The $12 adapter plug
I’d found adapter plugs in Amazon at $2.99 but I’d have to pay $6.95 shipping fee plus tax. On Monday afternoon, I took the bus (Foothill Transit) to Westfields in West Covina and visited the Radioshack store. I found the “foreign” adapter plug but I was shocked at the price – $10.99. That’s like 11x its price in Seoul! Anyway, I really wanted to use the netbook and my battery charger (for my Eneloops) so I just bought it. With California’s 9.25% sales tax, I paid $12.01. Yikes!
I should’ve searched for other places to get it cheaper like at The Source, where I’m planning to get a new Xbox from. Anyway, I’m pretty sure I’ll need a US to foreign adapter plug for it and I already have one back home. Some things here in the US are cheaper, but I’m quite surprised at how expensive that adapter plug is!
