They are great in times of absolute necessity and we would always recommend keeping yours with you as you travel. These chargers fit a 3 pin plug socket that is in all homes. It is important to note that these chargers are not suitable for your primary charging method, because standard sockets are not ideal for supplying high levels of power over a long duration of time.
