They do work if they're mark IV or later and, given that ghd's aren't know for their durability, I reckon most people who use them regularly will own a set of mark IVs.

Because they won't power up with the US 110v current, they need 220 or thereabouts, unless they're dual voltage.

The MK4 and above GHDs most definitely work, like others have said if you own a pair that aren't MK4 you must be one of the very lucky people whos GHDs have lasted all this time!

My old mark 4 GHD's worked but kept cutting off. My mum treated me to some new purple GHD's & they're fine.
