Finding Watts or Amps: For Buying a Voltage Converter or Transformer
In order to work, your electric equipment consumes a certain amount of, watts, or amps. The amount of electricity it consumes depends on the type of item you’re using. For example, a radio may only need 25 watts to work, while a hair dryer might need almost 1500! In the case of the hair dryer, it creates a lot of heat, so typically electric items that generate heat will use more electricity, which means their wattage consumption is higher, like a microwave or even a toaster.
