Electrical Adapter


Recommended Posts

We were in Barcelona in October and the hotel had adapters to loan.   So if you're staying in a hotel, you might check to see if they have one you can borrow.   I suspect the adapters they have to loan out are from former tenants who left them in their rooms when they checked out  :)

Anyone who's been to Barcelona before, did you purchase an electrical adapter for your electronics? Two or three prong?

We bought this one through Amazon for about $40 to use in our hotel before and after the cruise.  Worked like a charm!  We did not need it on the ship.

Don't forget to check the voltage of the appliance you are using.  Barcelona, like the rest of Europe is 220v.  

An adapter will allow a US plug fit a Euro socket, but it will not change the voltage.

Most consumer electronic adapters (phone, laptop, electic toothbrushes, etc) are dual voltage which is marked on it (110-240). Small appliances like hair dryers, irons, battery charger, etc are more likely not but some can be.

I found that out the hard way.  The crazy thing is, my hair appliance had the right voltage but I forgot to flip the button to it.  Grrrr!
