Lighting and voltage
I live in the Philippines and I'm currently visiting my family in the US. I have a huge plan on how to remodel my room when I get back home, this plan involves installing new lighting fixtures, but I'm running into a problem. The ceiling lamps I want to purchase over here for use in the Philippines are on the American standard. What I mean is, they're made for the American voltage setting. Normally, appliances from the US need to be plugged into a converter to reduce the voltage down to 120 (otherwise, the appliance will die). I'm not sure if this will be a problem for a lighting fixture, and if so, how to solve it. Any one have any idea? I'm not familiar with any voltage adapter for lighting fixtures but it could be just that i don't know of any. I understand there's a similar problem with appliances bought in the US for use in Europe (since there's a voltage irregularity there also), so similar solutions will probably be applicable. Thanks in advance.
