THIS WON'T WORK The approach I would recommend in this case is, for each device you want to charge, get a charger suitable for use in a car (ie from a 12V DC socket, like the cigarette lighter socket in cars) and then get a large 12V battery with that type of outlet. The batteries are generally sold for use with CPAP devices (a medical device used to treat ...

I saw on TV that it exists a solar charger around 17V. I guess that this could be an easy answer to your troubles. I've never tried it myself, but this is quite interesting. http://www.voltaicsystems.com/solar-macbook-charger And as Aditya said, I think that anyway, you will have to buy a MagSafe cable (Apple doing Apple stuff :) )

Okay, so I understand your issue and considering that you need to charge your laptop through a battery pack you will need a battery pack which can output a voltage higher than 5V which is the USB standard. For your Nikon D3, the battery is 11V and the standard charger provides 12.6V at 1.2 A in order to charge the battery. Now, one option which you should ...

I agree with Lukasz, gps units can last decades. Like you I own a Garmin eTrex Vista HCx and I love it. Even to the extent that I now use it as satnav in my car,since upgrading the Vista with road changes and directions is free with Open Street maps, whereas the car satnav systems typically charge you quite some fees. It is far superior then the satnav sold ...

A few years is quite a recent as for GPS device, which are designed to last for years, and not 1-2 years like smartphones... I've bought Garmin Etrex 20, which has similar capabilities to yours, but you'll want probably a bit more. As for tracking, Etrex may be too little. I don't know how it is with tracks, it has the ability to 'archive' them, but it has ...

You won't have any problem: voltage is the same and if you're only planning to plug chargers they require very little power so no issue there either

Avoid doing this and you will be safe :) Voltage won't be a problem. Still remember to check if travelling for other countries outside Europe. a few mobile and laptop chargers should not be a problem connected on the same power strip. Still, if you're planning to hook more devices be carefull with the itensity (and this is where you can screw up with too ...

I've done this all over the world without incident. Just make sure your devices are ok with the voltage coming from the wall, and that you're not throwing away grounding protection by using a two prong adapter instead of one with a grounding strip. To check voltages, I use Wikipedia. In your case Spain and the UK are on the same voltage, so that's not an ...
