Hi Tim,

Argentina's power is 220 unlike the 110 of the US. You can buy the converter in any electronics shop or Ferreteria, that is hardware store...

Hope I've been of help. Bob

go to the Ferreteria.

I was lucky becuase Argentina has the same connection socket and voltage as Australia, but i needed to go to the Ferreteria for connections for Cuba and Colombia.

Tim in argentina we use "I" and "C" types from de page above

220v 50Hz for electric motors....

You broadband conexion in most places, and very affordable cyber cafes , where ever you go.

For aditional inquiers, contact me.

Have a nice trip
