Don't Forget To Pack Your Voltage Converter For Your Next Overseas Trip



So you're planning to take a trip overseas? You have taken a look at your devices and came to the conclusion that they are single voltage? In order for you to use your electronic devices in a country that is not part of the American continent, you will need a voltage converter. If your electronic device is a dual voltage, you will only need a plug adapter. Voltage converters are generally way more powerful than your dual voltage devices. 

Many converters can be heavier and larger than your regular plug adapters. People who are looking to purchase voltage converters are typically expecting to be away for an extended amount of time, or they are permanently moving away. The voltage converter will certainly come in handy when you are taking those precious electronic devices that you cannot make it without.  

What's The Voltage Difference?
North America uses voltage of 110v. Other countries, or at least most of them, uses a voltage of 220v. Most of the countries will support voltage of 100v to 125v or 210v to 230v. You will use a voltage converter because if your voltage is 110 it will be converted to 220.
If your voltage is 220 it will be converted to 110. Your converter will also have the plug on the end. If you are confused on what kind of voltage converter to buy, you can never go wrong with a converter that is of a higher wattage. The problem will be when you purchase a converter with not enough wattage. Also remember that your different devices will all have different needs. For your bigger items, you will need a more powerful converter.

If you want to step your voltage up or step your voltage down, you will more than likely always choose the right converter. You can check the voltage requirements on the electronic device. Make sure you check the requirements and adhere to them. 

If you have frequent flyer miles or you travel on the regular, buy the voltage converter so you can easily use your electronic devices. You can get fantastic deals on voltage converters by visiting our site. Contact us with questions or concerns about choosing the best voltage converter.

Region Free DVD Players: What They Are and the Benefits of Purchasing One for Your Home



What many people are not aware of is the fact that each country or region of countries has a numerical code for DVD players. This code stops DVD players from playing DVDs from a different country or region. This would be why many individuals are frustrated when they are unable to play a DVD from another country on their DVD player. The region code is preventing them from doing so. The region coding of DVDs and DVD players is meant to prevent people from purchasing and watching movies from another country that has not yet released in their country, or that may still even be in the theaters where they are from. However, with more and more films having global releases, the region coding of DVDs now seems antiquated.

Luckily, there are now DVD players that allow owners to view DVDs with any region code in their home. This device is known as a region free DVD player. If you have been frustrated by the fact that you have been unable to play DVDs from other regions in your home, here are just a few of the many reasons why you should consider purchasing a region free DVD player.

Versatility
As was previously alluded to, region free DVD players are much more versatile than the single region alternative. These devices allow users who are global film connoisseurs to watch movies from anywhere in the world on a single device. These DVD players are also formatted to play DVDs of various video standards such as NTSC, PAL, and SECAM. This can be extremely beneficial for people with friends or relatives in other countries as this can allow them to exchange movies with these individuals without having to worry about playability issues.

Cost Advantage
Not only are region free DVD players versatile, but they are extremely cost effective. For many years, individuals who wanted to be able to watch films from other countries had to purchase multiple DVD players, otherwise their only option was to watch these films illegally online. Region free DVD players allow individuals to buy and watch whatever DVDs they want to legally.

The advent of region free DVD players makes watching movies easier for the global film connoisseur. If you are still not convinced of the benefits of region free DVDs, however, these are just a few of the many benefits they provide. Contact us to find out more about the benefits of purchasing a region free DVD player for your home.

An OREI PAL to NTSC Video Converter for using American TV Overseas

Are you planning to visit or relocate overseas and want to bring your American TV along with you? Since video is broadcast in various formats in different countries, be sure to check a World Television Signal Guide to see whether your TV will be compatible with the standard used in your destination country.

While North American televisions are made to receive broadcasts in the NTSC format, the majority of European countries, India, China and many others use the PAL standard. Making this situation even more confusing is SECAM, the third major broadcast standard, which is used in France, Russia and a number of other countries.
If your television is not compatible with the standard used in the country where you will be going, take heart. An OREI PAL to NTSC video converter for American TV overseas will let you watch local programming on your American equipment with no problem.

OREI converters are also capable of converting broadcasts from SECAM format to NTSC. If you are traveling to multiple countries with differing standards, your OREI converter will automatically detect the format of input signals and convert them to NTSC. All converters include a 100-240V Universal Power Adapter with Standard US Plug, so your converter will always work with the local electrical supply.

The OREI XD-990 PAL to NTSC Video Converter, and OREI XD-1090 PAL to NTSC HDMI Scaler Video Converter both deliver crystal clear, super stable pictures with superior color separation.

The OREI XD-1090 Video Converter also includes REIO technology, which optimizes the video process for a more precise, vivid and jitter free image. This is perfect for action scenes and fast moving video.

If you also need an Analog TV Tuner for the incoming PAL format, the OREI XD-1190 PAL to NTSC HDMI Scaler Video Converter has this ability built right in. This allows you to tune into local PAL and SECAM channels without the need for a cable box or satellite receiver.

If you are planning to travel or relocate overseas and want to make sure your electronics will work wherever you go, contact us at Bombay Electronics. We specialize in region free electronic and electrical products to make your travels easier and less stressful.

Tips for Choosing the Best Travel Adapters



One of the luxuries that goes along with vacationing in the United States (US) is that you likely won't have to use travel adapters.  After all, almost all electronic devices plug into the same type of outlets here in the US. But what about when you go on vacation to Paris? 

If you find yourself traveling abroad, you're going to need travel adapters. Fortunately, though, these adapters are easy to purchase and easy to use.

Tips for Choosing a Travel Adapter
Before you make your long trip overseas, make sure you call the hotel that you're going to be staying in, or the landlord of the home or condo that you're renting, and ask about the electrical outlets. Once you identify the types of outlets that you'll be plugging your electronic devices in, you can then purchase the right type of adapter.
If for some reason you can't contact the hotel or landlord, you can always reference the Kropla World Electric Guide to determine the electrical specifications of the country you're going to travel to. Remember, if you're traveling to more than one country, you might need to purchase different adapters for each country.

Always keep in mind that some countries don't have any type of power surge protection built into their electrical systems. Because of this, it's always best to purchase travel adapters that come with a converter/transformer; this will help protect your electronic devices from receiving to much power at any given time.

Your trip overseas should be one that you enjoy, and to accomplish this, you'll likely want to take your smartphone and laptop at the very least.  Just make sure that you have the right types of travel adapters for them, and also keep in mind that we are here to meet all of your travel adapter needs.
