I have a camera with a rechargeable battery. I am traveling to Russia, Germany, Czech Republic and Austria. IS there an adapter that works with the voltage in these countries? Or do I need to take multiple batteries?
If your charger unit is rated for multiple/dual voltages (typically 100v to 240v), then your battery charger will function with the typical 220v alternating European electric power. You will need the appropriate adaptor. The two round prong adaptor worked in Germany, Czeck Republic and Austria. I haven't been to Russia.
Thanks! I had been told that my charger would not work in Europe, but after looking at it some more, it looks like it is OK for 220 V. I do have a 2 prong adapter.
Russia west of the Urals uses the same adapter as the other listed nations.
The question's been answered, but since this is in the Tips section. . . .
http://www.kropla.com/electric2.htm provides information on electricity by country, voltage and plug/socket types.
Be sure to check the Input Voltage specifications on ALL electrical devices you'll be travelling with, to ensure that they're rated for operation from 100-240 VAC.
Regarding PLUG ADAPTORS I'd suggest packing along at least two, as they're small and easy to misplace.
