I would love to hear from anyone who can give me a link to buying a travelsmart adapter. I have looked on the usual sites, Amazon etc, the prices range from £6 to £90...??? I just want to take my PC which has a French plug but that I currently use with a French to Brit adapter, and my camera, just looked..;the same problem. There are soooo many sorts, I am confused :?

Hi Elizabeth

It's me that's confused now. Amazon.co.uk are selling the item for £2.13 plus £1.97 postage - so £4.10 in total.

Make sure the power adapter on your power lead can do 50-60 watts otherwise it won't work.

Travel adaptors are available at Dixons and Boots airside / departures at Gatwick. They are also available here on island.
