Best Travel Electrical Adapters

I've done quite a few posts on this blog about travel adapters for electronics. For a start, I've covered the Travelon adapter and converter, the three-piece unit from Sima Products, and the 150-country adapter with USB port available from a catalog company.

But there are more, many more, so here's a full rundown I did for a product review website: the best travel electrical adapters.

The way that site works, there are 5 "best of the best" and 5 "best of the rest," but of course it really depends on your individual needs. If you are just carrying a laptop with a built-in voltage converter, a plug set is fine. If you are carrying five devices of varying wattage, then you need a voltage converter that can handle all that.

Look through the options and see what makes sense. Or just leave it all at home and act like a backpacker from 15 or 20 years ago: no gadgets, no plugs, no worries.

Yeah I know, if nothing else, there's your digital camera...

We are going to Scandinavia and St. Petersburg Russia-mainly need adapter/converter for cell phone and camera batter charging. Which would be best for these uses?
thanks!

I'm surprised you haven't reviewed the Road Warrior Travel Adapter. I've been to over 60 countries in the world and have taken this everywhere. We discovered it in Asia, but they sell them online now. http://www.rwarrior.com
