    No, it won't be cost effective to ship it. The voltage and Hz (cycles) that the Philippines uses are different from the U.S. also, if that is where it is coming from.

    I agree over all cheaper to get one here, especially considering the loss when using a transformer , KDF is correct regarding the voltage, except U.S. and here are both 60Hz
