Instructables prize power question Answered
So I have this burning question.
If I were ever to win a big prize in Instructables contest that included an power appliance, what should I do if it only works in US?
Because here in Europe, we have 230V 50Hz power and you guys over there have 120V 60Hz power.
Some time ago, my girlfriend won a vacuum sealer and the thing is just sitting in its box because we can not use it. The only solution would be a separate converter which costs a lot. And for the bigger stuff it would cost even more!
My Worx Semi-Automatic screwdriver works just fine over here (110-230V)
My suggestion for the Instructables personnel is that with growing numbers of creators overseas, the prize power problem should somehow be handled (if it is even possible)
