Electricity and Electronics

The electrical current in Turkey is 220 volts, 50 cycles alternating current (AC). If you're going to be using U.S. appliances, make sure that you have a voltage converter and an adapter, which allows you to plug into wall outlets; in Turkey these take European-type plugs, with two or three round prongs.

Most laptop, tablet, camera, and mobile phone chargers, and some other small appliances are dual voltage (i.e., they operate equally well on 110 and 220 volts) and so require only an adapter. Always check labels and manufacturer instructions to be sure, though. Don't use 110-volt outlets marked "for shavers only" for high-wattage appliances such as hair dryers.

Contacts Information on telephone codes and dialing instructions, as well as time zones and electrical plugs around the world is available here.
