Travel Tip of the Day 2
Before traveling overseas, take a good look at the adapter on your laptop. Most adapters will tell you that they will adapt a voltage anywhere from 100 to 240 volts into the 20 volts that your computer battery requires. This is a nice feature for your laptop as it will be able to go to Europe with you with minimal trouble. All you'll need then is a 99 cent adapter as opposed to the much more expensive $30 converter. It's what they call "dual voltage", a thing heavily advertised in the on-post stores for those Americans who wish to buy a TV here and have it moved back there.
