APC Universal Plug Adapter

No, the thing pictured here is not some Transformers toy for kids, though it could transform your packing. If you are traveling from country to country with loads of electronic gadgets, this universal AC adapter could make life easier. I could have used this on my last trip, where I ended up being confronted with three different kinds of electrical outlets in a single country.

The idea is that wherever you are, you tweak this thing like a Rubik's cube and it will work in the socket.Just be advised though that this still doesn't solve your fluctuating voltage woes. Don't go plugging your 110v cord into a 220v socket unless you want to kiss the item on the other end goodbye.
