    110v appliances in Thailand

    Have an inside/outside temperature gauge which plugs in to power as well as having battery back up.

    It has 110v plug and that steps it down to 5v for the appliance.

    Do I need a converter to step it down to 110v?

    If so, where would I buy one (in Phuket) and what would I ask for?

    ^ not sure of the Thai word for miracle 55

    You'll definitely need a convertor. Not sure where you'd get one with the right plugs.
    Electrical bits and pieces shop at some of the big malls... Ama .... Something... porn (name escapes me) would be worth a go.

    Not just a flat pin plug then? 5v dc is common for charging mobile phones so if you know the polarity (+ -) couldn't you find a cheap local charger and adapt!

    Amorn sell step-down transformers, pretty cheap for small wattage units.

    Read the power supply writing, you may find it is 'Switching', I know most if not all of the stuff I have will work on 110 or 240.

    ^ would that be a problem with LOS being 220V?
    Most of the 240V stuff i took from Oz was ok but not all.

    I don't think that is what he meant, he wants to use a 110v device on a 240v circuit.
