quick question - do I need a power converter

We're leaving tomorrow morning (can't wait). We're from the US - do we need a power converter for our electronics?

Thanks.

No, they use 110 volts with the same plugs as we do.

The islands occasionally have power outages. It's not a bad idea to take a small surge protector for items that you recharge. I had an electric shaver that was ruined in the BVI a few yrs ago when I was re-charging it.

Enjoy your trip, alashas http://www.youtube.com/user/honeymoon2
