Voltage and frequency
You can use your electric appliances in the American Virgin Islands, if the standard voltage in your country is in between 110V and 127V (as in the US, Canada and most South American countries). Manufacturers take small deviations (plus or minus 5%) into account. If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 220V - 240V (as in the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia), you need a power converter in the American Virgin Islands. To be sure, check the label on the appliance. If it states 'INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz', it can be used in all countries of the world (like chargers for tablets/laptops, photo cameras, cell phones, toothbrushes).
If the frequency in the American Virgin Islands (60 Hz) differs from the one in your country, it is not advised to use your appliances, but you can try at your own risk. Be especially careful with moving, rotating and time related appliances like clocks and electric fan heaters.
