Type of plugs in Bali...

Hello,
I'm bringing my camera, cell phone, and respective chargers with me to Bali. What kind of plug converter do I need? I live in the U.S. Thanks so much for your assistance.

www.kropla.com/electric2.htm talks about three plug configurations in Indonesia, but the only one we found in Bali was the European type, with two round pins - you can pick up an adapter for them anywhere.

BTW, if your cellphone is the one you use at home it will need to be a triband or quadband GSM type, able to handle the 900 and/or 1800 MHz frequency bands as well as the US 850/1900, but I guess you've got that all sorted out.

Have a great time.

Be aware that the voltage is 220 in Bali. Check that your appliances have built in voltage converters (most do nowadays) AND that the cord can use 220 V (it will be written on the plug part somewhere or right along the wire the voltage capacity. My Japanese cell phone, equipped with world wide roaming, had a power cord that could only by used with 120 Volts or less, so I had to buy a seperate one that could go to 220 V.

Just to confirm - all plugs in Indonesia take two round pins, and are often recessed in a slotted round hole.
