I was looking at John Heald's blog today. He has a wish list. #6 on the list To go back in time and stop whoever invented the power strip from doing so.

So now I just take a battery operated one.

I bet! I'm just going to take an adapter in my backpack along with my bottle of Pinot Grigio.

We would have a hard time without a strip of some kind. Below is what we use. I also need an extension cord. I have a c-pap and the plug is just too far away to not use one.
I remember on the Pride about 6 years ago I lost or forgot my cord. We request and got one delivered to our cabin. It was the thickest, longest cord I have ever seen. I will never forget mine again.

That small adapter would be perfect for my uses.

We got it at WalMart. It has served us well. I have even let a few in motels along the way .
The cpap and the laptop are the two main things we need extra power for.

I am glad that they are outlawing power strips, it can very easily cause a fire when a circuit is overloaded. As you said, Dave, these ships were not designed for more than one outlet. You put a curling iron, blow dryer, flat iron, battery charger, laptop, and a fan on one circuit, you could be asking for problems. I am sure people even hang more than that off of one.

I know it will not sit well with some, but it is a good idea. It shouldn't be left to discretion, but just a rule. It doesn't seem that many care about formal nights anymore, and those that do can have their hair done in the salon or use the blow dryer with a curling brush.

Hi Dave,

I'm really surprised that each cabin doesn't have a cut-out when overloading occurs. We have less of a problem with UK electrical items due to the 240V creating less heat, and we also have fuses in all of our plugs.

Regards,

Bill
