Voltage Valet Electrical Adaptor for use in Australia, New Zealand, and China – “C” Plug


PackingLight.com’s job is to outfit the traveler with all of the travel essentials one needs to venture anywhere. Our selection of Voltage Valet adaptors allow you to connect your appliance into the outlets of the world.Plug type “C” in for use in Australia, New Zealand, and China and where the outlet has a slanted configuration. This means that even though you could experience a different type of outlet in China for example, that you will commonly encounter the “C” plug (Voltage Valet’s adaptor specification) in these countries. If you are using a grounded three pin appliance you need to purchase a three pin GUC grounded plug. Most common electrical appliances people travel with however, have two standard American-style pins and the “C” two pin plug is appropriate. Please check your electronics before you leave and call us if you need our assistance. We welcome your calls.We urge our visitors to click to our Foreign Electrical page to get more in-depth information on when you need adaptors and converters for travel. Most often we find our customers do not need converters to bring down the 240 voltage found in most countries overseas to our voltage of 110. The reason is they possess appliances that are already dual voltage with the capability to use overseas without using converters. That is correct, people with most battery chargers and small travel appliances can check their appliance and discover their appliance has a rating specification that reads “100/240V”–indicating that the appliance is dual voltage and can work on the high 240 voltage abroad. So please check you chargers for MP3 players, digital cameras, razors, camcorders, cell phones, etc. and look for yourself. In addition, check your compact, folding hair dryers, travel curling irons and straighteners, travel steamers, irons, and coffee makers. If they’re built specifically for travel and/or purchased from PackingLight.com, we can save you the cost of buying a converter when you probably don’t need it!NOTE: Some countries use more than one type of outlet and you should carry the appropriate adaptor for each outlet listed. Remember, adaptor plugs DO NOT convert electricity – they simply modify foreign outlets.If you have ANY questions please CALL US on our toll free number, 1-800-349-0525.To determine the adaptor plug you need, see our link to Voltage Valet’s country list in the Electricity Guide section. http://www.voltagevalet.com/elec_guide.html

The New Zealand Book of the Beach

The New Zealand Book of the Beach


A thematic anthology from the cream of New Zealand’s writers. ‘This book is so redolent of the beach you can smell the lupins. The baches and beaches and the cool front cover are as we all remember them. Fibrolite baches, pohutukawas leaning into the sand, silvery seas, big fish, rips and tides. These stories have heart, soul and that inimitable, unsettling, New Zealand undertow woven into them.… The beach brings out the animal in all of us. We go to the beach to rest, refresh and have fun. Kids snatch their first kisses. Adults strip off their clothes and their inhibitions, swim until their skin wrinkles, lie in the sand until they are crisp, eat and drink too much, and make love (and war) like never before… Graeme Lay’s take on New Zealand at the beach is perceptive. His selection of stories rings true. Satisfying, thoughtful, they make absorbing reading.’ Carroll du Chateau, New Zealand Herald
