How to charge the laptop and the smartphone abroad, if you forget your adapter
Last week, I flew to London, where not only the traffic is not as people, but also the power outlet. I prudently got a special adapter with European power outlet and the British left them home safely. I had to get out.
The first and most
boring the best way to solve the problem - it is to come to the reception of the hotel and ask if they have the correct adapter, very often they are inherited from the former forgetful guests. If we live in an apartment, ask the owner, experienced landlords buying multiple adapters for visitors from other countries. In an extreme case, an adapter can be bought in the nearest supermarket (usually at the box office), but it would be too easy.
But it is likely that you, like me, do not hit, and the reception will not appear adapter, do not worry, there are a couple life hacking, how to charge your gadgets in England, the United States or any other country with a non-standard outlets.
To charge your phone, tablet, or other small gadgets you can use any USB port, which are now in the most unexpected places, for example, almost all new TVs.
Most often, the port is located somewhere on the side, but can also back, top or bottom, sure to find him were not working. Keep in mind that some of the TV must be enabled in order to start charging, and tablets, especially the new iPad, can be charged very slowly due to the small current in the TV's USB port.
If you bring a MacBook or other laptop, then on the one hand it can be used to charge various gadgets via USB, but on the other for charging the computer itself will have to find an outlet. But here, to help us come this unnecessary accessory of any hotel room with television. Sockets can be different in different countries, but the connectors in the most power supplies in all the same, so are looking for, where the power cord connects to the TV and boldly (but carefully, there is a high voltage still) pull out his.
We put the TV cord instead of the native cord from the laptop power supply. Voila, the MacBook charging.
Against the advice of use socket failed to razors in the bathroom. Plug it entered without any problems, but the charge was, there may in some hotels is up and running and I was just unlucky.
Remember that the best life hacking for travel - it do not forget :)
