Multiple outlet question

Traveling with two daughters and we will need multiple outlets for electronics, curling irons, etc. and only have one adapter. Is the best solution more adapers or possibly a power strip? Thanks. Trip is in 4 weeks.....so we are finalizing details

I got an international extension cord at Magellan's Travel website.

Buy cheap curling irons here. Yours will be the incorrect voltage and liable to overheat and become damaged.

For low power items, phones, tablets or cameras an adaptor linked to a strip will be sufficient.

I believe that the general advice is not to bring curling irons/straighteners/ hair dryers as they can be a problem unless they are dual voltage.

Leave the high wattage devices like hair dryers and straighteners at home and buy cheap versions at somewhere like Argos, Boots or Superdrug

Most electronic chargers will cope will anything from 100V to 250V without any problem. Many these days can be charged from a USB port so consider buying a plug adaptor that has a couple of USB charging ports built in
