Either a US/Euro plug-adapter og a proper converter. Euro-voltage is 220-230V (50Hz) so if you're going for just the adapter you need to check if all your appliances are good for 220-230V - if not you'll need a converter or your appliances will suffer.

For the iPhone and iPad, all you need to do is replace …images-amazon.com/images/I/41%2Bs-SGI7NL._S… with …aliimg.com/img/…396563669_074.jpg

It's called a "duckhead".

Check the back of your gadgets to see if they need a converter + adapter, or just an adapter. The difference is that the converter takes the 220V power and makes it the American 110V, while the adapter just allows the plug to physically plug into the wall sockets.

You can tell which gadgets only need an adapter by looking at the bottom of your electronics. There is a label that has a bunch of information, including INPUT. If this reads, "110-240V AC" then it is dual voltage and only needs an adapter. If it only says, "110V AC" then you need a converter.

Odds are that anything that says 110V only isn't worth bringing with you. Most gadgets, like the iPod and your laptop will be dual voltage. For the adapter, you need the skinny two prong adapter. For example, something like this: http://goo.gl/z2UBl

Another option would be to pick up one of these and be good to go wherever you go. A friend of mine has one and it's really nice. http://goo.gl/8P16e

I have one of those. They are swiss made and Ryanair sells them onboard and so do other airlines.
