    Not sure if in right place - looks like the tech sections gone.

    Anyway can't really find an answer online. Do international travel adaptors affect the power going through? Basically I'm in detroit and my s--- is charging unbelievably slow. Even when my phone/tablet is switched off. It's the same cable I've used at home and I've even bought another here which has maybe improved a little bit. The only thing i can put it down to is maybe the converter I've got (cos we'v got different plugs to you guys)

    Is that a thing or?

    The worst areas in Detroit represent what would have happened to Australia if we let the Aboriginals take over
