Travel adapters – what to take

Instead of bringing multiple travel adapters on holiday just bring one travel adapter and a regular multi-power block that you can use to plug all your stuff into.

Here is what reddit users comments:

This happened to me.

I thought I was safe because I had a nice 230 to 120 VAC converter (advertised as handling 2000W). It had an automatic switchover between low power and high power.

When I plugged a 120V rated power strip into it, it worked fine. But after plugging in a few battery chargers, the converter switched to high power mode and blew out the power strip.

It blacked out an entire floor of my hotel.

(For the EE’s out there… I think that the high power mode had trouble regulating the voltage at the low-to-high power transition point, driving it up above 120V in anticipation of having to drive a high load device like a hair dryer.)
