While you're on the road, these accessories often come in handy.
Other countries provide electricity of different voltages through differently shaped electrical sockets. So if you'll be traveling with electrical appliances or your computer, these accessories are a must.
See the REI Expert Advice article, Electricity Guide for Travelers, for instructions and country-by-country outlet/voltage charts.
If you can't leave home without it, there's likely a travel-size version that will take up less space in your luggage. These accessories range from mini curling irons and hair dryers to clip book lights and travel radios. Whether you pack these accessories is up to you.
If you'll be staying in urban areas, aren't worried about carrying extra gear and prefer to have all the conveniences of home while you're on the road, they could be worth bringing. Otherwise, consider taking a vacation from appliances by leaving them at home.
