Are you traveling abroad? Then there might be a different power outlet at your destination. There are some standards around the world, and even though Europe for example, uses a different voltage than the US, modern products can handle both.
However, you’ll still need an adapter to make the plug fit into the power outlet if it’s a different socket. That’s where a travel adapter comes handy.
What is a Travel Adapter?
A travel adapter allows you to connect electronic gadgets to other sockets than Swedish electrical outlets. If you travel to the United States or the UK, the appearance of the electrical outlets is different. On the travel adapter, there are different plugs and depending on how advanced travel adapter you have, the more types of sockets you can use.
There are both easier travel adapters and more advanced. I prefer a more advanced as I travel often and to many different places. It will also be easier to have everything in one. A bit like a multitool, fixed for power outlets.
What power outlets are most common?
You probably know what’s most common in your part of the world. In Europe, you generally use this power outlet just like home in Sweden. Outside Europe, this is not as common, but instead, it is more common to use other varieties such as Types A, B, G and I.
In quite a few countries, you’ll be seeing other types, and then a travel adapter is good to have. The best thing you can do is check before specifically what type of power outlet they have in the country you are visiting.
Below is a list of typical destinations where power outlets are different from Sweden and Europe and vice versa:
- New Zealand
