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

si

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.
