In the United States, the Type A (two-prong) is found in older houses. You almost never see them in hotels. Maybe in older hotels. Anything reasonably modern will have the three-prong (type B). The third prong is just for grounding. Any appliance that has two prongs will fit into the three-prong socket.

It's really more of a nuiscance for Americans than for travelers. Most of your modern US electronics such as laptops will be three-prong. So if I (an American) happen to stay in an old bed and breakfast with type A sockets only, my laptop won't plug into the wall. (well, I have an adapter for that, so not really)

As an international traveler, if you get one of those cheap generic international adapters, you'll be fine. I have one in front of me, it fits into any US socket.

More about the plugs:

u/xybrad · 5 pointsr/Frugal

There are two concerns when using electricity abroad:

  1. Plug type. The outlets and plugs are physically different in other countries. While the US uses two vertical parallel prongs and an optional round ground pin below, most of Europe and Asia, including South Korea, uses two round prongs.

  2. Voltage. The US supplies 110V electricity. South Korea supplies 220V. Many common small devices like your razor or phone charger will accept either, but check the plug or device to be sure. If it says 110-240V, you'll be fine anywhere. If it's only 110 or 120V, you'll need a voltage converter when traveling to 220V countries.

    Either way, Amazon is your friend. If all you need is a simple plug adapter (just converts the plug shape, with NO voltage conversion), there are worldwide adapters for under $5:

    If you need a voltage converter as well, those are a little more expensive because they actually have some electronics inside. But are still quite affordable, under $15:

Any laptop purchased in USA will work anywhere else in the world or the vice versa. Just buy a universal travel adapter to take care of the different power plugs in different countries.

u/himenohogosha1 · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I went to NZ (from US) about 2 years ago and I bought these to bring with me :

They're just physical adapters, and if you have the stock phone charger it should be able to accept a 100-240V, 50/60Hz so you should be fine. If you don't have the stock charger, look carefully on the one you do have to see if it accepts the above inputs.

u/spcmnsp1ff · 2 pointsr/berlin

This is what I use on my travels. I live in Germany but I have family in the US so I go back and forth quite often. This thing works both ways. I usually take only one and bring one of these. Hope this helps!

u/pirround · 2 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

There are four potential problems.

  • The difference in voltage. Bangladesh is 220v 50Hz as opposed to 110v 60Hz in the US. Check that your electronics are okay with this -- most are but it's generally in tiny writing on the transformer. If you're electronics aren't okay with this, then you need a transformer to convert the power to 110v (your electronics still need to be able to handle 50Hz).

  • The shape of the prongs. You can get one that tries to do everything, but I prefer ones like these and just take the one I need which is smaller and more reliable. Most of the AAA stores sell these.

  • Plugging a grounded cord into an ungrounded outlet. With most of the travel adapters you can just do this -- the ground prong misses the adapter and is too short to interfere with the wall outlet. I had one where I needed to file down the plastic a bit to make it work, but most just work.

  • Plugging a grounded cord into an ungrounded outlet safely. If this is safe is another question. Most electronics just use the ground outlet in case of a surge that causes arcing, but some need it to reduce interference. If you're really worried about arcing, you can get a GFCI adapter -- under most US building and electrical codes you can install a 3-pronged GFCI outlet and not connect the ground since the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter is a type of circuit breaker that will cut the power if anything connects to the ground. So if you have a GFCI adapter you can cut off the ground pin and be reasonably safe. Although finding a GFCI that can handle 220v in the US can be difficult, so you're probably better off not bothering.

I would personally recommend this adapter. Has more options. Just make sure that your power adapters are approved for the higher voltage of most European countries (the apple chargers are fine) Insten Universal World Wide Travel Charger Adapter Plug, White

u/PearsonFlyer · 2 pointsr/travel

I have about 5 of these in my travel bag. They work everywhere I've been, and don't have parts that come off or get lost.

u/exekutor · 2 pointsr/chile

In Chile we have 220v outlets, while ya'll have 110v outlets. Before using this adapters you have to make sure that your device says 110~240.

This'll do:

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/minimalism

I guess I would have to spend $3 to completely solve that problem.

u/staratit · 2 pointsr/VietNam

Wall sockets in Vietnam are EU type with 2 round prongs, although most wall sockets are universal that accept any plug.

Just to be safe, pick up one universal adapter like this

, you can buy more in VN at lower price as needed. Also note that electrical power in Vietnam is 220V/50Hz. All laptops/phones/cameras accept varying voltage, but double check it again so that you do not make any foolish and costly mistake.

u/pilaf · 1 pointr/argentina

We use two types, you can find them here.

