/// Getting a Charge in Europe

June 26, 2013  |  All Things Digital

Q: Is there a laptop or an Internet-capable Wi-Fi tablet sold in the U.S. that has compatibility with the European electrical system? A: In my experience, most major brands of laptops and tablets sold in the U.S. also work on the standard European electrical systems without the need for a power converter. I have charged a U.S.-bought iPad in several European countries. You will likely need an adapter for the prongs on the charger plug and you should double check the label on the charger or the device itself to make sure it can handle 110 to 240 volts and both 50 and 60 Hz. Q: I just had to swap out a three-month-old Toshiba Portege z935 laptop because the screen cracked despite being carried in a sleeve and padded backpack.
