I like this version by Belkin, which is basically the same device (with a less irritating LED and 3 power +2 USB outlets)

Hey-O! Liberia RPCV 2010-2012. Congratulations! Liberia is a great country to serve in, and has AMAZING staff. The last time I went to do a short response service half of my luggage was coffee and food stuff. I think most of us brought a bunch of stuff we never used the first time. You can find most things in country.



I cant recommend that thing enough. I used it every time I was near electricity to power everything at once. I still use it in my house today. I also strongly encourage a kindle and try and pirate a bunch of books that you can share.


Computer is definitely nice to have for entertainment, but I never really used mine for work or project related things.

Linen clothes for work. Stuff that looks professional, but breathes.

Reach out if you have any other questions!

u/diatho · 5 pointsr/consulting

an external backup battery for your tablet/ phone for when you need to charge your phone but can't find a charger

a 3 to 1 power strip, this is great for when you can find an outlet and need to charge multiple things or when you find an outlet and someone else is using it. simply ask to plug your power strip in and share. this model also has USB

u/Geeenius · 3 pointsr/apple

Check out XtremeMac's InCharge Duo:

Or Griffin's PowerDock

You can get two of them for your iPhones and iPod Nano. Then get two iPad docks for your iPads, and then a Dock for your Shuffle. Power them all off a Belkin Mini Surge Protector:

Plug the two Dual Chargers and the iPod Shuffle adapter into the AC outlets, and the iPad Docks into the USB ports.

u/zeug666 · 3 pointsr/techsupport

Along those lines:

If an outlet isn't "working" plug in something to check. A working item, such as a lamp or a fan is a great indicator that the outlet is receiving power.

There are a variety of reasons that a particular outlet wouldn't be receiving power, so it helps to double check.

Always check the switch; power strip/surge protector, switched outlet, breaker, etc, etc - this goes with the thing about checking the power.

If the problem outlet isn't properly grounded, that may cause an issue (not an electrician).

OP could try another AC to USB adapter (commonly provided with smart phones). Pretty much any (powered) USB source should work to charge your device, which is why I carry one of these with my gadgets.

u/nickpickles · 3 pointsr/evergreen

This and some storage device/devices from here.

I'm not advocating you smoke a bunch of weed or any at all, but do want to keep you from losing grants/getting arrested/getting kicked out over silly outdated laws.

Other things you will need in school:

  • Cash

  • Sodastream if you like soda or carbonated water

  • Headphones

  • A nice pillow or two. A few things to not cheap out on ever, by Nickpickles: dental work, shoes, toothbrushes, pillows. In that order.

  • If you work out, a kettlebell or something small you can use in your room.

  • A mindset that you are living for nine months or longer in a small room, so keep your possessions minimal and organized. This impresses people you bring home, as well.

  • On the previous note: condoms. Don't fuck around around and catch crotch germs.

  • First aid kit. A good one as you probably don't have health insurance. Mine is a bit overkill, but everything here can be found for cheaper than cheap.

  • A surge protector. After having gear fried at Evergreen and two other places I've lived here, I have learned not to trust the combo that is PSE/old wiring. Keeping with the minimalist theme, these Belkin ones have worked fantastically for me, and they're good enough for Steve Wozniak.

    Things not to bring:

  • Huge shit. Really, you're gonna bring a fucking couch, two chairs, a coffeetable like ten shitty tapestries, a microwave, a Foreman grill, minifridge, foosball table, and other big fucking dumb shit that one of your other 3-5 roommates might also be bringing? Unless it's a huge TV just say no. If you require it, like a microwave, and no one brings one acquire it later.

  • Your high school yearbook. Seriously, this shit is dumb. The amount of times I went back to a girl's dorm room only to have to endure a 45 minute recounting of high school in pictoral form before even entering the grope stage was astounding. Yearbooks have blocked more play than rain delays.

  • Your drumset, huge amps, etc. Unless your whole dorm is a family-band together, this sucks for everyone else involved. Bonus fuck you points if you play a cover of Creep, do "ironic hip-hop covers", or play any song in Against Me's catalog.

  • Your boffing gear/other large dork shit. Know what's cool? D&D gamemaster dragon manuals store flat.

  • Your significant other that isn't enrolled in school. Oh cool, now our shitty cramped confines are more shitty and cramped for at least two months because face it, you'll probably be breaking up real quick. The latter part makes the final few weeks a real shitshow.

u/zupzupper · 3 pointsr/raspberry_pi

Couple ideas for you:

  • There's a Pyle 2 channel amp with a usb charger on it, looks like it does a lot of extra stuff.



  • You may want to consider a wall splitter that does USB power + Regular outlet. It's probably going to be the cheapest option.

ZOMG We Need this!

This because you can never have enough outlets and those extra USB plug ins

That's why I always carry

u/nobodytouch · 2 pointsr/Surface
u/fire_rice · 2 pointsr/travel

When I travelled several European/UK countries from Canada I charged my various devices with this power bar and 3 in 1 adapter

I have been extremely happy with them, since I can simultaneously charge all my devices at once and no worries about voltage issues/power surges since it has a surge protector. The usb ports are super handy since I only need to carry the various wires, and no wall attachments. It is also useful for charging phones for new foreign friends. The only drawback is the size. It isn't very heavy, but can be clunky to carry around. I found carrying all my wires, plugs and adapters in a zippered pouch was a very convenient solution.

