I'm travelling to Japan soon, so I'm looking for power adapters for my (Australian) laptop and phone chargers.
My laptop charger has an earthed plug, and as such most of the adapters that I've found won't work as they don't take earthed plugs.
As such, I'm considering getting a plug that has USA Type B plug output as some sites seem to indicate that Japan has some power points that support the third earthed pin. However, other sites say they're not supported.
Are Type B points common? Or am I better off finding an alternate way to charge my laptop (e.g. trying to obtain a North American charger that has a Type A plug).
