Converters in Bali

Hi~

I'm planning to bring my iphone, macbook and camera to Bali. A friend of mine just got back and said that she used a converter in Bali, but when she came back to the US her iphone no longer worked. She said she used a converter, but that it was a cheap one.

I don't want to damage my electronics. Does anyone have a reliable converter that works well in Bali that they can recommend?

Thanks

The only thing you'll need is a plug adapter.

All modern electronics have a self adapting power supply made to handle from 110 to 240.

My Macbook never had problems in Europe or in Bali, and it's a US model. My European iphone and Singaporean ipad work also everywhere without problems.

Make sure you use the official PSU for Mac and the Apple USB Plug for your phone and you should be fine.

Plug adapter should be from US to this type : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schuko

I have used a convertor for ipad's, tablets, and a friends macbook, and smart phones, with no issue. I prefer to take a surge protected adapter with me, as the Balinese adapters I have used have never been quality products. Being in Australia I use these adapters http://www.ji.com.au/products/PTAUSB/ but I am sure there are equivalent US adapters. Perhaps also check your travel insurance to see what it covers in case something does happen and your electronics no longer work.
