I've been frustrated in years past when I've purchased a dual voltage blow dryer, only to have it only run at the low speed setting and heat when I travel to Europe and run it at 240 (or whatever the voltage is). So, this trip I've bought a 2000 watt converter with adaptor plugs that SAYS that it will convert my 2000 watt blow dryer and 50 watt flat iron to the local voltage and autosense the right wattage.
Has anyone really achieved this true speed with a converter? I also have very expensive hair appliances and don't want to ruin them. Normally I wouldn't care a whit about this, but we're going to three very important events--two of which are black tie--and I really want to look my best! The big events are in Monte Carlo, but we're also going to Italy and France.
I know this sounds trivial, but honestly, I've searched everywhere for answers and there's only speculation, not facts and I'm hoping someone on this board has been obsessed by this and has found the solution!
