Hi I'm visiting switzerland soon and am confused as to what kind of adapter to buy for my iphone?. I am coming from united states. I also was wondering if anyone knows what kind of adapter I would need for Italy. I am staying near lake como
thank you very much
adapter to do what - plug into the wall?
Go to Amazon and search for converter for Switzerland. The ones for the country are different from all others. There have been posts about this and some folks say you can also use the European type but these may not work everywhere in Switzerland. I have used the “Swiss” converters and never had a problem. There are converters at Amazon (and hence elsewhere on the web) that include USB as well as the US 3 prong plug. Here’s one.

yes a plug for a wall
thank you pvonk, i will check it out
looks like switzerland is type J plug and italy must fall into the catagory of C plug
Just get a multiway adapter and you will have no problems. I bought a new one recently for a trip in the 'opposite direction' as we are going to US/Canada this summer
The one I have is similar to this:

I wonder about the multi-way adapter. The Amazon site doesn’t mention type J for Switzerland in the description for this adapter.
I am in Switzerland right now and visiting from USA. I bought type J adapter from amazon and it works here.

ok on the plug in switzerland, now does anyone know what type of plug for italy?
Unfortunately I don't know, as I always just travel with an international adaptor and the forum is mainly focussed on Switzerland.
Maybe other travellers have more input to share.
you need type L for Italy ( or you can use international adaptor for Southern Europe .
thank you Lana
