What power adapter do I need when traveling from Canada to Portugal?

I will be traveling to Portugal (from Canada) and have no idea what kind of power adapter I need to take with me. I will need an adapter to charge my camera and for a couple of other electronics. If someone has knowledge of power adapters, or could provide a link to details about the right adapter, that would be helpful. Thank you!

    Hello,

    Target sells them for about 20 dollars. Portuagal has 220-volt plugs (Canada has 120 volt). Also, the plug pins that you will need in Portugal are two round pins (Canada has two blades). So your adapter will need to adapt from 120 volts to 220 volts and adapt from 2 blade pins to 2 round pins

    Here is one

    Target usually displays them in the luggage section.

    Just google “all in one travel adapter plug” or something like that to see pictures. Amazon.com is also a good place to look at pictures and prices and to buy if you like online shopping.
    Make sure the device transforms the voltage as well as provides the round “Euro” plugs.
    Some of the really cheap adapters just adapt the physical plug, and the voltage is not changed. If you get the cheap ones that don’t transform, you will nuke your electronics gear.
