    Do you all recommend i buy an outlet adapter so iphone, ipad, lap top , etc can plug in no problem ? This would be for Europe in Dec but also i guess for my asia/aussie trip in the spring. I saw something on Amazon for $30 that says it has connections for Europe & Asia.

    For electronics, or anything with it's own "power brick" (and yes, the little box on the iPhone plug is its brick) you don't need a power converter, just a plug adapter. I'd just get a pack that has a bunch of different types. Keep in mind how many you'll need for overnight - so maybe the laptop doesn't stay plugged in all night but the phone and tablet do - or whatever your choice is. You can also get combo power converter/adapters that take up one wall plug but have multiple USB connections.

    You should be good with that. Looks similar to what I have. Just remember warning above - will work with any device that has a "brick". Some things like electric razors may not have a brick, and could require a converter.

    I have a beard these days i havent shaved in 2 years i will be fine with No electric razor haha. I just use old school Bic razor to go around the beard.. But okay sounds good i will keep that in mind. I just need to charge the lap top, tablet and the phone. Most importantly the phone i have early flights i gotta have the alarm go off.
