  • What travel adapters are needed down under?

    2010-07-14

    According to luxury website Virtuoso, Australia was named as the "dream destination" in a poll of its readers, with nearby New Zealand coming in third. Those who want to plan a trip to the area will want to know how they can stay connected while on the go. Australia and New Zealand travel adapters will ensure that vacationers can use all their devices while visiting the land down under.

    Australia and New Zealand use different wiring schemes than many other countries. Travel adapters for the US, UK, Europe, and many other countries will not work in Australia and New Zealand.

    Sockets down under are a bit different than American outlets. The three holes are arranged in a similar, upside-down triangle fashion, but the top two prong slots are at a slight angle.

    The good news about Australia and New Zealand travel adapters are that they will also work in countries like Argentina, Papau New Guinea, and mainland China.

    By using these adapters, travelers can ensure that they can use their laptops, smartphones, iPads and other travel gadgets while on vacation. They'll come in handy when sending pictures of kangaroos and koalas back to friends at home.
