Default 110v or 220?

We will be staying in Buenos Aires and Santiago, before and after our cruise next month. Do we need to bring an electricity converter (as we need to do in Europe) with us to use our chargers for our cell phone and camera batteries

Here is a link to a guide:

Some of the hotels have a 110 volt outlet in the bathroom. Also many appliances will automatically adapt. For example, both my computer and battery charger will automatically adapt to differences in voltage and all I ever carry are plug adaptors.

Both Argentina and Chile are 220 volts. My laptop and camera battery charger accept either 110 or 220, other items need a transformer.

What about your phone, doesn't that work as well? I leave everything else at home!

Definitly both countries are 220v. I know because I live in Montevideo, Uruguay. In the neighborhood let's say. If I were you I'd bring a converter. They are not that heavy and you could avoid a problem.
