Same Power for Laptop, Digi Camera and M Phone

Is there any way of using the same power supply
unit for LapTop, digital camrea and mobile
phone? These three gauges are almost essential
for a traveller. It is really too much trouble
to carry so many power units. A single unit
will save a lot of trouble.

Unfortunately different devices, even different types of one device, require specific voltages and currents. You could buy a power supply with adjustable voltage, but the supply current would be fixed. You would risk damaging the device and invalidating any warranty. You could, of course, invest in a laboratory power supply, but you would need a suitcase to carry it!

Its very unlikely that they would all use the same voltage and could destroy them if you use the wrong one.

Each adapter will have a sticker telling you what the input and output voltage is and the laptop, camera, etc should have one saying what input voltage they accept.
