We are spending 5 days in barcelona prior to our med cruise. We will have a camera, an iPhone, 2 iPods and maybe a couple other pieces of electronics. What are we going to need to be able to charge all of these? Could anybody recommend what type of adapters we will need? Thanks!

Our hotel had what we needed available as loaners.

I wouldn't want to rely on that, though. I bought a nice package of adapters from www.magellans.com (http://www.magellans.com), but I know they also have them at places like Target and Radio Shack.

I'm just too OCD, and bring probably way more than I should......

We got 2 sets of plug adapters from Target, but only took the ones we needed. For most modern electronics, you shouldn't need a voltage adapter, just the plug adapter - most chargers for phones, tablets, laptops, eReaders, etc. are dual-voltage. Just check the adapter and make sure it can use either 110 or 220.

The plug adapters are pretty inexpensive - the set from Target ran (I think) $15-$20, and has adapters for pretty much everywhere in the world. We were going to London after an EBTA so knew we'd need adapters. Since we also plan to go to China and other places, we figured it was better to just get the set. It was a good thing, too, because I had an unexpected international business trip and the adapters were really needed!

We are currently traveling in Spain. I brought two 2-pin European adapters to charge our cameras and iPods. Works just fine.
