Help: Will US appliances work in Denmark?

Post Posted: Fri Apr 15, 2016 9:51 am

Hello, I am moving to Denmark in a month. I have lived 6 years in the US and therefore I have a bunch of US appliances that I need to decide if to take with me or not.

Do you have any idea which ones would work and which ones would not?
I was thinking about buying some adapters for 120/220V but of course I need to think about the Watts as well, which is really what I am after, i.e. hair dryer will probably best to buy it again in Denmark, but some kitchen appliances might be better to take them.

Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Some appliances will work and some wont. So the answer is not that simple. First of all in Denmark we use 220 volt vs 110 volt in the US. So appliances running on 110 volt in US wont work in Denmark. If you have appliances that work on batteries which you are charging from time to time these might work and you can charge them. But be careful when charging! Could go bad.

Some appliances has a 110/220 volt switch. Switch to 220 and it will work in Denmark/Europe.

All the best
