Can anyone tell me about travel adapter kits?

I need to buy a travel adapter kit but not sure what brand is good. They sell them at the Sharper Image but again, I don't know what exactly I should be buying. They range in price wildly from $5 to $50. Thanks!

Be sure to check into the right one to buy. I went to India 4 years ago and got an adapter. It worked fine with my laptop but my hair dryer instantly blew out and my curling iron melted. I needed a voltage converter.

Most of Europe will use the same adapter. Electronics almost always will operate on the US 120 volts, or the European 230 volts and only need the adapter. However, other appliances, including hair dryers need a voltage converter, because they only work on 120 volts. Amazon sells whatever you need.
