120 Volts vs. 110 Volts

Any device that says it runs on 110 volts can be plugged into a 120-volt outlet. The "120 volt" label is just a nominal figure; the actual voltage could be anywhere in the range of 110-125 volts, and modern electrical devices are built to tolerate the fluctuations.



Some heavy appliances—such as electric clothes dryers—require 240 volts of power. Outlets that deliver 240 volts are configured differently, so devices for 120-volt outlets can't plug in to them.
