Voltage converter needed in Peru?

In Peru the standard voltage is 220 V and the frequency is 60 Hz. You can use your electric appliances in Peru, because the standard voltage (220 V) is (more or less) the same as in Austria (230 V). Manufacturers take these small deviations into account. So you don't need a voltage converter in Peru, when living in Austria.

The frequency in Peru (60 Hz) differs from the frequency in Austria (50 Hz). It is not advised to use your appliances, but you could (at your own risk) try for a short time. Be especially careful with moving, rotating and time related appliances like clocks, shavers and electric fan heaters.

To be sure, check the label on the appliance. Some appliances never need a converter. If the label states 'INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz' the appliance can be used in all countries in the world. This is common for chargers of tablets/laptops, photo cameras, cell phones, toothbrushes, etc.
