you would think in this modern world that you wouldnt have any problems using your electrical items in other countries.
most you dont have any problems at all although i thought i better check mine to see if all are compatable in the US.so i look at each:

digital camera charger YES OK
ipod charger YES OK
phone charger YES OK
electric razor charger YES OK
electric hair clippers ERM NO (aaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh)

i only bought them 4 months ago and as i cut my hair as short as possible every 3 days i thought seeings as they are shower proof and lightweight and small they would be great.but now they aint worth **** to me abroad.
so its either buy some abroad and bin them after or spend a fortune on expensive razor blades and whack the lot off every 4 days.

Or would the hair removal stuff women use work?

The hair removal stuff only works on women with no more than 3 or 4 microscopic hairs to their name. Seriously, I don't know of anyone who claims that stuff does a good job. It smells nasty and can remove 30-year-old laquer with its funes alone. I wouldn't suggest it - you'll end up needing a razor anyway.

Can't you buy an adapter, though? It'll be cheaper in the end and you'll still have all the convenience and satisfaction you're becme accustomed to (can you tell I write advertising for a living ?)
