Everything but superconductors do.

I have some light bulbs rated for 120 volts only.

They draw 1 amp on a 20 amp circuit.

If I put one of those in use in Singapore, the higher voltage - that's the one that is pushed - would destroy it immediately.

Chargers in different countries have different plugs for the wall and can accommodate different input voltages.

But the standard 5 volts output is what makes it good for charging micro usb devices.
