|NOTE: You only need
adaptors if you are bringing a GSM phone, a camera battery recharger
a laptop computer. These devices are normally already dual voltage
so no converter is needed.
You can also buy small hair
dryers that have a small switch for changing voltages.
about the correct adaptors for France
Mini International Travel Pack:
This is available at Best Buy stores.
Below is the adaptor that you
will need for France. All sets includes it.
Just say NO
plug style "C"
For cameras that have rechargeable
batteries you can usually use a generic set of adaptors. See TARGUS link
above for a widely available set.
One store that sells them is The
Savvy Traveler on S. Michigan Ave., Chicago.
You may also order them from someplace
In the case of a GSM phone you
probably received the correct adaptors with your phone.
If not -- check with a local store
for your service provider. They should have them available for purchase,
although the generic ones should work also.
We do NOT recommend bringing
any appliance that requires a converter.
Converters are heavy and the
appliance does not always run correctly even with a converter.
