Voltage

No homogeneous electric network

Different voltages are used within the same country. So perhaps in one region one voltage is used, and in another region of the same country, another voltage is used. You will have to take extreme care about this. Before plugin any electric device, you should check your device voltage and you must ask at local place the voltage used in the electric network. If you move to different city, you should ask again about this. In some countries voltages varies in regions, even, in nearby cities. Plugin electric devices to different voltage network could injury an accident. In futher reading section of this page you have usefull links for undertanding the hazards involved.

Plugs Type

Some connectors used in both countries

Some connectors are used in both countries. Perhaps you need to get advices about what connectors are used exactly in the city, region were are you going to. At third world countries its common not to have a standard plug system all over the country. Anyway, as a rule of thumb, it will be easy to get adapters to different plug systems used within the country.

Hertz

No equal hertz

This is not a big issue. Unless you are using an electric alarm clock and you have to wake up early!. Explanation: Some alarm clocks (not the battery powered ones, the ones that you have to plug to the wall outlet) uses the frequency of electricity to measure time. So, time shifts could be experimented. For more information about alarm clocks hertz shift click here. Apart this issue, almost every home electronic device works perfectly with different hertz.
