Best. Adapter. Ever.

Having the correct plug adapter when traveling used to be stressful for me, paricularly for extremely long journeys across multiple countries. Then my father, an extensive and experienced work traveler himself, gave me this adapter when I graduated from grad school. It is cheap, small, light-weight and I have yet to find a place where it doesn’t work.  I loved it so much I wanted to buy them by the dozen, but took forever to find them again.

Extra Tips:

  1. Keep the instructions. Each new outlet requires a reconfiguration of the two small pieces. Or you can just throw them away for a rubix cube worthy challenge.
  2. Also bring a 2 to 3 prong converter (the gray piece in the bottom center of the picture above), as the adapter only works for 2 prong plugs.

  1. Debbie gave us one – thank you!! Don’t need the directions: just swivel, twist, snap various prongs in and out until: voila: electricity surges! Confirmed: best travel item EVER!
