Travel Adapters

A travel adapter has become an essential for using electronic devices when you travel. If the voltage or plug type differs from those within your country then you will need an adapter. Power outlets have different shapes in different parts of the world, so you will need an adapter to convert the shape of your home plug types to the shape of the outlets in the region of the world you're travelling to.

There are many types of plugs used across the world. For example a European plug will typically be a Type C, whereas a US plug type will be a Type A. However in Asia you can find that there is a mix of plug types being used.
