I find that a simple three way adaptor, or a simple household extension cord is the cheapest solution-usually under five bucks.

That is what we use as well.

I don't bother with "power strips"...I use a long extension cord...and stash it during the day..

Yankee! You are a genius! I never even thought of bringing an extension cord! We all do long research on the power strip not power cord thing!

JBlackler, these are the ones we have used in the past and loved them




We do like a couple motherland use the 3 way plug

A compact one that has a couple outlets and a few usb ports that you can just plug in to the lone outlet in your cabin.

I purchased a power strip from the .99 cent store. It's small enough to fit in my backpack and long enough to use at the airport and hotel.

I did however recently purchase the round power strip that is shown above. I like it because the cord wraps around itself for better storage in your backpack or suitcase.

But if you travel it's a must! Especially when you get to the airport and all of the sockets are taken. Just plug in yours and the one you removed and still room for someone else to join in. Instant friends! ...if you're into that. :)

Amazon has a lot of travel size surge protected power strips. Some even have USB slots for charging cell phones and other electronics.

I'd would not use a Dollar store extension cord though.

We've only been thru this about a half doz times. re surge protectors on cruise ships, and why they're universally prohibited. ...and Im not sure what the Dollar store reference has to do with it. A UL approved extension cord is ok with me purchased anywhere. All Im concerned about (just a little) is that it reaches the bed in the cabin.


Thanks for the update.
