    We're going to Thailand for 6 weeks. If I buy a charger for my MP3 player here (Canada) will it work there? We're also stopping in Hong Kong on the way there for a few days. Should I wait and buy one there?

    The only issue is voltage, but virtually all modern-day gadgets can accept the full range of 100-240 volt. Look on the bottom of the charger for "100-240v" and then it'll be fine. Thai plugs are almost all the same shape you get in US/Canada too.

    Hi Emmryss,

    The Captain is correct. But, if you're not entirely sure if you want to risk it, just pick up an electrical outlet adapter for Thailand. You can get them at most of the big stores, as well as camera and travel shops. Here in Canada they are cheap and easy to find ... and they work. Future Shop, Black's, Best Buy, CAA offices, etc. should all carry them. I got mine at Henry's Cameras. It came in a bag with adapters for, pretty much, each part of the world. I think I paid around $10 for the lot. You can get them at the airports, as well, but you pay a lot more for them.

    Also, most guest houses have computers where you can charge with a USB cable. All you have to do is ask, and make sure that iTunes is disabled (if you're using an iPod). You can also charge in any internet cafe if you're using them often.
