Thailand is 220V/50Hz.However, all of my portable electronics have power supplies which automatically adjust (or whatever) to various voltage combinations. For instance, my trusty Macbook Pro is 100-240V/50-60Hz, which I can verify by simply looking at the power supply.More likely than not, the bigger problem will be the plug fitting - Thailand uses this funny 2-plug thing, but again, most places use electrical outlets that fit standard North American 2-plug shaped plugs (sorry for my lack of technical jargon), so again, my trusty Macbook Pro can plug straight into the wall. The only cath is that rarely have I seen the third "ground" hole on these electrical outlets.As a fellow Canadian who makes semi-annual trips to Thailand, I can tell you not to worry about it. Most of your stuff will work, and even if your plug doesn't fit the hole in the wall, the hotel people can hook you up.- Martin
