United States Travel Adapter Video
When traveling to the United States from another country, you will need to use a US travel adapter plug to charge your phone, tablet and laptop computer. The United States has extra safety requirements and require that plugs be polarized to prevent electric shock. United states power plugs have to flat pins with one pin being wider than the other (polarized). If you are traveling from the United States to a foreign country that uses the same type of outlet, you may need to bring an adapter plug. Other foreign countries do not require their outlets to be polarized and your United States polarized plug will not fit into the outlet without a North America travel adapter.
