Charging Electronics

Post by Terriah »

Hello!
Wondering what type/brand of adapter/voltage converter etc. people have used to charge their electronics while in Central Asia?
I'm planning a trip to Uzebek, Tajik, Kyrgyzstan and Kazahkstan. I have a solar charger, but would like some back up for my cameras etc.
Any recommendations or advice?
Thanks!

Hi Terriah,

yes that includes all countries. I don't know of any converter brands, all my electronics are bought in Europe which works on the same type of plug.

Battery chargers tend to accept all voltages and Hertz, so you really only need a cheap prong converter that you can pick up for a dollar. Or you can buy a brick-like universal prong converter, but they take up a lot more space.

I use OREI type E/F adapter. It doesn't convert the power supply in any way though. But it perfectly charges my cell phone and laptop. Btw, here you can make zojirushi rice cooker comparison.
