Do you bring a surge protector?
 
Do you bring a surge protector/power ? Does Disney care? We will plugging in phones and kindles. Your thoughts?

I learned this tip on the DIS! Such a great way to charge electronics. Plus outlets are often inconveniently located behind beds and nightstands. Power strips solve that problem!

I've never thought about that. Great tip! Thanks for posting.

The one I use is called the power squid surge 1000. I find it best for chargers and their huge plugs

Definitely! The only place I could consistently find several outlets was in the bathroom, and I just don't like the mix of water and electronics. So I have one I keep in the suitcase at all times, so it's there any time I travel. It's made such a difference!

Have learned to Pack one each time that we go. Multiple cell phones, cameras, computer, and dh's CPAP...the outlets are just not where you need them to be.

I have traveled with one each time I travel with multiple people. Between phone chargers, camera/battery chargers, contact lens cleaners, curling irons, hair straighteners, etc. you definitely need one.

Yep, we have two in our Owner's Locker.

Glad to see you like this one as I have it on my Amazon Wish List to purchase when we get closer to out trip. With 2 Kindle Fires, 2 cell phone and 2 cameras with rechargable batteries, a surge protector sure seems like a must have for any vacation.

We forgot our surge protector on our last trip. It was tough finding enough open outlets in our room. A surge protector is on the top of the packing list.:thumbsup2

What's a contact lens cleaners? I mean, obviously I can figure it out by the name. I'm just asking because I know tons of contact wearers, my husband and my mom and two brothers included) and nobody has any sort of plug-in device for them.

I did 30 years ago. But I think I was able to get rid of it around 1990, or so

I'm another one who doesn't travel to Disney without a power strip/surge protector. I just bring an extra one from home.

smitch425 05-28-2013 08:39 AM

We take a power strip anytime we stay overnight anywhere. Between 3 handheld game systems, our phones, the iPad, and the Kindle, we never have enough outlets. :rotfl:
