Travelling to Cuba, which adapter do I need for a phone charger?
Just remembered that I am probably going to need an adapter for the phone charger.
Does anyone here know which type I need?

Look at the fine print on the wall-wart (for a phone charger or electric shaver)/transformer box (for a notebook computer). Nowadays the VAST majority of them will be marked "100-240V 50-60Hz". If yours is, then all you'll need is a cheap plug adapter, not a voltage converter as the transformer will automatically adjust for 220V in Cuba (or wherever). Better safe than sorry, carry a plug adapter in case your hotel has the Euro 2-pins rather than the American flat blades.
If your device is marked for 120V only then you'll need to seek out a 120V outlet (some hotels put that in the bathroom for use with cheaper shavers) or use a voltage converter.

1. many hotels have 110V with North-American plug.

Where people run into trouble the most is when they try to bring their own hairdryers, many of which are rated for 120V only (as I've read elsewhere). If you travel a lot and need a hairdryer, buy a compact 220V model for travel use (or stay at hotels which have hairdryers in the bathroom). I also recall some electric shavers having 120V wall-warts (my old Remington corded was this way), while newer/better models have the 100-240V type, like my current and previous Braun rechargeables.
