Going on Elegant adventure, will I need an adapter to charge things and if so what type. would the hotels provide one?
Some places might have loaners, but don't count on it. I posted a photo in an archived thread. I'll see if I can find it.
Couldn't find it. SA is an outlier and while plugs and outlets there may look the same (have the same pin/hole arrangement) the pins are a different size than plugs/receptacles used in the UK and the rest of Europe.
Many newer hotels will have universal outlets suitable for almost all plugs, however. Check the supply voltage- outlets in most countries in the world supply 240V (household voltage in the US is 120V) That will be ok if your chargers are dual voltage (120V & 240V). Most tablet and phone chargers are dual voltage. You should consider taking a small multi-outlet travel power strip so you only need one adapter to charge all your devices at the same time- see photo below. Many fold up, have up to 4 outlets and some have 2 to 3 USB charging ports.
There are plenty similar devices out there. I didn't go all the way to check-out to verify stocking status, but some websites other than Amazon still still show this one.
There are plenty of others out there. My original one doesn’t have the USB ports and I’d love to get another, but Mr B says it’s not necessary. We take ours everywhere. Magellan’s do a nice one but it’s about $34 plus shipping.
