If you're travelling abroad, you'll want to charge your devices along the way. But with limited space in your luggage, you won't want  to buy a different travel adapter for each country you visit. Hence the rise of 'universal' travel charger, which promises support you in over 100 countries worldwide. 

We place 'universal' in quotation marks for a reason: there's no such thing as a travel adapter that will work absolutely everywhere. That said, the devices on our list are well-equipped to handle the three major standards of US, UK, and EU plugs, covering the vast majority of global destinations.
