Lots of Power Wherever You Go

Lots of Power Wherever You Go

A digital diver is typically loaded down with electronic toys that will inevitably need recharging. We don't always have the luxury of a sophisticated charging station like on some of the nicer live-aboards, and finding a place to plug in all your rechargeables can sometimes be an issue, especially when traveling internationally.

We've discovered this wonderful 220 power strip/surge protector that will work in every country you visit. Its not a converter, so don't plug in a device that needs 110, but for those 220 devices that have the standard US plug, this is a great little device to carry with you when traveling overseas. You can also plug in any other plug type since the plugs are universal.

The BB-13 Surge Multi-Outlet Surge Protector has the highest clamping voltage rating that is given at 300 volts. It comes with a European "schuko" plug but with the optional grounding adapter, WA-GF, any plug adapter can be added to enable this extraordinary surge protector to be used anywhere in the world. To date, I've used this power strip in Indonesia, Fiji and Hong Kong and it has worked flawlessly.

You can pick up an international power strip and all the optional grounded converters online from the Travel Oasis store.
