  • It is very useful *in Switzerland* (not in Brazil)

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It is very useful *in Switzerland*.
    This kind of adapter typically does not have a pin for earth, but this one does.
    Line, earth, and neutral pins are identified.

    Cons:

    The main problem of this adapter is that you cannot connect an IEC-906-1 plug (proposed universal standard for 3-pin connectors, based on IEC 60906-1) to it. Thus, if you have a Brazilian or South African device, for instance, you cannot use it in Switzerland.

    OtherThoughts:

    Notice that this is not an IEC-906-1 adapter, as I firstly thought. Thus, the male side of the device will not fit your Brazilian outlet (IEC 60906-1 / NBR 14136 standard). In addition, you are not able to connect a Brazilian device to it (if you are planning to use it in Switzerland, for instance). Even though the item description is clear, I thought that the plug dimensions were the same, but they are not.

    Bottomline:

    Do not buy if you are planning to use this device in Brazil, since its dimensions are different from the new Brazilian standard.
    Não compre se você pensa em utilizá-lo no Brasil, visto que as dimensões são diferentes das do novo padrão brasileiro. (in Portuguese)
