>> I tried to search for what kind of power adapter is needed for iphone charging in Switzerland and I got mixed results......some say general europe power adapter works, some say need special 3 prong one in switzerland, so I'm confused. For interlaken/zuric area, what kind of adapter should I carry to charge iphone? <<
If you are charging an iPhone, you can plug it into a USB port. If the TV in your hotel room has a USB port, you could use that.
You can also buy plug-in USB ports with interchangeable prongs, and usually one of them will be the right type for Switzerland.
If you already have a round two-prong adaptor that is commonly used in Europe, you can buy an adaptor that you can use with it piggy-back fashion to fit the hexagonal Swiss power points. The InterDiscount store in the lower level shopping area of Zürich Hauptbahnhof (Zürich main station) sells them. They are open Monday to Friday 8am to 9pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am to 8pm. (You mentioned you would be going to Zürich).
Hope this helps.
