Travel Iron Buying Guide

Dual Voltage

It is certainly worth explaining the meaning of dual voltage when it comes to buying a travel iron. The term also applies to other electrical appliances such as hair driers and kettles.

Dual voltage simply means it will work on two different voltages. The reason that is required as different countries throughout the world use different voltage ratings in their main power supplies.

  1. The UK and Ireland uses 230-240 Volts
  2. Most countries(Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa, and others) use 110 Volts
