  • Very versatile adaptor for US, China and Australia

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

    Pros:

    The prongs rotate to suit parallel-type (USA/Canada) or V-type (Australia).
    The socket is listed as UK, but seems to accept almost any type of plug, it definitely works with 2-pin european plugs.
    Build quality is good, and the indicator light is useful.

    Cons:

    Minor problems with British Standard plugs which have a plastic sleeve on the live and neutral pins. There may not be a valid contact if the plug is pushed all the way into the adaptor, therefore do not push a BS plug all the way in.

    OtherThoughts:

    Indicator light works for both US (110volt) and Australia (220volt).
    Prongs are stong and have not been bent by a lot of rough handling during travel.

    Bottomline:

    More useful than I expected when I bought it.
