Charge multiple Devices with an Power Strip connect to an European Adaptor

Hi,
We are planning on a trip to Amsterdam & Greece this May.
We are palling to bring our own UK power strip and an europe 2 pin plug adaptor,.
Just wonder if we could plug the UK power strip into the europe plug adaptor , then charge multiple devices with that power strip? will it burn?
Devices such as laptop, cameras, IPhones and power banks.

That will be fine. We do it the other way round when visiting the UK from the Netherlands. Same voltage, so provided you don't overload the power strip it won't be a problem.

No reason why it should burn. Voltage is the same across Europe; the only difference is the plugs and sockets.

It should be fine. Just make sure all of the devices you plan to plug into it are dual voltage.

Dual voltage is unlikely to be an issue as the UK and mainland Europe have the same power voltage and Hz. Nothing will 'burn'. But taking a North American powerstrip to the UK or Europe is another matter.
