Some ten years or so ago my then soon to be wife and I were "shopping" in a French electronics store when she spotted a 5 outlet power strip that was for European plugs. It was one of the best things we ever purchased as it has made dozens of crossings.
While I also carry a Monster USA 4 outlet adapter, the longer cord and the bigger footprint makes it very useful in older hotels where the power outlet is only one or two and usually hidden behind some piece of furniture.
By using European power cords for my Apple and Android devices, I have the best of both worlds. I can carry them without the need for small adapters that often get lost, and use the local ones anywhere while having my hotel room all ready for my return.
