Do not plug a 120V device directly into a 220V wall socket, even if the plug shape and size are identical. Although goods sold in the U.S. but available around the world sometimes accommodate 220V voltages — iPods, for example — other devices can be destroyed by such high voltages. When in doubt, use a converter.

Can you run 110v on 240V?

You can plug a 240v to 110v transformer into a standard 240v pocket socket. The transformer drops the voltage down to 110v, so it is safer. This also means you don’t have to use circuit breakers. If a power tool is not available in 240v, you can still use it at home.