The adapter is really down to personal choice, but I quite like how sleek and compact the Targus is. Most people I know recommend buying the cheapest adapter, since you will always lose them, but for me having a compact universal charger was worth the money. Bonus with this adapter is if you are just going out for the day and want to only bring your adapter and phone charger along it is a much easier to throw in your bag then a huge all in one square adapter

Just my 2 cents, but I have been very happy with my set up over the last 5 months travelling.

u/a_midgett · 2 pointsr/travel

Lots of good suggestions in here. A couple specifics from my trip:

  • This flashlight Tiny, rugged, and amazingly bright for just a single AA battery. Spendy, but worth it.
  • A mini surge protector to go with your travel adapter (kit). Share it in airports when there's only one wall socket.
  • An unlocked iPhone or Andriod smart phone. You'll have travel apps, wi-fi access for Tripadvisor and Wikitravel, digital guidebooks if you need them, and plenty of podcasts, music, and movies for those long bus rides. Oh yeah, it's a phone, too. Seriously, after my passport, this is the most important thing in my travel bag.
u/da4 · 2 pointsr/chicago

When I still flew on business regularly I carried one of these Belkins.

u/redfiche · 2 pointsr/apple

That for around $40 or this for $12. I chose the latter last time this was posted. Maybe it's not as elegant, but it's functional.

u/UnGermane · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

These look amazing. But they're over $20 after shipping, and you didn't mention a limit, so I'm going to assume that's way over.

This, on the other hand, was one of the first gifts anyone on this sub sent me, and it is fantastic. If someone else requests this, or if the winner happens to be an add-on item and you need a little extra something, get this, and do not feel bad about it for one minute.

u/the_dread · 1 pointr/travel

For packing in general, this thread on Flyertalk is great.

I took 3, as the eBags packing cubes come in 3. The biggest one held all of my clothes. The medium one has cords, chargers, adapters, etc. The small one has a pair of shoes. I don't have too much stuff, so if your stuff can't fit in all the cubes (more or less), just fiddle with it. Some people use one for dirty clothes. I just let my dirty clothes float around my bag and use it for padding and to take up irregular space.

Also, I forgot to include this in my other posts: Get an adapter for the EU sockets. If you charge lots of things (e.g. cellphone, laptop, iPad, traveling partner's stuff), you'll want a travel extension socket thing. I have this one and I love it.

u/Beaver-Believer · 1 pointr/electronics

I recently bought two of these for each side of the bedroom beside the bed:

They are awesome.

u/kanji_sasahara · 1 pointr/AskReddit

You don't need paperclips or thumbtacks, you can probably find it at printing centers around campus. A portable surge protector is probably a good idea
Better than an extension cable. Do you already have a smartphone? Since that will replace an alarm clock.

u/Vole182 · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

My wife and I travel international a couple times a year. Normally England, Australia or Japan.

We pack an HDMI cable, Belkin power strip, and power adapters.

And this power bar or strip

It pretty much covers all of our bases.

u/MahDarling · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Definitely purchase the seeds on your wish list!

I want the travel charger for both USB ports and plugs! that's on my "1. Practical" list.

twinsies ! (My autocorrect keeps wanting to say twin dies D:)

u/adelope · 1 pointr/vita

The Vita charger is a standard USB charger, you can buy it for like $2, but I suggest you upgrade to a better charger like this.

The problem is the USB cable which is proprietary and isn't necessary compatible with every charger, there is a small pin on the cable, so you may need to scratch it a little bit. The cable itself is not cheap either. The original cable goes for $10. You can get OEM cable for $2 example. IMO, since you are only going to use the cable for charging, don't overpay.

u/jmnugent · 1 pointr/applehelp

> "if there was some lesser-known secret I hadn't heard of or some crazy trick to fix it or something."


Speaking as someone who's worked in the IT industry for 20+ years... the "secret" really is simple (for pretty much all electronic devices)

1.) Make sure you have good, clean, reliable power (IE = use a surge-protector or battery backup). Even a single time of plugging your power-cord into a "dirty" outlet can damage it. You may consider a small/portable surge protector such as this Belkin one.

2.) Treat your cables gently. Never pull/yank on them. Always pull using the base of the plug (never pull on the cable itself).

Also.. never fold/tightly wrap cables. Any extreme bending (especially at critical junction points, like where the cables meets the square/brick) can results in shorts or internal wire breakage.

u/redsnappa · 1 pointr/geek

Alternatively, this would do the trick too

u/winnar72 · 1 pointr/shutupandtakemymoney
u/kickstand · 1 pointr/travel

Be careful about using a splitter. The splitter itself has to be 220-compatible.

For example, I have this Belkin travel power splitter but it cannot be used outside North America.

EDIT: What I have is a bunch of these travel adpaters. They are not particularly small, but they are cheap. They will work with any device that is 120/220 compatible, like most chargers for electronics (but probably not your alarm clock radio).

u/icanseestars · 1 pointr/gadgets

I've looked at this one:

Interesting but the reviews say it lacks power to charge 2 USB devices at once.

And I've looked at this one:

Reviews seem to indicate the possibility of a fire if you're trying to charge more than one device and it lacks the 110v power plugs.

u/crmaki · 1 pointr/gadgets

Looks like Amazon has a better price.

u/markseesred · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

I always bring a 3 outlet with 2 usb ports with me when I travel.

Smiles everywhere.

Belkin Mini Surge Protector/Dual USB Charger.

Especially useful for coffeeshops and airports where there are few plugs but everyone wants to charge up.
