I am moving to Quito on Tuesday from Canada and am doing some last minute shopping. I know the outlets are normally 120V, but do I have to worry about finding an apartment that has 120V grounded outlets? Also, what are the prices of batteries like? If they are pricey I would look to invest in a set of rechargeable ones before leaving. Thanks for everyone's help over the last few weeks and I really look forward to meeting you all soon once I get to Quito next week!
