Going on vacation means preparing your luggage… without forgetting your chargers and electronic devices:
-Charger for your camera
I’m telling you in this post how to make all your devices work while in New York ! If you want more packing tips, click here.
The plugs in the United States
It is very important to know that plugs in the United States may be different from those used in your home country. So you might need to buy an adapter for your devices for your trip to New York.
The adapters can be purchased at any special electronic store or grocery supermarkets.
If you travel a lot to several countries, I recommend that you buy a multi adapter like the one below. If you only plan to travel to USA, you might purchase a simple adapter, they are even cheaper and they work very well 😉
The voltage of your electrical and electronic devices
Another important thing is that the voltage may also be different from your country: in USA it’s 110V.
Before taking your electronic devices to NY, check if there’s a tag indicating “voltage 110/220”. If not, your device will “burn” from the moment you plug it in and use it with an unsuitable voltage. Then there are no more remedies but throwing away your device …
Here’s my advice: if your hair dryer indicates 110 / 220V, leave it at home… My wife burned several hair dryers! 😀
Don’t worry, because most hotels provide their own hair dryers.
Do you want another suggestion?
Don’t buy an adapter for every electronic device you have. Purchase a power strip and one adapter then plug all your devices to the power strip and use only one adapter. Furthermore, some power strips already have surge protection.
It’s my best advice to travel safe, with no surprises and no need to buy replacement items in New York… that won’t work at home!
