Universal Adaptor

In some cases, a universal adaptor can be considered to be an absolute must item for digital nomads.

You will need an outlet adaptor plug to charge your devices when you travel abroad. A universal adaptor allows you to plug into different types of power outlets.

Check to see if the device you are bringing can handle the electrical currents of 120V and 220V. If your device can, then any regular adaptor will work. Most adaptors can be bought on Amazon or at Best Buy.

If need to buy an electrical current converter, then no need to worries because there are combo deals where you can purchase a travel adaptor and converter.
