I get adapters for my cords so I can carry fewer: I have just a short and long USB-C cord but then alternate tips I can put on it to change into micro USB, lightning, and plug into a regular USB slot if need be.

I also carry a tiny flashlight on a keychain hanging off my pack - it's surprising how often this comes in handy.

The Kikkerland Universal Travel Adapter is AMAZING, works everywhere and is a third of the size of most travel adapters:

I personally hate both of them. they're too bulky and take up too much of the outlet space, sometime blocking access to other outlets or finding yourself not able to use to because it can't fit.

for converting I simply use this. most of what I charge is via USB, so I use this two port dongle. I also travel full time and use this converter/extension cord.

There are like a million versions of that same basic adapter. You can probably score one off ebay for less than $3.

That said, if you want something super packable and light that works worldwide check out:
this badboy is awesome and super thin.

Bring your own they are cheap... here are 2 of my favorites


Just make sure your electronics can handle a 220v input (most modern electronics you will see are rated for 100-220v which means you can use them anywhere as long as you have an adapter)

First of all, good decision, even alone you'll probably have a great time, meet lots of people and likely become hooked on travel. :-) Here's some things I'd look for in a travel pack:

  • A ~40L bag is a good size that will force you to think about every item and not bring the kitchen sink. You'll also appreciate the size/weight when having to walk with it. Later in life when you might want to fly, it will also pass as a carry on bag which simplifies things incredibly and avoids the dreaded lost luggage scenario.

  • Some travel packs are definitely expensive. My advice on this is that most good packs come with excellent, even lifetime, warranties and will last you for many, many years and trips. So if you can, I'd try and save up a little more to avoid getting a cheap one that won't last. We might not be talking about a huge amount of money difference here either. I imagine a night out at the bar or a few packs of cigarretes/tobacco could be the difference between a lousy pack and a good one.

  • Get one with a load bearing hip belt and good shoulder straps. Night and day difference when walking.

  • Get one that can open the main compartment like a suitcase. Way easier to deal with.

  • Get a pack rain cover. Many packs have them built in but don't worry if it doesn't as you can buy them separately and they take up minimal space/weight.

  • I absolutely recommend only buying one that you have tried on stuffed with weight bags. Sizing is very important for the hip belt and shoulder straps to work correctly and you'll be able to see what you are getting.

  • Also purchase a light day pack (15-20L) that can be packed inside your main bag. You'll use this once you are settled in your accommodation and ready to explore.

  • I'm sure there are some great brands in Europe that aren't available in North America, so don't worry if you can't find the ones most people on here (North Americans) recommend.

    Some other tips:

  • Get a dry bag to store stuff that cannot get wet.

  • Light packing cubes really do help organize and roll your clothes.

  • Cheap household garbage bag. If you know its gonna be pouring I put my packing cubes inside this even with my rain cover.

  • An ultralight packtowel is a great item to have.

  • For our electronics, things like this and this have been great.

    Finally, 10 days travelling in a month means your trip will absolutely fly by. You might end up wishing you'd taken longer, which isn't always possible, and you won't be able to stay long in places you love. Mentally prepare yourself for this.

    Have a great trip!

We're not sure which one (if any) is a 'white label' of the other (they look very similar) but as an alternative we've been very happy with the Kikkerland UL03-A. It's also affordable at about $10 (and currently less than the one above).

We're r/Onebag travelers so volume (4 1/8 L x 1 6/8 W x 5/8 D inches, per our measurements) and weight (1.6 ounces, per product page) are very important to us.

We've plugged/unplugged it over ~75 times over the last year and it's as good as new.

u/sixside · 3 pointsr/digitalnomad

I still see so many people using those bulky power adapters for international trips. Clearly not enough people know about the Kikkerland UL03-A Universal Travel Adapter

It's the about half the thickness & weight of all of those other adapters.

Care to share your database? :)

u/Leftium · 2 pointsr/seoul

Just get a travel plug adapter before you leave.

I use this one (converts any country to any country):

Here's a less fancy product that only works USA-to-Korea:

u/kingkake · 2 pointsr/onebag

I have one and the one time I tried to use it in Malaysia it didn't really work so great.

u/MistaAndyPants · 2 pointsr/onebag

This is about as tiny as you can get: Kikkerland UL03-A Universal Travel Adapter

u/PeteyNice · 1 pointr/travel

This is what I use and I have never had a problem. It works in the recessed outlets that Europe seems to favor better than the large bricks that others have recommended on this thread.

u/gabek333 · 1 pointr/onebag

I'm heading out to SEA in a few days, and now I am ready to go. Thoughts always appreciated. I included links to all my gear.

Your phone, laptop, and most other chargers work on any voltage between 100 and 240. You won't need a converter for them.

Blow dryers, straighteners, etc typically require a converter to change the voltage. Power tools will need specific voltage and a specific hertz, making them the most complex.

But for just your phone, laptop, etc, you just need an adapter.

Kikkerland is a favorite of a lot of travelers because it's small and light. Heavier ones sometimes have trouble staying on the wall. Ones like this are popular also, but larger in your bag

Awesome! Thank you. I definitely plan on buying an adapter before I go to the airport. Someone recommended this one to me:

  1. Exactly which countries will you need this to work in? As you can see from this map, there are a bewildering variety of plug types around the world.

  2. What type of plugs do your devices have—North American ones?

  3. How many outlets do you need this device to have? What about USB?

    If size is your primary concern, check out something like the Kikkerland UL03-A Universal Travel Adapter, which I own. While it is small and works in most countries in the world, I find plugging in something heavy like a Mac adapter into it tends to pull it out of the outlet.

    TooManyAdapters recommends the Flight 001 4-In-1 Adapter. While on the expensive side, they say it fits snugly into all the outlets they tested.

For charging things, you need both a converter and adapter if your electronics aren't dual voltage, one for dealing with the different shapes of the outlets in Europe, and one for dealing with the different voltage. Rick Steves talks about it here. Usually they're now in one piece. I got mine at Bed Bath & Beyond for pretty cheap. Here's an example. I have this, which is only a plug adapter because my electronics are marked dual voltage.

As for overhead room, I've never had trouble, especially if you aren't bringing anything bigger than a standard backpack or duffel bag. Even if it does get crowded, the flight attendants usually go around playing tetris so everyone can find space.

All flights I've been on had front door loading only, boarding by 'zones,' where 1/2/3 are first/business/priority passengers. Your zone will be marked on your ticket. Coach zones (like 3/4/5) have always boarded last. You won't be able to get on first unless you pay extra for the better front seats.
