Yep, that's it. This will work for most things like phone chargers. It will not work for hair dryers, curling irons, and other things that pull current to heat up, UNLESS they are dual-voltage appliances. They'll probably have a small switch somewhere to change from 110 to 220.

I assume by "chargers" you mean telephone or electronics chargers which are actually multi-voltage (100VAC-240VAC) to 5VDC (USB) voltage converters. They probably have a US plug with equal width blades. Any US device with a polarizing plug (one blade wider) has safety feature which rely on polarized power, but, except for Switzerland, European power is probably not polarized.

Phones and cameras today are mostly dual voltage. All I use where ever in the world I go, are plug adapters to fit into various wall plug configurations. I also have a dual voltage hair dryer I bought from Magellans.

I carry the voltage transformer and the plug adapter (that are the two you need), needed for electrical outlets in Germany...they work fine when recharging the cell phone.

Most Polish hotels have hairdryers, so you won't need to carry one. If you use other devices like a curling iron, you will need converters that are powerful enough to handle them.
