I am going to Paris and Italy in 2 months. I want to be able to make sure I can recharge my digital camera battery, digital video camera battery, and IPod. I have looked at the Samsonite Converter/Adapter Plug Kit, but it says that it is NOT to be used for battery charging. Any advice?
Thanks,
Mick

For low power uses like battery charging you need a transformer, not a converter. They're ususally around $20, and can be found at travel or luggage stores, Brookstone and the like, and probably at Walmart or Target. You'll need an adapter plug also, and I think Italy and France use the same size.

Check your charger. Some chargers work 110V - 220V~50/60Hz. You may need only an adapter.
