    If you’re worried about it not working, you could just plan to pick one up here in the U.S.! You can get a good one for a little over $10. Converters are a good investment if you’re going to travel a lot though. Except I used my converter in London and it still destroyed by hair dryer on day one of my trip!! Haha but have fun in Hawaii, that sounds nice right about now!
