Our wax melters are equipped with an AS/NZS 3112 Australian and New Zealand standard 220V AC power plug. If you are based in Canada or the USA or in a country that operates at different voltage standards to the above, please note that incompatibilities may occur with overseas plug converters/transformers.
An adapter that plugs into a standard 220-volt receptacle and allows you to use a 110-volt plug costs about $10-$30 In technical terms, it provides a NEMA 5-15P outlet, which is a three-pin grounded outlet rated for 15 amps. It has an internal fuse that trips when the current exceeds 15 amps, so you don't need to change the circuit breaker. It doesn't have ground fault protection, however, so you shouldn't use it in a location in which a GFCI is required, such as the laundry room. Commonly called a gas range adapter, it's an easy and effective way to convert a 220V receptacle for use as a 110V outlet when the outlet is behind a range and safely out of the way of moisture
