Dear all!

I'm going to a journey of more days and I'd like to keep in contact thru my notebook, but the battery is not good for days and I have no idea of what kind of plug they use f.ex in Germany and in Dubai on the airport.

It might sound stupid but I'd feel very lonely in a remote airport in an unknown city without Internet.

Thank you all, and I wish You all a very joyful Christmas!

Gloria, that plug you link to is used throughout Europe for light-duty appliances like lamps, tape recorders, TV sets or battery chargers.

Your flat plug will also fit the socket shown here: http://www.global-electron.com/plugs/F.htm

(this is the "earthed version").

Both versions are the standard plugs for Germany.

If you're visiting any British-influenced places (incl. Ireland, Cyprus, etc.) then a "shaver adapter" is suitable for low-power equipment:

A handful of adapters is available from Radio Shack for about 7 or 8 bucks.

C-H, I checked out your site.

I've always wondered what plugs they used in Equatorial Guinea and now I know. You definately have too much time on your hands.

Ohh, I guess it is the same as ours, so I don't have to buy another wire. Thanks!
