I'm going to Europe (Spain, Italy, Greece) in a few days and I need to know how to convert 240 volt (50Hz) power to 110 volts (60Hz) power without frying anything.

@hudson155,
Oh my. Such an easy question, and I'm hopelessly out of date. When I was assigned to Germany in the late '60s, the answer was to go to the PX and buy a converter box. I didn't know how they worked, and didnt' need to. They worked. I'm pretty sure the technology hasn't been lost.

Tried googling 'electrical converter boxes'? Or try the same at Amazon.

They still make them. If you're going to use electronics, like a computer, you might want to go to a computer store to get a fairly high-quality one.
