In country Laos is voltage 230 V and the voltage frequency is 50 Hz. If the voltage in your country is between 220V - 250V (as is in the Europe, Australia and most of Asia) you can use your equipment. If your devices are only made for 100V - 127V (as is in the US, Canada and most South American countries) you cannot use them and you will need a voltage converter or a voltage converter with a type A, B, C, E or F adapter. If the voltage frequency in your country is different from Laos (230 V), some devices may not work properly.

Check the markings on the device before traveling. Each electrical device has a label (often on the charger) stating at which volt range and frequency it works - example “INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz”. If this range is also in the target country, you do not need a voltage converter, just check the type of socket / plug. More information about the voltage converter can be found here.
