Before travelling you need to know not only the type of electric plug and socket in your destination but also the voltage of the electric power, the frequency (Hertz) and any special requirements like fuses or earth connections that may interfere with the use of your equipment. Please remember that simple adapters do not convert voltage or frequency, and incorrect use may not only keep you from using your equipment but also damage it or even cause personal injuries. Using a plug adapter just changes the shape of the prongs. Countries with different voltages and frequencies may use similar plugs, so check to need if you need a power converter and not simply a plug adapter. Read the fine print in your power-source, many devices will accept both 110v and 220v, requiring only a plug adapter.
