Apologies in advance for a boring question but would appreciate any advice. I'm going travelling in SE Asia and am thinking about getting an MP3 player or something similar to take. Most of these seem to have their own battery cells and recharger. How easy is it to recharge stuff like this when your travelling (especially in places like Thailand etc) or am i much better off getting something that takes normal batteries?

Thanks for any advice!

good question! i was wondering the same thing as i want to re-charge my digital camera batteries. how easy is it to get access to a plug? i have an adapter that hasnt failed me yet, but will i be able to charge my batteries up in places like laos, vietnam and cambodia?

sorry i didnt answer your question mark, but i wanna know what the deal with re-charging is too.

I have taken my digi camera and phone (to Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam) on a few occassions. As long as you take a 2 pin adapter you will have no problems finding places to plug in and recharge.

I'd recommend something like Solio if your device is compatible, allows you to pug in you device to the wall, charge it's own internal storage battery as well as your device with no heavy battery charger needed. As well it's a fold out solar charger you can hang off your backpack for when no outlet is available.

An idea anyway.

Hi, making sure you have an adaptor relevent to the areas your going to you should be able to find points to charge up.

Although those of you planning on visiting India should be aware that depending on where you go these may be more difficult to find, especially when staying in budget accomodation.

Cheers for the info guys cos I was wonderin as well.
I found what looks like (I havent bought one yet) to be a good battery pack for your Ipod if u have one.

Belkin Backup Battery Pack

Though it is about £35.
