Travel Adapters

A travel adapter has become an essential for using electronic devices when you travel. If the voltage or plug type differs from those within your country of residence then you will need an adapter. Power outlets have different shapes in different parts of the world, so you will need an adapter to convert the shape of your home plug types to the shape of the outlets in the region of the world you're travelling too.

Grounded vs. Non-Grounded Adapters

A grounded adapter means it is suitable for use with a three-prong type of electrical sockets. All devices will work normally without the ground wire because it's not a part of conducting path, however, grounding guarantees an extra security and protection for your appliances.
