Holidaymaker Shares Plug Adapter Hack That Will Make Summer Holiday A Lot Easier
| Last updated
With many of us cautiously optimistic about the idea of getting a summer holiday this year, it might be time to start thinking about packing your bags and jetting off somewhere sunny.
However, when it comes to packing it can be a bit of a minefield - wanting to make sure you hit the weight restrictions, but also ensuring you've got everything you need for your trip, including enough adapters to keep all your various electronics charged and ready to use.
But one savvy holidaymaker has shared a super simple hack that helps solve that problem once and for all.
Sasha, from Nottingham, posted on Twitter a couple of years back where she revealed that rather than chucking multiple travel adapters in her case, she just packs one and an extension lead with several sockets to make sure she's got ample outlets for her electronics.
How had I not thought of this before?
She wrote online: "Am I the only person who takes an extension lead on holidays instead of taking a dozen plug adaptors?"
They do say the most simple ideas are the best and Sasha has surely hit the nail on the head with this neat little trick.
Since she posted her tweet, it has been liked more than 9,000 times and received more than 1,000 retweets.
Hundreds of people have since commented on the post thanking Sasha for bringing this into their lives.
One person wrote: "This legit has just blown my mind! Why have I never thought of this."
Tagging her mate into the comment, a second said: "We are doing this on holiday because I'm sick of never having enough plug sockets near the mirror."
A third user put: "This is genius! I'll be doing this from now on.
"To be honest I can't believe I didn't ever think of this before."
While a fourth person commented: "This is such a good idea! Get one packed in those suitcases for next week!"
Another said: "I only started doing this few years ago - can't believe I'd never thought of it before."
Of course, Sasha wasn't the first person to think of the nifty travel tip, with some saying they had been doing it for ages.
One smug traveller said: "Done this since the 90s - you only need one adaptor that way. [sic] Obviously everyone else does this too, right?"
Another said: "We have always done this on holiday, we take one for us and one for the kids and it saves so many arguments."
While a third forward-thinking person commented: "Yes - we have one with built in USB chargers. Don't forget to take your kettle and teabags too."
