    Question about Voltage/Electronics

    Does anyone know what the voltage used in American Appliances is? I ask because I want to buy a camera from there, but am only doing so because I'm going to Japan and apparently Japanese/American electronics are compatible (I don't want to buy a transformer - I already have one to use in Australia so it's not a worry buying from overseas). Anyway, I just don't want to pay hundreds of dollars and then have it blow up.

    Thanks for any help.

    I believe it is 110/120v in the USA and 220/240 in Australia.

    Yeah I've just found that out.

    Now my next question. Japan is 100v, but they use the same plug; is that a problem? I read that appliances are compatible but will have less power. But if I was using it to charge the camera for example, would that still work?

    Sorry but I'm a real nuffy when it comes to this kind of stuff.

    I'm fairly sure it'd still work, but with less power as you said.
