Our Oral-B electric toothbrushes all come with region specific battery chargers. To use them abroad you may need a voltage converter, plug adapter, or both as it depends on the country you are traveling to.
Follow these simple steps to find out if you can use your toothbrush abroad:
A plug adapter allows a dual-voltage appliance from one country to be plugged into the wall outlet of another country. They do not convert electricity.
A voltage converter is an electric power conversion device used to change the electrical output of a power source. You can find plug adapters & voltage converters at most electronics or travel stores. Oral-B does not make either.
If your charger is a USA 110v you can purchase an Oral-B 220v charger which can be used overseas, instead of using a voltage converter. The charger will work in most European countries that have the two round plug ends. We also recommend purchasing a plug adapter in case you visit a country that has a different plug style such as the UK.

VERY IMPORTANT: The voltage rating of the charger and the voltage in the outlet have to be the same in order to use the product without damaging it.
If the charger voltage and the country outlet voltage match, but the plug is a different shape (doesn't fit the socket), they can use a plug adapter. These can be purchased at stores like Best Buy, online or in small electronics stores.
If the charger voltage and the country voltage DO NOT match, there might be a couple options:
** Recommend that if a consumer is travelling they are much better off purchasing the European equivalent chargers which we sell.
