In the last year, I’ve visited 11 different countries on five different continents. Some of them more than once. For each and every journey, I bring along a few time-tested traveler favorites, but perhaps none as important as my global travel adapter that works with literally any plug in the world.
As a travel journalist and photographer, being able to charge all my devices is paramount to my job — but it’s just as key for any of you travelers, casual or professional, to be able to capture and share all the moments you want of your personal vacations. And that’s why I and so many others fell in love with the MingTong All in One Universal Adapter.

To buy: amazon.com, $12
The compact adapter comes with four international plugs, meaning it covers you for all your charging needs in more than 150 countries across the globe. (The only places it doesn’t work are South Africa, India, Switzerland, and Italy.)
The all-in-one adapter comes with Fuse protect and a built-in safety shutter to prevent those dreaded blown-fuse moments, and it even comes with a dual USB port to charge multiple devices at once.
It may sound funny to love a mere device this much, however, I’m not the only one singing its praises.
“This was an excellent purchase,” one five-star Amazon reviewer wrote. “I bought two of them but found one was enough for my daughter and myself to charge our devices in our hotel room in the UK. We charged both of our phones in the USB ports and I used the front outlet to charge my tablet. My other daughter also purchased one and she charged her laptop and cell phone without issue. She also used it when we arrived back in the states and found she did not have a US plug with her.”
“Love this universal adapter, and very easy to use,” another happy customer expressed. “I travel overseas quite a bit. Having this one device can be used in different countries means I don't have to think about which adapter to bring. Especially having two USB ports makes even easier to charge cell phone and tablet at the same time.”
Before your next trip, be sure to pick up one of these handy and compact adaptors on Amazon. That way you too can document and share your travels with all your jealous family and friends back home.
