Regarding using a power bar in another country, say the UK, is there not a problem with the differing voltages? I’m off to the UK in a couple weeks and I wanted to try this trick, but none of the power bars I’ve found so far are rated for more than 120V…

The idea here, and it sounds like we were not clear enough, was that you plug a normal (normal for wherever you are from) into a power converter. So the power converter would convert down to 120v. But, it is a good point that you might have to use a power converter and not just a plug adapter.



Chris, I thought as much, but I wasn’t sure. I believe all of my chargers (Canon batter, iPod, laptop, etc) are 120V-240V, so I don’t really need a converter, just an adapter. I thought it odd that nobody has made a 240V powerbar-type converter for travelers.

What a bitter sweet show on photography. I love all the new technology but I’m saddened that I neglected to take my trusted travel companion of 2 decades, my Nikon FM2 to Ireland last month. Past few trips I’ve brought my Sony mini DV, while the FM2 sits at home with 7 pictures shot many months ago. Loved that camera!



Andrew mentioned a couple links in the show, e.g. hard disk backup. Can you post the links on the show notes? Thanks!

Hi Lan: Since the interview, many new backup services have come online. I like because you can backup a main drive and an external drive. The downside is that any online backup is relatively slow, but with a fast internet connection, you can move about 30GB in a day.
