Best voltage converter/electrical outlet adapter for Kenya?

Any recommended brands and/or models for combined voltage converters/electrical outlet adapters? I’m coming from the US and am finding that a lot of the ones on amazon only work to convert to UK/European/AUS outlets. Thanks!

Pin adapters that accept American plugs can be bought cheaply in Kenya. All the supermarkets carry them and electrical shops do as well. You can buy one for as little as 2-3 USD, but those cheap models don't have surge protectors. Of course the airport shops have better quality pin adapters for higher prices.

As for voltage conversion, your phone charger and other chargers are likely to be "wide input" and accept any voltage up to 240. So probably no need to bring a voltage adapter, but double check the ratings on your gadget chargers.
