All of our portable devices are designed to support a wide range of electrical voltages (from 100 to 250 volts), power (from 1000 to 2500 watts) and frequencies (50-60 Hz). Therefore, current transformers are not required; Only a power plug adapter is required.

The new universal adapters are really well designed, and in fact you only need one to power all your devices at the same time. Just bring the cables in your luggage and leave the power supply at home.

While searching the Amazon Giant Store, I found these two versatile models and they are almost identical to the one I made on my journey. An important detail, the type of card must correspond to the type of country to visit.

When you receive the adapter, try it out. If you succeed at home, you will work outside. You will see, it will become a kind of common charging station for all mobile devices once you plug it into the kitchen or living room outlet.

Unlike the other adapter, the USB-C port is not of the PD (Power Delivery) type.

A virtual private network to secure your communications

Three letters: VPN, for “Virtual Private Network”, absolutely necessary to protect your communications abroad, whether for your laptop or for your phones and tablets.

Every time you go online, you are not aware of the true security of connections. Without a VPN subscription, your WiFi connections at airports, internet cafes, hotels, and rental apartments are not secure and made with equipment that is not yours. And you can be sure that in some countries and airports, there is nothing wrong with monitoring all your wireless WiFi connections.

I’ve been using a VPN for a long time as all my communications are encrypted to access my bank accounts and other password-secured websites.

Another advantage of VPN services is the choice of servers around the world. For example, without access to a VPN, open the web page of the Techno department of Montreal Journal Or otherwise impossible if you are far away in Asia or Europe. To read your favorite article types, simply select one of the Montreal or Canada servers using a VPN app on your phone or computer. The process only takes a few seconds and you are done. for server register Or your bank, you are considered in the country. The encrypted connection to the VPN server resumes immediately after suspension or standby.

Last details, VPN service secures only your internet connections – Web, FaceTime, Messages, Facebook, WhatsApp, mobile apps, etc. – and not your phone calls, unless you subscribe to a VoIP service (VoIP, eg Line2.com).

I will soon be reporting on my experience with VPN subscriptions I have used for the past few years here.
