When traveling internationally, one thing to include in your pre-departure checklist is to confirm what power outlets that country uses and what is the voltage of the current. The World Standards website is a great online resource which details on a country by country basis everything you need to know. As I travel quite a bit internationally, I purchased the Poweradd International Travel Charger Power and AC Adapter.
This is a great item to travel with because it comes with 5 international adaptors (UK, USA, Australia, Europe and Japan) which means I’m pretty much covered almost anywhere that I travel in the world. There is no need to run out at the last minute to find the appropriate adaptor for the country that I’m visiting.
This adaptor has two AC outlets, two USB ports and one embedded micro USB charging cable. As I usually travel with my iPad, iPhone, DLSR Camera and a portable battery pack for my phone I can charge all of these items in one which is especially convenient in some older hotels with few power outlets. I no longer have to worry about forgetting my camera battery in the hotel bathroom when I check out or feel guilty for using all of the outlets in my hotel room and leaving none available for my travel companion. Additionally, I’m able to save space in my luggage my limiting the number of additional chargers that I need to pack.
Weighing only 7oz. and measuring 8.5 x 5.1 x 2.6 in. this item is compact for all that it offers and can easily be packed in your carry-on bag. You can be the hero at the airport when you plug this into one of the scare power outlets and let other passengers share your outlet and who doesn’t love a hero?
