  • Excellent travel adaptor for normal use

    posted by badmonk on 11/19/2007

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - excellent universal adaptor that works in all countries
    - small and comes with a soft pouch with strap
    - has an LED indication
    - sturdy & solid construction without any loose ends
    - comes with an English instruction manual

    Cons:

    <B>DO NOT PLUG ANY HIGH POWERED DEVICES IN THIS UNIT!</B>. With the first one I bought, I had a mini fireworks show when I plugged a kettle into this unit. As a result, the plastic surrounding the metal pins melted quite a bit and the pins would not retract any longer. So for safety precautions, do not plug high powered devices like kettles, irons, fridges into this unit.

    OtherThoughts:

    The "surge protection" (if it works) of this unit makes it a deal breaker, although I have had no power surges in any of the units I've used before.

    Bottomline:

    At this price, buy a few! Not only it's great for travelling, it's also great if you have appliaces purchased overseas with a different pin. I personally bought 3 of this!
