I'm heading to Germany in a few weeks. Can you recommend a power converter I can use over there? Cheers

Most of these, especially the ones with wall warts, should be 220V capable. Look at the writing; it should say 110-220V or some such. If everything is, all you need is an adapter. I carry a small multi-tap extension cord with me as well so I only need one adapter.

Go to the travel section in Walmart or Target etc... The plug in converters have slide out plugs that'll work in the different European countries. Easy to use...no worries.

Most Major brand hotels also have a US style plug in the bathroom for electric shavers etc that run on 115v.