You could also buy one of these and you wouldn't have to worry all that much about the type of sockets used at your destination.

u/scottonian · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

Came here to say this.

Would only add that you should just bring a universal adapter ( with you.

  1. That's a lot of pants. See if you can bring it down to 1 pair of chinos, 1 pair of jeans, and 2 pairs of shorts. Pick the most versatile pairs. I'd drop a pair of CDBs and add another pair of sneakers. Remember that CDBs don't work with shorts, and you'll be able to travel with the bulkiest pair of shoes on your feet. If you're gonna do laundry, you might as well drop the number of shirts too. Bring PJs and a microfiber towel if you're staying in a hostel.

  2. I like a jacket like this for summer wear, because it is decently warm, very breathable, and can be packed tightly. If you're looking for something special to add to your stuff, I recommend waiting until you're already there. Your money might be better spent on food, gifts, etc.

  3. Shoot for carry-on luggage only. I know it's tough to pack, but it is soooo much less stressful flying without worrying about your luggage. Depending on how you want to do it, either a suitcase like this or a hiking backpack would be a good fit. I prefer the suitcase, even though you'll have to drag it on on some bumpy cobblestone roads. With the suitcase, you get to have the smaller backpack as well, meaning extra space and an everyday bag if you want to carry it everywhere. Don't keep anything you want to keep in the front pocket of your Everlane bag, it's a super easy pickpocket pocket.

  4. Make sure you've got sunglasses and a hat, you'll probably be outside a lot. Get something like this to go along with this, and keep an extra battery like this if you think you'll be using a lot of juice on your phone taking pictures, etc. A small umbrella might be useful depending on where you go, and can be stored in the water bottle pocket of your backpack. Download maps ahead of time with google maps and use Mapway Limited apps to navigate transit offline.

  5. Dress how you want, DGAF. Staying away from branded stuff can help you blend though. Killshots scream American to me, but I don't know their reputation in other countries. Targets tend to be the fannypack tourists that are obliviously standing in front of major attractions.
u/TemptNotTheBlade · 1 pointr/india

Very expensive. At the Bombay International Airport - a travel adaptor one costs more than 10-15$. And I couldn't find one which is a World Adaptor like this one -

There were different adaptors for different countries.

u/afa392 · 1 pointr/travel

I've been using this adapter for a while now and it works really well. It is just an adapter but it isn't an issue since most chargers allows you to use a range of voltage from 110 to 220

u/dasony · 1 pointr/korea

This is what I use to use American appliances here. As you can see it's only a buck, but it's not easy to find this. EMart usually only carries the reverse one. So if you want to play safe and get it in US, you can get something like this. Or if you are planning to go to other countries in the future, get a universal one. I can't understand why, but this is only 31 cent.

Just for fun, you can see the list of power plugs.Korea uses type C and F.

u/mjshal · 1 pointr/JapanTravel

Yes, get something like this :
Some fancy ones has USB port for charging as well

u/YourRaraAvis · 1 pointr/travel

I wouldn't do white, personally. I bought one white travel shirt and tossed it after one trip in favor of black and navy.

Also, I would trade toilet paper for baby wipes.

Edited to add: I don't know where you're going, but that adapter is only useful for USA --> parts of Europe. If you are going to the UK, or if you end up buying electronics there (for instance, my macbook power cord broke as soon as I got here, and to buy a cord + American adapter was more than twice as expensive as buying a UK cord), you'll want something like this. It's bigger, but far more useful.

Forget public transportation. It sucks, is useless and a time waster.

While it may be easier to rent a car at the airport, plan to rent one off-property. There is a 14% surcharge tax for rental cars from the airport. Instead get one located on Jetport Drive. They have shuttles to the airport, without the extra daily 14% tax. I'd suggest emailing to get times/availability for shuttles and hours. Yes, it's not as convenient as the airport, but the price difference could be a couple hundred bucks depending on what car/SUV/truck/van you rent. Just plan to return an hour or two earlier than you would have to plan for the shuttle.

Miami is a four hour drive EACH WAY from Orlando. It's a trip. The fastest way there is the Florida turnpike which runs just outside Orlando and goes through the center of the state, but it is a toll road. It will cost you about $16 each way and is about 3 hours 45 minutes. If you take I-95, it is four hours flat, but doesn't have tolls.

