Hi guys,
I'm off to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. Can anyone recommend or send me a link of an appropriate travel plug or plugs that will do the job? The more I seem to look, the more confused I'm getting.
Thanks in advance :)
Nathan

Get an all in one travel plug which has all the various adaptors. Airport shops and others have them.

I never had a 3 pin plug in Malaysia so used the 2 pins and a non conducting rod pushing in the third, so the socket would take them.

Generally there are shops in these countries that will sell adaptors but you might have to look for them.

I brought this one and have used it in America so far. It was great and charged my phone and ipad at the same time :) A bit expensive, but covers 150 countries (or so the manual says!). If you go on Skoss website, it'll tell you what countries it can be used in.

Hi Nathan,

Singapore use the UK plug as do Malaysia. For Australia & New Zealand, you'll find they use the angled flat pinned plugs and Thailand use a combination of 2 round pinned plugs (European/Continental) and the 2 flat pinned plugs (USA type)...so a universal adapter would be a wise move :)

Hope you manage to find what you're looking for!

If you have room, take a four-gang with you and then just one adaptor will do as you charge up to four pieces of equipment at once.
