Going to Paris and Italy this summer from the US. I will need to charge my batteries for Olympus EP2. The charger is the BCS1 and the batteries are BLS1. Do I just need a plug adapter? Or do I also need a power converter? Any recommendations?

your Iphone charger will do 220 as well, for Italy you might want to bring Italian 3 prong adapters, some [lave will use the standard euro two prong but some place you will need the other.

Just look on the back of your charging device. If it reads something like "110-240VAC" then you know it is autoranging and will work on European voltages. You only need a dumb piece of plastic and metal that changes the shape of the plug. Much cheaper and lighter than dicey converters, most of which don't have proper transformers anyway.
