Converter and Adapter

Hello,

Do I need to bring both a converter and adapter if I would like to recharge my cell phone and camera? Or will most hotels have these?

Thanks!

Hi,

Most hotels will not provide them, so bring your own. I'm not sure about italian outlets, but in Germany I need a plug adaptor on top of the converter, simply because the electric outlets are not flush with the wall but recessed & round .The prongs of my rectangular converter are not long enough to reach the outlet, so I have to put another adaptor over the converter in order to reach the outlet openings.

Amazon sells all kinds of travel kits with both converters and adaptors at good prices.

You will most likely need both unless your cellphone charger is a dual-voltage charger.

Here is a kit that WalMart sells that should take care of everything and its inexpensive.
