I'm travelling to the U.S., Canada & Alaska and would like to find out whether it is feasible to use an Australian ( 240 volt ) powerboard + a 2-pin adapter plugged in to their 110 volt outlets without causing meltdown.
I need to be able to charge up to four camera batteries, a laptop and a phone/ i-pad in breaks between excursions and would rather not have to carry six adapters and forage for power outlets behind beds, desks or fridges.
Has anyone had this experience? Do I need a step up transformer? I can't see that using a U.S. powerboard would do much to advance my cause.
