APzek Universal Travel Power Adapter

When traveling internationally, there’s a certain peace of mind that comes from knowing that you’ll be always able to keep your devices charged, no matter where you go. To manage that, you need a “universal” power adapter like this one.

I put “universal” in quotes because there are always limitations on these kinds of gizmos — in this case, a lack of a built-in voltage converter, thus making it unsuitable for high-power appliances like hair dryers, clothing irons, etc. As long as you use it only for charging things like smartphones, tablets, laptops, cameras, Bluetooth speakers, power banks, and the like, then you’ll be fine.


The adapter comes with four types of power prongs that you can slide up to expose as needed:

  1. Type A (US standard) — United States, Mexico, Japan, Brazil, China, the Philippines, Thailand, and more.
  2. Type C (Europe standard) — France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, India, and more.
  3. Type G (UK standard) — United Kingdom, England, Ireland, Scotland, Hong Kong, Iraq, Kenya, and more.
  4. Type I (Australia standard) — Australian, New Zealand, Argentina, Guatemala, Fiji, American Samoa, Papua New Guinea, and more.

You also get three USB-A outputs (5V/2.4A) and one USB-C port (5V/3A) for charging a handful of devices at once. I also like that the unit is so brightly colored, so there’s definitely no missing it in your bag when you need to plug in.

Get this nifty travel adapter for $18 on Amazon in your choice of bright blue or bright green.
