• Question on electricity phase

    From Michael Balcos@1:2320/100 to All on Fri Feb 24 21:13:25 2017

    I couldn't find a more appropriate message area for this question. If this is off-topic, please forgive me.

    I have 2 surge suppressors that are rated 220VAC at 50hz. I am using these 2
    in Singapore. I plan to bring these surge suppressors to my home, the Philippines. The electricity in the Philippines is also 220VAC, but the phase is 60hz. My question is: can I still use these surge suppressors in the Philippines? And can they still provide protection in the Philippines? These surge suppressors are not special and not expensive. But I would love to be able to still use these in the Philippines.
