With this impromptu set-up, I was able to charge my MacBook Pro and my phone, and I was able to have enough power to create this Instructable. I hope...
This Instructable will show you how I was able to hack a way to charge my MacBook Pro and iPhone without a travel charger while in Korea.
Step 1: Identify the Problem...
I'm in Korea right now, and I was planning to stay at a westernized hotel which I knew had US style AC power outlets. So I didn't bother bringing my international travel AC adapter.
But at the last minute, I was offered the amazing opportunity to stay in an authentic historic Korean house called Irang through a service similar to AirBnB called Kozaza. I even met the founder of Kozaza, a very kind gentleman named SanKu Jo. Of course I jumped at the opportunity!
SanKu was nice enough to drive me to the Irang House. After he briefed me on the features of the house, he left.
But I soon noticed that all the AC outlets were the Asian 2-prong round type. And here I was without any adapters, and my MacBook Pro and iPhone were down to about 10% power.
So what would I do?
Simple...as a Maker, I got right to work.
