Do you ever find yourself heading overseas and at the last minute think, Shoot! Which power adapter do I need in this country?

That $30+ investment is now in the flotsam heap and I take one power plug adapter for the country or countries I’m going to and a multi-box with about 4 power points in it from home so I can charge all my gadgets at once.
So here’s some photos of the power plugs/sockets/outlets I’ve started collecting:
