I'm sending an Aussie drill and grinder 240v to the Philippines. Do I need to buy a power converter from 110v to 240v to run power tools safely?
Electricity in the Philippines runs between 220V, so your power tools might me slightly underpowered but not by much. What I would highly recommend though is a surge protector since my experience is that power varies more than other places there, in both voltage and frequency. Officially the power is 220V at 60 Hz in the Philipines but I've gotten 210 to 230V input.
