Satechi Smart Travel Router and Adapter

Special to The Miami Herald

The Smart Travel Router and Adapter from Satechi is kind of a Swiss Army knife of international electric plugs. Built into the 3.5-inch diagonal plastic cube are four retractable prong formations compatible with the most common outlets in 150 countries, including the United States, Canada, China, Mexico, Australia and most of Europe. The cube also has an integrated 5V, 2.1A USB port able to charge tablets, smart phones, laptops and cameras, as well as a Wan/Lan port for connecting an Ethernet cable (cable not included). But wait, there’s more. The router can connect to the Internet via a wireless signal letting users create their own secure network while charging their devices. Note, this charger/adapter converts the power prongs to various international outlet formations, but does not convert the electrical output current and voltage. Most devices appropriate for travel have integrated adaptable circuitry for electrical compatibility, but best to double check.

Satechi Smart Travel Router and Adapter is $44.99 at www.satechi.net.

Having your own wheels is ideal for getting to more remote or rural places that aren’t covered as well by public transportation: England’s Cotswolds, Norway’s fjord country, Spain’s Picos de Europa mountains, France’s Normandy beaches, Tuscan hill towns.…

    There’s no shortage of hot dog stands hawking that spicy, oh-so-Alaska treat, the reindeer dog, in downtown Anchorage. But only one of them has consistently long lines.
