I bought this adapter for a recent trip to Greece and the UK. Worked great with both plug designs. Remember this is an adapter, not a converter. Voltage is still too high to directly power US devices, but most battery chargers will take both 110 and 220 current. Read your charger to be sure. I used the adapter to charge my IPhone and to recharge my camera battery. The hotel had a hairdryer, so this was a very inexpensive way to do what I needed!Read More
I bought this for a trip around the Baltics/ Northern Europe and London. The round 2 prong Europe part did work well. The 2 prong square worked in the USA but the UK/England 3 prong did not work at all. One prong is plastic and the other 2 are metal and no matter what I did it would not work. Good thing I bought some other adapters for UK with me. This is very cheap price and most of it worked however it does sit lopsided and you have to try to balance it in the outlet ot keep it working.Read More

And even with cell phone accessories like car chargers and emergency chargers, your battery power may not last long enough. Over time, your cell phone battery will start to degrade and battery life will shorten. When a cell phone battery starts to degrade, you may think of replacing your cell phone altogether. But if your cell phone is still fairly new, it may be less expensive to buy a replacement battery. This guide will help you choose a replacement battery for your cell phone.

Benefits of Using a Travel Backpack When Traveling
Travel backpacks offer a number of benefits for all types of travelers and may be an attractive alternative to larger tote bags, duffel bags and miniature suitcases. Whether you're traveling with a backpack over a long distance or traveling by plane with a small backpack as a carry-on, use a travel backpack designed with extra compartments and tight-fitting, portable style to ensure a comfortable travel experience. Easy to stow and store: The design of a travel backpack makes it easy to store it in overhead bins in a bus, train or airplane. The soft sides of a backpack let it conform to tight storage spaces. Many travel backpacks have compression straps that let you cinch the packs contents down to take up less space. Comfort: Travel backpacks put less strain on your body than most other kinds of luggage because their weight doesn't pull on one side of your body. Travel backpacks are designed to evenly distribute their load on your shoulders and hips, making them easy to carry for several hours. Thick straps with lots of padding make it even more comfortable. Keeps travelers organized: Many travel backpacks are designed with several compartments to store smaller items, such as water bottles, a cell phone, MP3 player, PDA, passport and subway tokens. This makes it easier to stay organized while traveling, ensuring that all your basic items and accessories are within easy reach. Easy to move around: Probably the biggest benefit of using a travel backpack is the ease of movement it provides. You don't have to worry about dragging a rolling suitcase up a flight of stairs. A travel backpack is also easier to maneuver through a crowd of people than most other types of luggage. Protects items from the elements: Many travel backpacks are made with water-resistant and waterproof fabrics that protect your valuables no matter what the weather forecast may look like. Travel backpacks made with polywick fabric, ballistic nylon and other weatherproofing materials are especially beneficial for travelers who will be outdoors for most of their trip.
