Are you a frequent international traveler? If yes, it means you’ll be carrying a phone, a camera, maybe a laptop and probably a few more things, like portable speakers or an electric razor. You’ll need to charge all those items from time to time, and while you’re traveling, you need to have an adapter to use your electronics and appliances.

The plugs that are standard in your home country are not standard in other countries. So here is when global travel adapter works. However, when it comes to choosing global travel adapter, there are few tips you need to bear in mind.

International Adapter

If you buy a travel adapter, an international adapter is recommended. Plugs can vary from country to country. An adapter that works in France won’t work in Australia or Japan. If you buy one suitable only for European plugs, you’ll need another one for Australia, South Africa, and so on. International travel adapters are great because they’re designed to provide different plug options all over the world– all in the same compact item!

USB Options

Nowadays, with all those phone cables, different chargers, etc., getting an adapter with a few USB entries (at least two) would be the most intelligent option. Actually, the best travel adapters are equipped with more than one USB port.

Size

There is a considerable difference in size if we compare regular adapters (suitable for just one type of plug) and international travel adapters (for all types of plugs). Of course, international adapters tend to be bigger and bulkier because they have a more complex design to work with several plug types.

Instruction and Certification

If you have any doubts about your electronic device, read the instructions to be sure about the voltage and other characteristics. If you aren’t sure about the quality of your device and your travel adapter, check if it has the proper certifications: the CE for Europe, the FCC for the USA, the CSA for Canada, the RCM for Australia, etc.

As you probably know, every region of the world has different sockets. In some countries, you can find several types of sockets! And sometimes even Papua New Guinea and Brazil don’t have the same plugs.

Electric Currents

Sometimes you can also experience problems with electric currents. For example, Europe uses an alternating current electricity voltage of 220V, while Japan uses 100V and the USA 120V. Some electronic devices would work just fine in other countries but you have to be careful. There are some exceptions depending on where you’re traveling and the type of electronic device you’re using.
