    We’re heading to South Africa on Sunday. I ordered a Type M plug adapter via Amazon, but it did not arrive to my office in time. Is there a retailer here that sells travel adapters? I don’t need a voltage converter. Just the plug adapter. Appreciate your responses!

    Try the AAA office at Jefferson Square. They used to have a little travel shop with some books, adapters, money belts.

    Try this search on Google:

    type m plug adapter seattle

    Try placing a wanted ad on craigslist?

    Batteries Plus perhaps?

    Worst case scenario, see if you can purchase one in SA

    Thanks for the responses so far. Unfortunately South Africa has a very odd plug type, so not as easy to find as European versions. I had a light bulb go off in my head that Fry’s might have something. It seeeeems like they do at the Renton store. I’ve yet to hear confirmation. Fingers crossed!

    Try Bergman luggage store. Its downtown, not far from Macy’s. They have a good selection.

    Try Radio Shack. I bought a whole set there years ago.

    Yes I think REI is a good bet. If you are stuck there is usually something in the electronics in duty free or the skymall catalog on the plane.

    Are you sure it is a M? I have an E that I used in South Africa. If you strike out, you can borrow my E. email jlybecker at quidnunc dot net

    Hey everyone! I found them at Fry’s. There’s actually two types that work in SA. I got both just in case. They are “ever so” slightly different from one another. As an FYI, they have a whole section dedicated to travel adapters and converters. Give them a try if you’re ever looking for something special. Bye!
