    Default A charger that will charge multiple devices in a strange country - any ideas?

    email from daughter:
    "papa, aunty d and your little brother are going on pilgrimage next week.It's one of those pilgrimages where electronic equipment is authorised. So to this end, aunty d is on the hunt for a device to charge her multiple devices (phone, iphone, kobo and uncle K's ipad)

    do you know of a device? ideally it would be able to charge multiple devices simultaneously as access to power sources in pilgrim huts could be restricted. ideas?"

    Any Pressf1 suggestions? I think they're going to northern Spain

    Since their already have a iPad, just get the travel charger adaptors. And plug the USB cords into that.

    Most on Cruise Critic go for Belkin as they are great for confined spaces and can be rotated to suit

    Available world wide and has the advantage of being a Surge protector as well

    @Lawrence Thanks for the Belkin link. It looks good to me. Plod, I don't know whether any of their devices are chargeable via USB but it's a good idea (5V being 5V regardless of AC volts)