Coming to Florida in October is good, It is considered the low season, so hotels are cheaper. If you want to see the Miami that's on every TV show, then you want to go to South Beach. While you can get away with shorts and a t-shirt in Orlando, that will not happen in Miami. There they dress for everything. A collared shirt and chinos is OK for most, but I'd pack a button-up shirt and belt for nighttime.

Nightlife in South Beach should include Lush, a nice cheap place for good drinks and good folks. Lost Weekend is another place the locals hang. Abbey Brewing is another nice spot. But really, they brew beer. How bad can the place be.

For real Miami, go to Hoy Como Ayer in Little Havana. Great dancing the whole night. If you want to see the beautiful people, then go people watch at LIV in the Fontainebleau Hotel. The lines are what you see on television. The cover is $200. The clothes are Armani or Pucci, the watches are Baume & Mercier and the shoes are black label Testonis. But if you want to see and be seen with the beautiful people, this is the place.

Please keep in mind how big Florida is. This drive is like driving from London to York. (I was stationed in Europe and spent lots of time traveling.) It's not just a quick ride up the road. If you want to rent a car in one place and drop it off in another, there is a fairly steep upcharge of about $100-$150. Keep in mind Orlando is the busiest rental car place in the world. The rental car companies want their cars here.

Orlando has a downtown, but there isn't much there I'd take a drive to go see. EDIT: Actually, there isn't anything I'd drive to go see now that I've thought about it.

The thing I hear regularly from folks visiting the states for the first time is how big everything is. Our vehicles, roads, people, stores, everything is on a much grander scale here than in the UK. We have an incredible amount of land here and build to fill it. If you notice, not a single person posting said something was 10 miles away. No, we measure by how long it takes because our roads/traffic are a bit of a mess.

Cell phones... Check with your carrier about international roaming. It is extremely expensive here in the states.

I don't know what cell service you have, but I'd suggest taking a look at this site for prepaid minutes on a SIM card. I've used them for international travel in Europe, South America and Western Africa and never had issues. If this doesn't float your boat, you can get a prepaid cheap cell phone (won't be a smart phone) with 100 minutes for $25 at convenience stores, drug stores, Walmart, Target, etc..

Remember to get an adapter for your plugs for your laptop, shaver, phone or whatever else you plug in.

Hope this helps

  • Science: You are here - it's just a fun poster, but actually really interesting the more you look at it. It seems silly, but you really get a sense of how big our galaxy is.

  • Gardens: Herb Savor - This thing is pretty awesome and helps keep herbs and such fresh.

  • Writing: Who doesn't want to learn Calligraphy

  • Film/Movies: I absolutely love Mel Brooks - I really really want it!

  • Fantasy: Leaf Clasp

  • Books/Authors: The Border Trilogy by Cormac McCarthy - These books are beautifully written. The most poetical version of prose I've ever read. Anything Richard Matheson - I had to put this as well because Richard Matheson is one of my favorite authors. He wrote many short stories (many became twilight zone episodes) and his novels are amazing. He wrote I Am Legend, which I would 100% recommend. However, the link is to one of his short story collections because they are just too amazing to pass up.
  • Nature/outdoors: Picnic Wine holder - There's nothing better than a nice glass of wine and these things are awesome.

  • Spirituality: Bamboo wind chime - I don't know why, but I have always felt there was something spiritual about wind chimes; especially wooden ones; and especially bamboo ones.

  • Art supplies - Sketching kit - I don't know much about art supplies, but this looks like a nice set.

  • Math - Pi Ice Cubes - They're just too cute and also math related

  • Travel: Universal Surge Protector - I wasn't sure if you travel a lot internationally, but if you do, get this.

  • Food - Citrus ginger dressing - This stuff is to die for!

  • Fun stuff: Lightsaber chopsticks - These are so fun to use. I'm taking a shot in the dark about whether you like sushi or star wars, but if I'm right, you'll want these.

  • Something not on this list, but that you absolutely have to link to or you'll explode: Dino Sandwich cutter - Do I even need to explain?

Most likely you will only have to pick up a plug adapter. Most power units are both 110 and 220/240 already. it should say so on the side.

like this


No need to worry about the exact type and for each and every one...

u/Nemo222 · 0 pointsr/Calgary

Not UL listed of course so its unlikely you'd find it in a reputable retailer

slightly better design so its less likely to have 2 plugs extended and one overhanging a power bar or socket but nowhere near inherently safe.

similar to the first one. Probably has some more thought put into it but still no real protection from extending two input plugs and plugging one in. A "mechanical safety shutter" doesn't work if it breaks.
