    Been thinking about this for some time now.

    What I've read thus far, a two prong flat outlet is standard in the Philippines, same in the US but runs at 220v rather than 110v. One of the sources I read: What is the electric power in the Philippines is it 50hz of 60hz

    My US Olympus battery charger for my E-P3 is spec'd:

    Input: 100-240v/~50-60Hz 0.14A

    So no need for an adapter???

    You don't need any adapter. Your Olympus charger is fine in RP

    I love the higher voltage in Asia. Everything seems to charge faster!

    Yes most modern chargers are auto-voltage regulated already so no problem with that.

    As for the plug as long as it's 2 pin flat type plug, no need for any adapter at all when travelling to the Philippines
