Does (nearly?) every socket conversion and provides a USB output. Reasonably compact though not all that small compared with some other designs available at DX. Sliders with pop-out pins seem convenient and clever.
Multiple sliders for the pins requires a series of internal lock-out sleeves to prevent pin conflicts. All these fiddly internal bits are packed in like a Swiss watch, but aren't as well made, so they can get messed up. The result isn't easy to fix unless you have 6 hands. Also the USB adaptor has pins that lock onto the main section. These sometimes refuse to release. Mine broke the tips off and now my USB adaptor slips out - needs a rubber band to hold it in.
There are better designs (sku.18126 and 2296) for compact international adaptors both with and without the USB outlet. I can vouch for the non-USB sku.2296 - much more compact and robust, and I'm ordering the USB capable sku.18126 as a second adapter.
Not worth it even though it isn't very expensive. I sort of repaired mine enough to keep it functioning, but tossed it out once I got home.
