Mains Voltage in Canada & Alaska

  esbe 14:23 31 Aug 2009

We're off to Canada & Alaska shortly & I just wondered if my UK bought netbook AC Adapter & Digital camera AC battery chargers will work ok over there.

I've bought a worldwide Socket adapter, do I need a mains adapter as well?

USA and Canada both use 120V flat pin plugs

Just check voltage input on the "AC bricks" for your devices they should state input 110v -240v AC
