If travelling to more than one country the best international travel power adapter for Bangladesh is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Bangladeshis use four different standards of power outlets (G, C, D and K) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries around the world simply by changing the supplied plugs.
