disc Playback and Region Coding Problems

    This issue is similar to the rest but it only applies to DVD and Blu-ray Players. There are 3 different "regions" of Blu-ray and 7+ regions for DVD discs. In each region, the players are coded to read discs that originate from that region only. For example, Region 1 DVDs are only compatible with region 1 DVD Players. The reason for this is mainly to prevent copyright issues, minimize pirating, and to ensure timely release dates and fair prices in various parts of the world. Another aspect is political and religious environments in which much censorship demands that certain versions of media are not available, especially if they are deemed to violent or provocative.
     

    How to Solve it all?

    There is a simple solution to all of the challenges faced by traveling, purchasing, and using electronics from around the world. After all, it should be easy enough to simply plug & play without the headaches, right? Actually, it's much easier than you think.
     
    Multisystem electronics, global electronics and region-free players unlock the universal potential of your devices to guarantee compatibility regardless of where you are in the world. Specially, professionally modified and not available in major retailers, these units feature hardware/software advancements that give them the global flexibility and functionality that the manufacturers should have given you since the start.
     
    Multisystem TVs feature updated internal components and specialized software that allows them to work with any color system. They can also work with any voltage - all you need to do is flip a switch on the TV to change from 120 to 220 volts. This lets you use your TV with a Blu-ray Player from anywhere in the world, and to utilize the local cable TV without a mess of extra wiring and pricey video conversion gadgets. Region-Free DVD and Region-Free Blu-ray Players allow you to play discs from anywhere, on any TV (even non-multisystem TVs), with any electrical voltage from 110 to 240 volts. Universal personal devices such as curling irons and razors are compatible with any voltage, relieving you from any worries about a fire or damaging your device.
     
    The best part about these global, multisystem, and region-free electronics is that you can choose from your favorite brands and the latest models. It's important to find an experienced retailer who specializes in these modified units because they are not available in department stores or major retailers. They are professionally modified to give you the global flexibility that you deserve and most of them feature the same manufacturer's warranty.

  • International Relocation Services with 220 Volt Electronics and Appliances

    international relocation services with electronics and appliancesIf you're like many people around the world who have relocated to different countries or continents, you're probably aware of the challenges. You may be moving to retire and live less expensively in a tropical paradise, or maybe you're relocating for work. You also might be moving just because you found the perfect place where you've decided you want to settle. It can be a very exciting and highly rewarding experience, but it's surely not without its setbacks. From legal documents regarding visas and citizenship, to banking, investments, and finding & securing property, there's no shortage of hoops to jump through. Moving overseas requires some definite patience. On the other hand, if you know what you're doing, you can streamline your international relocation and reduce the headaches.
     
    As specialists in international relocation, 220 Electronics offers services that cater to a rather important part of your move. As a global retailer of electronics and home appliances, we are constantly helping people who are planning to relocate or have already done so.
     
    You might be asking what electronics and appliances has to do with relocation, so let's answer that question for you in the simplest way possible.
     

    220 Volt Electronics and Appliances

    Around the world, different countries and continents use varying voltages of electricity for both residential and commercial services. In the US and North America, the standard is 120 volt electricity. In turn, all major electronics and appliances are designed to operate with 120 volt electricity. However, in Europe, for example, the standard voltage is 220 volts, where all electronics and appliances are designed for 220 volt use.
     
    What does it all mean? Well; you can't simply pack up your existing electronics and appliances and take them overseas with you. Furthermore, certain electronics such as TVs operate with specific color formats to display the picture and these formats vary from country to country. Others items such as Blu-ray Players are only compatible with discs purchased in the same region as the player, which means that you cannot play European or Asian discs on your North American Blu-ray Player. It actually gets quite complicated, but that's exactly what we're here for - to simplify things for you.
     
    We specialize in the sales and shipment of 220 and 240 volt appliances, multisystem tvs, region-free blue-ray players and more.

  • Multisystem Electronics: What's The Difference?

    multisystem electronicsIn today's fast-paced world of communication and travel, we expect things to be as flexible and convenient as possible. We have portable battery backups for our mobile devices, we can store our data on the cloud for easy access, and we can pay for our groceries - or our tab at the coffee shop - with a simple swipe of our cell phone. If there's a product or service that makes our lives easier, faster or more productive, you can be sure that people will want it.
     
    With electronics being one of the biggest markets in the world, it's not really a surprise that consumers and businesses alike are interested in the newest, most capable and most complete devices that money can buy. While many people won't even utilize a third of their electronic's capabilities, there are many of us who frequently squeeze every last drop of performance and capability out of our devices.
     
    You might be familiar with the term "multisystem" and you may have never heard of it - but it's another one of those technologies that allows for maximum flexibility, compatibility and usability. Multisystem technology allows people to get the most from their home electronics or personal devices when traveling abroad or moving overseas, and here's how it works.
     
    The term multisystem, generally speaking, represents a device that's capable of working with multiple systems. For example, a Multisystem TV can work at different voltages, with different standard color systems, and varying tuner frequencies. In different countries, continents and regions of the world, there are different systems for the delivery of data, electricity and audio/video compatibility.. A TV purchased in North America is not compatible with the voltage used in Europe, nor is it compatible with the european color system. In order to use your North American TV in England, you'll need a voltage converter and a video converter - at minimum. However, with a multisystem TV, it's plug-and-play. The Multisystem TV can be used with any voltage and any color system, without the need for any type of external converters. In basic terms, the multusystem TV is a global TV.
     
    Multisystem electronics are not limited to just TVs. Blu-ray players, surround sound systems and even personal electronics or small appliances are available to consumers who want products that will work anywhere in the world.
     
    Additionally, there is a wide array of products not considered to be multisystem per say, but that feature dual-voltage technology to provide global compatibility. These kind of products include home appliances and personal electronics such as hair dryers, electric razors and curling irons. They're designed to work at any voltage and can be used anywhere in the world. Both multisystem electronics and dual-voltage products are very valuable to anyone who travels, lives abroad or is planning to move overseas in the near future. These products - as mentioned before - are plug-and-play. They're designed to work everywhere without the need for additional converters, wires, adapters and the like. They completely eliminate any issues or worries about foreign compatibility, allowing you to focus on more important things than "Why did my curling iron just start on fire!???"
     
    If you're someone who frequently goes overseas or travels abroad for long periods, you'll surely understand these struggles of international compatibility - or at least have experienced it at some point. There's nothing like arriving in a comfortable hotel room after a week of hiking in the Swiss Alps; until you decide to give your face a much-needed shave and literally melt the internals of your razor because it's not designed for the 220-volt electricity used in Switzerland. It can be a rather stressful learning lesson, but it doesn't have to be. Whether you've experienced these setbacks before or are just learning about them, multisystem electronics and dual-voltage electronics can eliminate the hassles.
     
    As specialists in multusystem electronics, dual voltage electronics and international relocation with over 35 years experience, 220 Electronics can help you eliminate the worries about using your electronics and/or appliances overseas. We carry a large selection of multisystem electronics, dual-voltage electronics, and home appliances designed for global use and 220 bolt use.
