Hey folks, I'm traveling from the UK and bringing the usual Ipod with me. Just wondering what is the best travel adaptor to use and whether I also need to bring a voltage converter with me?

You can pickup adapters pretty cheap in Thailand - much cheaper than at home. Not sure about the diff between adapters in the UK and Vietnam, but they are different in each of the SEA countries. I just picked up a cheap universal adapter that allowed me to use it all over SEA and in the US.
AFAIK, the ipod AC adaptor is universal (multiple voltage) . You can check by looking at the specs. It should say something like "100-240 volts AC" so you shouldn't need a transformer/voltage converter.
I've found the two-pronged round european plug works most places. They also sometimes use a flat-pronged plug but you will probably be able to buy that locally, though I've never needed it. I've charged my ipod in some pretty remote places, including a homestay on the way to Dien Bien Phu.

We bought adaptors at BenThan Market in HCMC. Much cheaper than buying before you leave. A man was selling them at a small stall outside the Market building on the opposite side to the round-a-bout.

As goonistik says, the chargers for all Apple products work with 240 voltage. I've never had a problem charging ipods or macs anywhere in Vietnam, Laos, Thailand or Cambodia, using the normal standard issue chargers.
Thank you everyone - I just bought a worldwide travel adaptor....
