Travel Adapters

We recently tried out several of the best travel adapters on our journeys around the world. These are our favorite models so far.

Countries with ties to Europe use 230 volt, 50 cycle power plugs and sockets. While many countries use the same 230 volt systems, there are a variety of different connectors used. Difficulty arises when moving an electrical device with a unique plug to another country with a different socket. An electric power adapter sometimes called a travel plug, may enable a plug from one region to use a foreign socket in another region. When traveling to and from continents that use 120 volt 60 cycle power, using a travel adapter is a safety hazard, check on the list of voltage by country.
