Voltage


#1

Hi

Can anyone tell me what the voltage is in the DR? and what sort of adaptor I will need. Is it the same adaptor that I use when travelling to the US?

Only 10 days to go!! Im so excited!!. ;D

Thanks

110v I think, either way, the US style ‘universal’ travel adapter will do fine. Batteries will charge slower though!


#3

voltage in the dr is 110. Although resorts that cater to many europeans are often 220. Where exactly are you staying?


#4

Voltage is same as in US and in Canada. Be advised, that some outlets are only 2 pronged and not 3 pronged like the newer outlets. Its a good idea to take along a short extension cord or 2-3 pin adapter just in case.

If it works in the US, it should work in the DR, just so long as it’s not a three prong plug.

Hi

Thanks for all your replies, Iam off to Occidental Grand Flamenco Punta Cana in 10 days on a girlie holiday and must be able to use my hair dryer!! ;D. Sad I know, but these things are very important to us girlies!!.

I would expect that a 240volt hair dryer would be a bit anemic on 120volt power.


#8

well maybe you will be lucky… alot of the resorts now have a hair dryer mounted on the wall in the bathrooms

;)I will be staying at the Grand Flamenco at the end of the month. Can you give me the 411 when you return? It will be my first trip and I am going solo. I don’t know much about the area and would like some fresh info. Thanks.
