Voltage Transformers for Canada

voltage transformers for canadaCanada is a large, beautiful and exciting country that attracts millions of foreigners each year. Tourists from all over the world visit Canada to enjoy and explore the larger cities as well as the vast expanses of nature. Canada is also a popular destination for many foreigners to live long-term while studying or working due to their relaxed and welcoming foreign policies. If you're planning on studying, working or living long-term in Canada, you'll want to be sure that you're prepared - this includes knowing how to properly use your electronics and personal devices.
 
Canada uses 120 volt electricity which is much lower than the 220/240 volt electricity used in Europe. The voltage in Canada is not compatible with electronic devices from 220/240 volt countries because it's much lower and can't sufficiently power 220 volt devices. Furthermore, attempting to use 220 or 240 volt electronics with 120 volt electricity can result in damaged devices, electrical shock, or even a fire. The best way to safely utilize your 220 volt electronics or appliances is by purchasing a voltage transformer.
 
Voltage transformers are devices that change the electrical voltage from 220/240 volts down to 120 volts, or from 120 volts up to 220/240 volts. They are convenient, safe to use, efficient, and reasonably affordable. You can use a voltage transformer for Canada to power personal devices that you decide to take along such as curling irons, electric razors, hair dryers, heating blankets and more. You can also use a voltage converter to power major appliances like washers & dryers, refrigerators, blenders and coffee makers, electric ranges, freezers and more. Voltage converters are available in a variety of sizes which are defined by their wattage. For using a TV and Blu-ray Player, a 1,000 watt voltage converter would be sufficient. However, for larger appliances or multiple appliances, a transformer up to 5,000 watts may be necessary. It's important to check your manufacturer's label on your devices to determine their operating voltage and then purchase a transformer with a minimum of 1.5 times the wattage of your electronics. The extra wattage helps to ensure safety and avoid damage in the event of an electrical surge or heavy use for extended periods.
 
Not all voltage transformers for Canada are created equal. There are many varieties and brands to choose from and some are definitely better made than others. If you're looking for something that will last, it's best to spend a bit more and purchase something from a reputable retailer who is experienced in dealing with voltage converters and international electronics use.
