Hi nilesh, i believe the voltage in the US is 110v. Personally i wouldn't mess with voltage and would only use the correct voltage for my country.. Also the plug in the US are 2 pin, are they the same in Dubai??. For safety sake i wouldn't do it. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night!!. I know there are voltage converters available but it seem a lot of hassle and expense. Could you not order from an Amazon or Ebay a bit closer to home. It would be cheaper and safer...
PS.. I know i'm not from the US(obviously!!) but i'm sure our American friends would agree. As always though, i do stand corrected.... Ian
