Electrical Equipment / battery tools / Grill!!
My family and I are moving back to Ireland imminently. Last minute planning here! could some advise of the following:
- will my US grill be ok to use in Ireland? i think i heard people say that propane tank fittings are different in ireland and thus makes no sense to bring a US one back to ireland? has anyone any experience or is there any type of adaptor device to transition to Ireland?
- is there any value in bring back any type of small US electrical equipment? i know computers can be changed/dual use 110v-240v so things like that might be ok...but what about just very small kitchen electrics that might be useful (small oven / coffee machine etc etc?) - i am not talking about fridges etc etc.
- garden tools powered by battery...saws/edge clippers/shrub clippers type thing...anyone any experience of bringing those things to ireland and being able to charge them whilst there?
thanks for any advice anyone can offer..
you can get a US to Ireland power adapter. Theyre bulky and expensive, but do work for most things that need them. I used one years ago for a stereo system. My opinion though, is it's just easier to sell/rebuy in the long term.
Haven't had the grill question below. That's one I'll have to look into further.

Yeah, it seems like the propane connections are different from Ireland to US. It looks like converters are available, either on the BBQ itself, and/or on the tanks. It probably needs some research before forking out for shipping costs.
