Charge your EU cell in the US without an adapter
One less thing to lug around! My father came up with this on his last trip to the US, with his Nokia. Beautifully simple.
Remember though that it only works with chargers that can take 110 volts. (it will say so on the charger) Otherwise your fancy bit of electronics will pop, melt and die before you can unplug it.
DISCLAIMER: Not a hack for idiots. Don’t touch the metal bits while it’s plugged in. Watch out for arcing, especially if it’s a crappy non-grounded outlet. Little kids are curious, gleefully suicidal at a certain age, and have teeny tiny fingers. If you try this and get hurt or hurt someone else, it’s your own damn fault.
