The standard voltage is divided into 100V - 127V and 220V - 240V. If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100 V - 127 V, you can't use your electric devices if you go to a country with 220V - 240V of standard voltage.

 

(Notice: check the note at the back of your electric device, if it says "100 - 240V, 50/60Hz", it will work in any country with right plug.) In this case, you should buy a voltage adapter. Similarly, you need a plug adapter if you travel in a country which use different plug type with your country.
