It's Electric

When you travel people often think about how to convert their money.  In many countries you

must also convert your electricity so that your appliances work properly and safely.  In Qatar, you need to use a UK Type G adaptor with all any gadgets and gizmos you bring into the country.  

The Type G electrical plug is a British three-pin rectangular blade plug that has a protective fuse inside to protect cords from high-current circuits. Type G outlets generally include safety switches.

Judging by my tech toy needs, I think an power strip with at least 8 outlets is going to be on my shopping list.
