Every hair dryer in the store is 1875 Watts but all the travel plug/wattage adapters only go up to 1

I'm going to England, and got an adapter to use my hair straightener and dryer, but the adapter says it only accepts wattages up to 1600. But every hair dryer I've seen is 1875 watts. Do I need to buy an adapter for higher wattages or is it better to search for a dryer with a lower wattage (do they work as well?)?

It is about the same, but the higher wattage hair dryer should dry your hair faster, so get a higher wattage adapter, or buy a dryer there.

I honestly don't think you'll see much of a difference with a lower wattage hairdryer, but if you want to stick with the one you have, you do need to get a higher wattage adapter.

Just don't use the highest drying temperature and your wattage will stay below 1600.

You don't say where you are from but please be aware that the nominal supply voltage in the UK is 220volts. Hope you have a great trip ;)
