Dorm Essentials for Studying or Traveling Internationally
Going to college internationally? There's some dorm essentials you're going to need to make college living better! When you're going to college internationally, you have a lot more to think about and a lot more dorm necessities on your college dorm checklist that you do not want to forget. We're serious - you really, really don't want to forget about these things. You may not know that all electrical outlets are not the same. Depending on where you are traveling to, the outlets are going to be a little different which means you won't be able to plug in your smartphone or college laptop. Below you will find some additions to your college dorm checklist that are essential to have on hand whether you are traveling or studying abroad.
1 - Plug Adapter
- DormCo carries a few varieties of these plug adapters. We carry a Europe and Asia Ungrounded Plug Adapter
in a one or three pack so you can get as many as you need (remember - you're going to have quite a few dorm electronics you're going to want plugged in at all times. You don't want to unplug something every time you need something else plugged in). We also carry a North and South America Ungrounded and Grounded Plug Adapter
. All of these adapters have the same purpose - they convert foreign plugs to fit the outlets in the area you are visiting or moving to. These plugs are also labeled with the regions intended for use so you don't have to try to remember where the adapters can be used. These plugs are safe for tablet and smartphone power cords but of course you also need to remember that international current varies so you may also require a converter for safe usage.
