Anyone who has traveled outside their home country knows the importance of travel adapters. Anyone who has traveled extensively knows what a pain in the neck having to travel with a whole collection of them is. World travelers, rejoice. Hammacher Schlemmer feels your pain, and has released this compact travel adapter which works in 150 countries throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Australia.
The 150-Country Travel Adapter boasts an internal surge protector and a USB port, which can power iPods and cell phones, enabling you to leave all your chargers and adapters at home. It even allows you to connect devices to the USB and AC ports at the same time. Best of all, the price is only $29.95, so you can easily get more than one (but only if you actually need to to plug in/charge more than one AC or USB device at a time) — Mike Payne
