 Damage generally occurs from excess heating caused by too much current in a device. For an appliance that converts electric energy directly to heat, such as a hair dryer, this occurs when excess voltage is applied. So don't connect a 120-V device to a 240-V circuit. To be safe, use the recommended voltage for an appliance.
