3 prong electric cord

Recommended Posts

150 joules is an operating function of a surge suppressor....so no, it is not allowed and you risk confiscation if you were to try to take it aboard.

A surge protector will have a rating in Joules of energy, as well as the maximum voltage it can take from a power spike.  If you find those numbers either on the box it came it or on the strip itself, then it is a surge protector.

 

Unrelated note, the "lock" on the wardrobe doesn't look very effective. :classic_biggrin:

Yes the lock is definitely not effective but does the job of keeping that darn door closed! 😂😂🤪

Thank you everyone.  This is the response I needed to know, so I’m not bringing it.  A regular extension cord it is then.  Nancy 😎

 

We don't have very many devices that really need three prong outlets like a CPAP or anything so we've converted to using devices like this that plug into the 220v outlet for Euro devices: https://www.amazon.com/Syncwire-Charger-Adapter-Samsung-Android/dp/B011KPRE1G/  For us it works to charge all our devices and security never bats an eye, and uses a receptacle that we would never use otherwise.  

 

That leaves the three prong outlet for my wife's curling iron and whatever else she brings in that case of mysteries.
